(MHS) will celebrate commencement at 6:30 p.m. next Tuesday, June 19, graduating about 330 seniors.
All this week, Moorestown Patch will provide short profiles of a group of graduates: where they're attending college, their fondest memory from MHS and what they'll miss most (and least) about being high school students.
Name: Allie Smith

College: Duquesne University
Intended Major(s): Occupational Therapy — Master's Program, with Psychology Minor

Fondest Memory from High School: . This season, we went in with not many expectations at all. But we ended up winning out our league with a very good record (16-4-2) and we surprisingly made it all the way to the state championship. That was a big run for us.
Most Important Thing You Learned at High School: Self-confidence through doing student government. Doing that, I’ve had to speak at events and interact with whoever came, like veterans and guest speakers. That definitely helped me, my social skills with new people. The way I carry myself.
What You’ll Miss Most: I’ll definitely miss my friends the most out of everything. But specifically from the school, I’ll probably miss the panzarottis for lunch. They’re kind of like a pizza flipped inside-out.
What You’ll Miss Least: Having to come to school Monday through Friday, from 7:30 in the morning to 2 o’clock in the afternoon. It sounds better waking up later and not being there for a straight seven hours (in college).
