Pottstown Seniors 'Upward Bound' Thanks to MCCC

Blogger's Note: Last night was Pottstown High School's baccalaureate and my son Dylan is the salutatorian. I am, therefore, taking the rare opportunity to participate in an event as a parent, instead of covering it as a reporter.

So if you're wondering why there were no Tweets from last night's borough council meeting and no blog post today, that's why.

Also, tonight is the high school graduation, so again, forgive the absence of coverage. I was enjoying it instead.

Nevertheless, I want to give the class of 2017 their due, particularly as the students I have met from that class are a great bunch of kids. So here is yet another accomplishment to add to their list. Thanks to John Armato for providing it. 

Congratulations to Pottstown High School Seniors who completed the Montgomery County Community College Upward Bound program.

Upward Bound is a college readiness program that helps prepare students for the challenges of college.

All of the students have been accepted at multiple post secondary schools.

We wish them the best of luck in the future. They are another reason we say Proud to be from Pottstown.
