A legacy to the stars

It was a perfect day for a finale.

On June 8, Scott Didra, retired technical education teacher at Emmaus High School, returned to campus to see the final project of his tenure at the school open with an ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Didra and his students, with contributions of time and effort by businesses from contractors to landscapers, built a working observatory on campus. The observatory houses a telescope and features a retractable roof.
