Six students from Lititz and two from Manheim were among the 53 seniors who participated in the 110th Lancaster Country Day School commencement ceremony on May 19.
Lititz graduates were Noreen El Hosini, Michael Etter, Joseph Gelgot, Bryce Myers, Samuel Wege, and Meredith Wynne.

At an earlier award ceremony, Michael Etter received the Science Award. Twin brothers Daniel and Matthew Lane were the Manheim graduates. During the ceremony, Matthew Lane received The

Trustee Prize, awarded to the senior with the highest cumulative grade point average. At an earlier award ceremony he also received the English Award, Mathematics Award, the Male Athletic of the Year Award and the PIAA E. Jerry Brooks Award. Daniel received the Chinese Award.

The graduates selected Mary Turner, mathematics department chair, to speak to them. 

“As you move through life, you will cross paths with many new people, new ideas, new opportunities,” Turner advised. “It’s always imperative that you remember the lessons of arithmetic: You must determine if these things are adding to or subtracting from your quality of life. Treasure those that add, and don’t be afraid to dismiss the ones that subtract.

“In turn, your impact on the lives of others is equally important. Be a force for good. Multiply your good fortune,” she said. “Be a multiplier, not a divider.”

Other speakers included Diane Wilikowfsky, chair of the art department, invocation; Steve Lisk, head of school; Clare Jackson, senior class member; and Genevieve Munson, assistant head of Upper School and English department chair, benediction.

Lancaster Country Day School is an independent, college-preparatory school, with students in preschool though 12th grades.
