Gaudenzia Erie to Hold 13th Annual Graduation Ceremony

Request for Coverage

Erie, PA – Gaudenzia Erie, Inc. will hold our 13th Annual Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, June 15 at 2 p.m. The event will be held at the West Ballroom of the Bayfront Convention Center, which is located at 1 Sassafras Pier in Erie, PA.

The Gaudenzia Erie, Inc. graduation is an important moment of recognition for our clients and is the culmination of a very courageous journey to recovery. The ceremony represents a new beginning that many people never thought would be possible.

The men and women honored at the graduation ceremony have overcome tremendous odds, and today, they are vital, active members of their communities. In addition, they have made significant achievements in work, education and their personal relationships.

“For an individual to be a graduate, they must remain in recovery for more than a year, and this is a testament to their commitment to succeed and become a productive member of society as they embark upon their next chapter of life,” said Jason Kisielewski, Community Affairs Manager.

This year, the keynote speaker will be Erie Mayor Joseph V. Schember, who attended last year’s ceremony as a guest. Prior to becoming Mayor, Schember spent 40 years in various banking roles and was a member of Erie City Council for more than five years.
