CTASD Alumni

For the past 75 years, we have been educating students who’ve used the skills they learned at CTASD to succeed in life. We are proud of our graduates and want to extend an invitation to them to reconnect with former classmates, network with current and retired professionals, and influence the next generation coming out of Conemaugh.

Each month we will showcase the successes of our alumni by highlighting a different graduate or graduating class. While success looks different in different situations, we want to create an opportunity to acknowledge the thread that ties them all together.

Alumni Highlight

Olivia Rae Felton high school yearbook photoOlivia Rae Felton graduated from Conemaugh Township in 2010. After graduating high school, she attended Clarion University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2010. Miss Felton graduated in May of 2014 with her B.S. Degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. She then began her master’s program at Clarion University of Pennsylvania. For Olivia’s schooling, she is currently enrolled in a required externship. She is at Somerseta twenty-two week externship hospital until October 16, and will begin her school placement at Windber Elementary.

Since graduating from high school, Olivia has found a love for traveling and running. She is currently training for her third half marathon. Olivia enjoys staying busy, as she was in many activities during her time at Clarion including being the president of one of her major related groups. When asked about how her activities affect her, Olivia responded with “Being involved has helped me grow as a person and opened many doors for other opportunities. It also allows me to meet many people and create many friendships.”

Olivia after finishing a raceOlivia currently resides in Davidsville, PA until she completes her schooling. She plans on moving elsewhere to experience a new area. “That is why I chose the field,” stated Olivia.

During high school Olivia had two favorite teachers: Mr. Kusher and Ms. Pepoy. She enjoyed Mr. Kusher’s teaching because of his sense of humor. It kept her interested, and always provided a very comfortable atmosphere for his students to grow and learn. As for Ms. Pepoy, she was more than a teacher for Olivia—she was like a second mom. Every time Olivia sees her, Peeps gives her a big hug and always has a big warm smile on her face.

During high school, Olivia made a lot of memories, but the ones that stick with her the most are her soccer days. There will always be a part of her that misses being on a small town sports team. She made many friendships, enjoyed games under the lights, and remembers every last sweat and tears she put into being the best she could be. “Those are the memories that will never be forgotten,” Olivia stated.
