STUDENT OF THE WEEK

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 by BEVERLY SPRINGER in School

Kathryn DeJohn

Q. In what grade are you currently enrolled?

A. I am currently in 12th grade at Emmaus High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject is French. I have always found learning new words and phrases fascinating, which led my family to host a French exchange student two summers ago. I was lucky enough to be able to visit our student the next summer as an American exchange student in France. The trip only heightened my interest in the language and I hope to be able to live there one day so I can really put my knowledge to use.

The impending marriage of a Broadway star to a tycoon snowballs into series of comedic and confusing misadventures.
