2022 PHAA Graduation Ceremony
Monday June 6
In 2020 and 2021 we held our graduation ceremony virtually. This year we will hold it in-person at the Bongiorno Conference Center in Carlisle on Monday, June 6. The ceremony will start with a sit-down supper at 5:30pm in the Bongiorno Center's Dining Room. The ceremony itself will begin in its Pennsylvania Room at 7pm. After the ceremony, there will be accommodations available for people who wish to stay overnight in the center's hotel rooms.
The Bongiorno Center is centrally located for Pennsylvania: about 30 minutes from Harrisburg, 2 hours from Philadelphia and 3 hours from Pittsburgh. There are two alternative options:
- Dinner plus Ceremony. The cost is $25 per person. [Note: From April 25 to May 23 there will be a link on this page that you can use to post your dietary restrictions.]
- Ceremony only. The cost is $5 per person.
Overnight Accommodations. The cost is $25 per person for optional overnight accommodations at the Bongiorno Center after the ceremony. Reservations can be made on a separate page in this store.
All students who participate will have to post a 50-100 word biography of themselves by June 1 for inclusion in the ceremony program. Optional: You can perform a 5 minute performance or give a 5 minute speech at the ceremony. Normally, every graduate who offers to perform or give a speech is included in the program. Click here to post your biography and info about your optional performance or speech by June 1. Last year's virtual ceremony was a great success. You can watch it on YouTube to see approximately how this year's ceremony will be organized. By the way, we also plan to put this year's ceremony up on YouTube exactly one week later.
Note: Deadline for registration is June 1. Seats at the Bongiorno Center are limited, so we will cut off further registrations earlier if we run out. Don't delay. Register now!
