Congratulations to Lower Merion High School's Class of 2024!

Lower Merion High School held the 2024 Commencement Exercises at Villanova University’s Finneran Pavilion on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, as 438 seniors walked across the stage to receive their diplomas!

Following the procession of students, faculty and administrators, senior class officers Persephone Brooke-Lynn Johnson and Emmie Lou began the program with opening remarks, followed by classmate Danielle Gesser Sapir, who gave the Senior Class Oration.

Next, the senior class officers presented the Class Gift, which was a thousand-dollar donation to the Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund (LMTSF) and ABC House, before remarks were provided by School Board President Dr. Kerry Sautner.

Student Council officers then took the podium to announce the winner of this year's Fritz Brennan Award - math teacher Tim Presser - who graciously accepted and shared a few words with the audience.

On hand for the presentation of this year’s Sean Hughes “Character Counts” Award - established in memory of the beloved longtime LMHS principal who was killed in a car crash in November 2021 - was alumnus and inaugural recipient Leo Solga, who presented a plaque to this year's winner, senior Emily Zhang.

Remarks were then offered by Student Government President Danielle Essan, Principal Dr. Michael Johnson and Superintendent Dr. Steven M. Yanni. The program concluded with the awarding of diplomas and the tassel ceremony.
