Year of Graduation
What have you done since graduating from Port Allegany High School?
I earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Pitt-Bradford. I married my high school sweetheart, Chad, and secured an internship in telecommunications that led to a career for the past 18 years. I presently work for CenturyLink, the third largest United States communications provider in more than 60 countries. My office is in Coudersport, and I am responsible for business communications and employee engagement.
Operating heavy equipment after high school, my husband’s interest directed us to start our business, C. Moses Excavating, fourteen years ago specializing in road building, road maintenance, and land clearing.
Chad and I have three children: Carter (14), Blaine (13), and Ella (11). Baptized together last fall, we are active members of the Chestnut Street Baptist Church in Port Allegany.
In 2014, we began a “do-it-yourself” log home build. Friends and family helped at various stages, and our children learned the value of hard work.

What is your fondest memory of Port Allegany High School?
My fondest memories include Saturday football games, Channel One morning news, working in the principal’s office, donkey basketball, pep assemblies, homecoming spirit week and parade, showcase music weekend, sports practices, eating dinner with teammates before a game, gym class archery, and serving Fox’s Pizza to every family in town.
Thank you for the nomination of alumni of the month. It is nice to be where everyone knows my name. Port Allegany remains a place with small town hospitality, a place to stay easily informed, and a place with many opportunities to lend a hand. This is my home! God bless.
