Fighting pediatric cancer ... together

Thursday, January 4, 2018 by The Press in School

EHS

Students from Freedom High School and Emmaus High School teamed up recently to help raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. Both student sections observed “gold-outs” to support the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley. FHS and EHS both sold the “gold-out” shirts in school, as this is the main way to obtain donations and participate in this event. PCFLV helps cover all of the medical expenses for kids with cancer in the Lehigh Valley who are registered with them and also have fun little events for the kids throughout the year.

Alex Comfort

Q. In what grade are you currently enrolled?

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

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject would have to be history. I’m really interested in history for many reasons, but mainly because of what it reveals about people in general. History provides a record of both successes and failures for people to triumph and overcome. Without learning from history, people are doomed to repeat the failures of the past. So, all the lessons history provides truly makes it the most valuable, and my favorite subject.
