On Sept. 21, over 60 Bethlehem Area Vocational Technical School students showed up to their Bethlehem Township school with a fundraising goal in mind. The school hosted and the students assisted in the running of the school’s eighth annual Car and Bike Show, drawing in people from all over the Lehigh Valley and featuring celebrity-inspired “Autobots” from the Transformers cartoon, film and toy lines.

It was the second week of October, a week filled with exciting events for the Jaguar Community at Lehigh Valley Academy. Spirit Week is one of the biggest weeks here at LVA. It’s a way to bring students and teachers together. It’s a week of fun that involves dressing up and being able to face off with the other grades for the best dressed or the most pride.
Over 270 members and guests from the Liberty and Freedom high school classes of 1969 attended two 50th reunion events Sept. 14 and 15, at the Clubhouse Grill on Saturday and the Edge Restaurant on Sunday. Smiles and hugs were evident everywhere as long-ago classmates renewed friendships, reminisced, and brought each other up to date with their lives.
Family members: My family includes Terri (mom), Chris (dad), Alex (brother), and Austin (brother).
Favorite subject: My favorite subject has always been science. From the time I was little, I enjoyed figuring out why things do what they do and how it affects us.
As the school year kicks back into session, changes surround the Crusader campus. With longer and fewer classes a day, each student wondered what that might mean in regards to work and test load. After a confusing first week, students and teachers adapted to the schedule shift and now find it a breath of fresh air, as it allows students an extra day to complete homework and study for any up and coming tests.
Family members: Deana (mother), James (father), Jacob (brother)
Favorite subject(s): My favorite class is omparative government because international relationships and geopolitics are very interesting to me.
Activities: Co-captain of the debate team, staff writer and editor for Liberty Life (school newspaper), and Scholastic Scrimmage.
Next steps: I would like to attend a four-year university to study political science.
Career goals: In the future, I hope to go to law school in order to become a lawyer.
