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.”

Mud Club raises money for the Angel Network

Visitors to Emmaus High School March 17 were greeted by the aroma of soups, creating a smell similar to that of Sunday supper at grandma’s house.

The event was the eighth annual Mud Club Empty Bowls fundraiser, benefiting the food program for the Angel Network in the East Penn School District.

Attendees were invited to peruse dozens of glazed bowls created by the school’s Mud Club under the guidance of advisor Lisa Caruso.

The bowls were $20 each. In addition to the glazed bowls, this year the students crafted mugs which were $5.
