Military Commitment Ceremony goes on tour

The annu­al Military Commitment Ceremony at Neshaminy High School was moved online this year with a video con­tain­ing pre-recorded speech­es and a read­ing of names to hon­or ten stu­dents who will be serv­ing our coun­try fol­low­ing grad­u­a­tion. Speakers includ­ed Neshaminy High School Principal Ryan Staub, Assistant Principal Tom Magdelinskas, District Director of Secondary Education Dr. Rob McGee and spe­cial guest PA Rep. Frank Farry.

On Thursday, May 21, a school bus tour vis­it­ed the homes of each of the hon­orees to deliv­er a pack­age of cer­tifi­cates from the PA House of Representatives and Senate along with an American flag, bal­loons and flow­ers. This was deliv­ered to the stu­dents and their fam­i­lies by a small group of admin­is­tra­tors, includ­ing the cer­e­mo­ny speak­ers, in a socially-distanced series of pre­sen­ta­tions that were record­ed and added to the cer­e­mo­ny video.

The bus was escort­ed by a police vehi­cle from the Middletown Township Police Department and a fire util­i­ty vehi­cle from the Langhorne-Middletown Fire Department.

The stu­dents hon­ored this year are: Ryan Jagaczewski (United States Army); Alexis Krippel (United States Air Force); Nikolas Noel (United States Navy); Hunter Riddel (United States Navy); Daniel Sinagoga (United States Navy); Nathan Day (United States Army National Guard); Nathaniel Reid (United States Marines); Gage Silk (United States Marines); John Toy (United States Marines) and Michael Vasger (United States Marines).
