PUNXSUTAWNEY â Everybody makes mistakes â even people who are the valedictorians of their classes and go on to become medical professionals.
Dr. Frank Bizousky pointed out a few missteps in his school career as the guest speaker for the PAHS Class of 2012âs commencement exercises Friday night, but by and large, he said, things work out when one makes amends.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â âWhat is education?â was the question asked by state Rep. Sam Smith, the speaker for the Punxsutawney Christian Schoolâs 2012 commencement, which was held Friday at the First United Methodist Church.
PCSâ three graduates were Caleb Thomas Fugate, Lindsey Ann Reed and Jesse Michael Venturini.
Smith cited several definitions for education: âRonald Reagan said, âEducation is not the means of showing people how to get what they want. Education is an exercise by means of which enough men, it is hoped, will learn to want what is worth having.â
