Ninth graders to introduce Distinguished Alumni at assembly

At 9:30 a.m. this homecoming Friday, October 20, 2006 four ninth graders from Tyrone’s Academy English class, taught by Richard Merryman, will introduce alumni at the Fifth Annual Distinguished Graduates Homecoming Assembly in the Tyrone High auditorium.
The school band, under the direction of Aaron Patterson, will open this fifth alumni assembly with two rousing selections. After the band performance, Catherine Young will direct the choirs in the National Anthem and in a song entitled “Like An Eagle”. Quite appropriately, the choir will dedicate that repertoire to the alumni, the school, and to the school namesake or mascot, the Golden Eagle.
Tyrone High School principal Rebecca Erb will set the scene for this 9:30 a.m. alumni homecoming assembly with her opening remarks. Then the four Academy ninth graders will introduce the honored homecoming guests: prison chaplain Monsignor Richard Walsh; Navy captain Donald Barrett; psychologist Dr. Larry Nulton and electronic specialist Gary McGovern.
Cary Simpson and Tyrone radio station WTRN graciously have consented to broadcast this fifth annual homecoming assembly from 9:30 to 10:40 a.m. this Friday. This special broadcast will necessitate that The Daily WTRN news be delayed for about 90 minutes this Friday.
The Tyrone Area School District expresses profound appreciation to radio station WTRN and to The Daily Herald for offering spoken and printed coverage of Friday’s alumni homecoming assembly. Thanks to the local media, everyone in this community can join the auditorium audience to hear about four distinguished graduates who, to paraphrase the words of the school Alma Mater, “Have loved and remained loyal to dear old Tyrone High”.
