Congressman Charlie Dent, R-15th, held his 12th annual send-off reception recently at his 3900 Hamilton Blvd. office in Allentown for high school students from his district who will attend one of the United States Service Academies this fall.
Andrew Posch, of Bethlehem Catholic High School, Reilly McGinnis, of Emmaus High School, Tyler Herber, of Hamburg High School, Jayden Demmy, of Cedar Cliff High School, and Karl Van Blargan, of Hershey High School are going to the United States Military Academy at West Point in New York.
Hopes and dreams run high for a diverse group of students at the prestigious High School for the Performing Arts in New York City in the musical “Fame Jr.”
Stagemakers at the J will perform “Fame Jr.” May 18 and 21 at the Jewish Community Center of the Lehigh Valley, Allentown and May 28 at the Temple Covenant of Peace, Easton.
Based on the book by Jose Fernandez with music by Steve Margoshes, and lyrics by Jacques Levy, “Fame Jr.” explores issues confronting many young people today.
