Junior Pin Ceremony

Students will be presented with their official Class Pin and hear from a variety of inspirational guest speakers chosen by the Class of 2024. Students are reminded that when they feel unmotivated or weary in the remainder of their Allegheny experience, they need only to look to this pin as a reminder of how far they have come.
