The force behind the mascot at Emmaus High School

Thursday, April 12, 2018 by BEVERLY SPRINGER in School

“I saw an ad [for the student mascot] on Twitter and I began emailing Mr. Zimmerman...,” Zach, who is identified as being high functioning autistic, explained.

EHS has now gained an enthusiastic mascot and Zach has found a niche.

Encouraged by his parents, Jen and Chris Conner, to become involved in school activities, Zach applied for and obtained the position of mascot on his own. His mother first learned of her son’s new endeavor when the assistant athletic director contacted her. She quoted Zimmerman as saying, “We think he’d be a perfect fit.”
