When I graduated from high school in approximately 1872, South Williamsport High School was doing construction on the football field, so instead of graduating at Rodney K. Morgans Stadium, we graduated in right field at Lamade Stadium.

I feel bad for the senior classes of 2020. The missed their lasts of everything. Sports season, proms, graduations, all of it. But that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t recognize the seniors of the classes of 2020. Here at Webb Weekly we are working to celebrate local seniors. Last week Jimmy started with his nephew Chance, and we will continue going forward. You can send information about your senior to me at email@example.com. Please send a rundown of their accomplishments along with a headshot and ‘action’ shot please!
This week’s senior is Alex Reed from Loyalsock High School. Alex is a great kid with an amazing list of accomplishments.
Alex will be attending Duke University in the fall majoring in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics and minoring in Finance. His goal is to work for Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. on Wall Street.
