A Palmerton Area High School student who was seriously injured in a car crash in January continues to make strides in her recovery.
Beth Brong, the mother of 10th-grade student Emily Brong, used Tuesday's school board meeting as a platform to thank the school district, and community as a whole, for its support of her daughter.
Emily, a sophomore, has been hospitalized after she was involved in a crash on Jan. 19 in Franklin Township.
"You don't understand how our lives have changed since," Brong said. "The outpouring of support is just phenomenal."
