PHS grad's journey from fatigues to cap and gown

Pottstown High School 2003 grad Henry Wells recently graduated from Saint Joseph University with a degree in Organizational Development and Leadership. 

Along the way while working full time, being married, raising a family he attained the rank of Sr Chief Petty Officer in the Navy Reserves. When asked to share some words with our students he said, always remember where you came from. 

Growing up in Pottstown taught me to be tough and follow through on my word. I told teachers and administrators in 2003, that I would graduate from college. My journey took me on an interesting path, but I arrived at the goal just the same. Setting strategic goals has helped me identify where I wanted to go and what goals I needed to achieve. Block out distractions if you need to change direction, that's fine as long as you keep working towards the goal. 

Proud to say I am from Pottstown.
