As they prepped for their winter break, Liberty students took part in a wide variety of the annual holiday traditions at school. These traditions, which have grounded the Liberty community for many years, are not only exciting, but also bring friends and family together again.
Every year, Liberty’s orchestra and chorus groups hold their holiday concert for the community. The tradition, dating back decades, is a joyful event that many students, faculty and alumni attend.
The holiday season has come and gone, and soon it will be replaced by the dreary days of winter. But that does not mean that the activity at Freedom is slowing down anytime soon.
Back in the fall, Freedom’s impressive football team made headlines throughout the Lehigh Valley. The Patriots ultimately fell to the eventual state champion, St. Joseph’s Prep, but the team captured its first District XI Championship title and finished the season with a 12-2 record, capping off the best showing in school history.
