Click Here for Streaming Information

Warren G. Harding High School’s 2020 Commencement will be shown on the big screen at Elm Road Drive-In at 9 p.m. Thursday, May 21, with gates opening at 8 p.m.

This event is by invitation only and closed to the general public. Each graduate will be allowed entrance of one vehicle.

The time was selected in coordination with the drive-in, as the screening could only happen after dusk. The recording features members of the WGH Class of 2020 who were recorded May 13 and 14 walking across the stage at Harding while wearing their graduation caps and gowns. The two-day program for students and parents was held in compliance with the state’s social distancing guidelines.

The recording also includes remarks by U.S Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Howland, Warren Mayor Doug Franklin, Warren City Schools Superintendent Steve Chiaro Warren School Board of Education President Patricia Limperos, and Harding Principal Dante Capers.

Additionally, a number of WGH alumni have made musical contributions including Sean Jones, Dana Morgan, Dennis Drummond, and a “virtual” alumni choir made up of Madrigal Singers from graduating classes spanning over 20 years.

The ceremony will be streamed simultaneously online at  youtube.com/wscntv , as well as the WFMJ website in partnership with DRUND. Starting at 9 p.m. Thursday, May 21, the ceremony via YouTube and WFMJ can be viewed on most internet enabled devices. Although the YouTube app is not necessary, it would improve the experience for viewers. The commencement will remain posted to each website after the May 21 streaming.

The screening is not open to the general public. Each student who participated in the recording received one ticket for a vehicle to be admitted to the showing. However, as many family members as can safely be accommodated by the vehicle may attend. The drive-in event is open only to those students issued admission tickets. Guests will be permitted to bring their own refreshments.

Warren City School’s Welcomes New Boys Basketball Coach

A Warren G. Harding High School alumnus has been named the new head boys
varsity basketball coach.

The Warren City School Board of Education hired Warren City School Class of 1995 graduate Gabe Bubon Tuesday night.

Bubon has worked in higher education 13 years. He served as interim head coach of the men’s basketball team at Point Park University in Pittsburgh (October 2016-June 2017) before stepping into the head coaching position there in July 2017.

Previously, he was Point Park’s assistant head basketball coach of the men’s team; head coach of men’s and women’s golf; and community director of campus life. Prior to working at Point Park, Bubon was sports counselor for the Allegheny County Parks Department.

Bubon replaces Andy Vlajkovich, who last month announced he planned to accept a position at Canton McKinley High School.

“Gabe’s hiring provides our district with an individual who is familiar with our community, understands the tradition and expectations of Warren G. Harding basketball and has demonstrated the ability to be a leader of young men, both academically and athletically,” said William Nicholson, Warren City Schools Athletic Director.

Bubon said he is “extremely excited” to be given the opportunity to return to his hometown as
head boys basketball coach at Warren G Harding.

“The City of Warren played a major role in making me the person I am today. After 13 years of coaching at the college ranks, I feel it is time for me to return to the city of Warren and help develop the young men of Warren on and off the basketball court,”
Coach, Gabe Bubon

“After coming in and meeting with Athletic Director Nicholson and Principal Dante Capers, I have no doubt that this is the right move for me and the Warren G. Harding Basketball Program. I want to build on what has been decades of tradition and pride in Warren  Basketball. I couldn’t be happier to have this opportunity.”
