Graduates of Distinction
     The Lehighton Education and Athletic Foundation is proud to announce the establishment of a Lehighton Area High School Graduates of Distinction Wall of Honor. The program is designed to recognize notable Alumni of the Lehighton Area School District who have brought honor to their Alma Mater. The nominating committee will be searching for graduates who have made admirable contributions to society or who have achieved notable success in their occupations. Graduates of Distinction honorees serve as role models for Lehighton students and as symbols of high caliber of students produced by the District. In addition to paying tribute to our Alumni, our hope is to stimulate pride for our Schools in our students and the community.
