Curator Nancy Bohinsky Knisley, AHS ’67: I grew up in Ambridge on Beaver Road. I attended Divine Redeemer School from K-8, then went to Ambridge High School. After graduating in 1967, I went to Penn State University Park, and only returned to Ambridge during school breaks. After college graduation, I moved to the Baltimore area and have lived there ever since. I believe that, except for my family, the most important influences in my life growing up were Ambridge’s Laughlin Memorial Library and the Ambridge Borough Swimming Pool. I still have family and friends in the Ambridge area.
