Upcoming Perrysburg High School graduation ceremony special to principal

BY MATT THOMPSON
BLADE STAFF WRITER

This will be the ninth graduation ceremony at Perrysburg High School for Principal Michael Short, but it will be more special to him than any other.

His son, Patrick Short, will be receiving a diploma from his dad when he walks across the stage. 

"It will be special for me to have my dad hand me the diploma," the young Short said. 

The graduation will be at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Stranahan Theater in Toledo. There will be 343 graduates, nine less graduates than last year.

Mr. Short said that, in general, it is a very special class to him because he saw them grow up through his son's friends and having them at his house. 

"One thing about this class is it is a really kind group of kids," he said. "They really are good to each other and supportive."

There will be three student speakers Sunday before Superintendent Tom Hosler and Mr. Short speak. The valedictorian for this class, John Gadient, will speak as well as salutatorian Ryan Peiffer and class president Annie Rutherford.

"John and Ryan are both quiet, humble dedicated students," Mr. Short said. "Annie is a character. She is funny, bubbly, outgoing and has a lot of leadership."

The young Gadient is not the first valedictorian in his family. His brother Joe Gadient was four years ago, and he went to Notre Dame. Now, John Gadient plans to attend college there too.

Mr. Hosler said this graduation class academically is one of the highest Perrysburg has had in terms of scholarships and ACT scores, and also in sports. 

"[Graduation] is what it is all about, the capstone on everything we do as a district," he said. "It is bittersweet with each class because they have their own personality and you want to see them go, but selfishly you want to keep them."

The young Short is planning to attend the University of Cincinnati.

"The past two years I was at Penta [Career Center], but I have a strong tie to Perrysburg," he said. "You want the [graduation] moment, but you don't want it to be done."
