Eighth Grade Center Celebrates National Award

Administrators unveiled a new sign for the front of the school.

Spring-Ford's Eighth Grade Center celebrated its 2012 National Blue Ribbon award with an assembly and a sign unveiling on Thursday afternoon at the school.

Several local dignitaries were in attendance, including State Representatives Thomas Quigley (R-146) and Tim Hennessey (R-26) and State Senator John Rafferty (R-44). Members of the school board also attended. 

Congressman Pat Meehan (PA-07) sent a letter, and Quigley and Hennessey brought greetings from State Representative Mike Vereb (R-150). 

Spring-Ford Alumni Mike McCoy also spoke. McCoy is currently a senior at LaSalle University and said he credits the education he got at Spring-Ford, from the eighth grade on up, to his success as a student sports broadcaster. 

Student representatives from each class talked about hard work, accountability and success. 

Following the assembly, Superintendent Dr. David Goodin and prinicpal Michael Siggins revealed the new eighth grade center sign, which tells everyone who passes by that this school has done something of which they can be very proud.
