HARRISBURG – Three students from the Union County area are part of the Commonwealth Charter Academy Class of 2016.
Commonwealth Charter Academy (CCA), a public cyber charter school serving more than 9,000 students statewide, held four graduation ceremonies for its graduates across Pennsylvania.
The 2016 graduates comprise the last class to graduate as “Commonwealth Connections Academy” students. In February, the school announced that it is changing its name to Commonwealth Charter Academy.
The event was live streamed so family and friends who could not attend the ceremony could view the graduation.
In his remarks, Dr. Maurice “Reese” Flurie, CEO of Commonwealth Charter Academy, challenged the graduates to become engaged citizens and to strive to make their communities better places to live.
“We need this generation to be a generation that looks to do good things for others and do so with kindness and compassion,” Flurie said. “Do not confuse compassion and kindness with weakness. Some of the strongest and toughest people are kind and gentle.”
The following students from Union County are part of the graduating class:
• Alissa Combs
• Zane Greaser
• McKenzie Miller
