Just freshmen when the pandemic forced schools to find alternate ways of instructing students, the highly decorated Bethlehem High School Class of ’23 received their diplomas at Sunday’s commencement exercises at the J. Dan Talbott Amphitheatre.

“It’s a real honor to be a part of such a decorated class and of all the awards we have all gathered,” co-valedictorian Drew Dawson said. “I’m very appreciative of all my classmates of everything they’ve done and everything they’re going to do in the future.”
