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

Portrait of Laryssa StahlLaryssa Stahl is a graduate from Conemaugh Township Area Middle School/High School class of 2010. After graduation, Laryssa attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and studied abroad for five months in London, England. While Laryssa attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, she acquired her associates degree in fashion merchandising management, and she also earned a bachelor’s degree in advertising and marketing communications. “FIT prepared me for my professional career,” said Laryssa. Laryssa is currently a social media specialist for Overstock.com in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

Her fondest memories of Conemaugh Township would have to be the high school highlights. The times like cheering for football games, school dances, throwing discus for the track team, and pep rallies. “I love that I’ve come from such a spirited school where the students and community show support no matter what,” said Stahl.

Laryssa remembers the time Mrs. Keifer chaperoned her and a group of other students in Italy for two weeks. “The amount of time and effort she put into the trip made me appreciate her so much more as a person.” Also Laryssa enjoyed Mrs. Kimmel, the librarian, because of her down-to-earth personality and because Laryssa knew she could go to Mrs. Kimmel on advice for anything. “I am thankful to have had teachers that were not only just that, but friends as well.”
