With me being a high school senior this year, this will be my last column I write for the East Penn Press. My plans include enlisting in the U.S. Air Force working in a job that deals with planes. When I get out of the Air Force, the long-term goal is to be an air traffic controller with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Editor’s Note: Thank you Nicholas for your thorough reporting of Emmaus High School events and keeping everyone informed. Best of luck in the U.S. Air Force and in all your future endeavors.
