Year of Graduation


What have you done since graduating from Port Allegany High School?

After graduation, I attended Clarion University where I earned a bachelor’s degree in sports management. 

Upon graduation, I was hired by Potter County Probation where I am currently employed as a probation officer, court coordinator, and fire arms instructor. I still have a passion for athletics and currently coach 9th grade basketball for Saint Mary’s Area High School. 

In August of 2016, I married my wife Kelsey who is currently employed at Bradford Regional Medical Center. In the same year we bought a home in Saint Mary’s, Pennsylvania and enjoy hunting, fishing, and spending time with our family and friends.

Where do you currently live?

Saint Mary's, Pennsylvania

Who was your favorite teacher in high school? Why were they your favorite?

It is difficult to have just one favorite teacher, as I believe all the teachers throughout my education have been very beneficial. My sister (Mrs. Toncha Barber) is a teacher at the Port Allegany Elementary School and it has allowed me to have a better understanding of the challenges and rewards of teaching.  
I cannot thank all the teachers past, present, and future enough for what they do.

What is your fondest memory of Port Allegany High School?

It is almost impossible to narrow it down to one memory, but the one thing about high school that I truly enjoyed were the friends, teachers, and activities that I got to participate in, and that has and always will play a major role in my life.
