The 51 Penn Center Academy seniors who were scheduled to receive their diplomas during commencement ceremonies at Temple University's Mitten Hall last night closed out more than their high school careers. They were the final graduates of a private junior and senior high school whose roots stretch back to the founding of Temple University in 1884, when the academy was known as Temple University High School. For the last 20 years the school was operated by the YMCA of Philadelphia and Vicinity at the Y's Center City branch on Arch Street near 15th.

Mary Richards Hamill, 55, one of the first three women appointed to the 12-member New Jersey Tax Court, died of cancer Tuesday at her home in Lawrenceville, Mercer County. Judge Hamill, who served until her death, and two other women were named to the Tax Court by Gov. Florio in March 1993. The court hears appeals of rulings by county boards of taxation and the director of the state Division of Taxation on income, sales and business taxes. From 1980 until 1993, she was a deputy attorney general for state-tax litigation in the Attorney General's Office Division of Law. She was the chief of the financial section of that division from 1990 to 1993.

Inside YSC Academy, where one might expect to find a classroom, a replica of Allianz Arena, the home of Bayern Munich, towers over the students as they stroll through the lobby. Emblazoned on each set of lockers is an age-old question that many grown men - let alone high school students - have yet to answer: What do you stand for? For Philadelphia Union part-owner and YSC Sports founder Rich Graham, who, along with Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz, spearheaded the establishment of what is billed as the nation's first developmental soccer school to be directly affiliated with an MLS club, the answer to that question has little to do with creating a pipeline of talent to PPL Park.

Fifty-two years ago, Mylas Martin left the rolling dells of Pine Forge equipped with a superior education and a ferocious sense of destiny. He returned last week to the campus of the Pine Forge Academy near Pottstown, where he has become something of a symbol, to speak to the students about duty and diligence and faith and to help welcome the Rev. Charles Leo Cheatham. Mr. Cheatham was recently elected president of the Allegheny East Conference of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, and he will lead the 27,000-member organization from an office on the academy campus.

John McGee, the incoming headmaster of St. Mary's Hall-Doane Academy, has a novel alternative to the morning commute. He plans to give students their first glimpse of the new boss as he arrives for the first day of school in a canoe. "I'm just going to paddle up the Delaware like the Indians did," he said.

Dave Mullan was scheduled to run in the Boston Marathon in 1988, but he developed salmonella poisoning just before the race. He already had his plane fare, so he ran against doctor's orders, and got sick. When he became ill, he was the leading American runner and was on a very good 2-hour, 16-minute pace. He walked the final four miles and finished in 2:40. On Nov. 10, in a race at Columbus, Ohio, he suffered from hypothermia, collapsing 10 yards from the finish line. The temperature was 26 degrees when the race started.

Maureece Rice left behind a pair of stylish Timberland boots, a blue suit jacket, and what he had hoped would be a springboard to a bright basketball future. He said few good-byes, departed North Carolina on a mild Sunday in October, and caught a 1 a.m. train for Philadelphia. He never looked back. Rice, who as a senior last season at Strawberry Mansion High broke the boys' Philadelphia scoring record set nearly 50 years ago by Overbrook legend Wilt Chamberlain, was coming home.

Grant's small classroom was darkened - the better to see gray screens. The teacher was giving a lesson in the use of special geometry software; geometry instruction would come later.
