Concourse Club names Cronk a Guiding Star
Each year the Concourse Club of Palmerton honors five Guiding Stars from the Palmerton Area High School. The Guiding Stars are chosen by the high school guidance staff.
A Guiding Star must be a female student in the top 25 percent of the senior class, display leadership qualities in school activities, and participate in community programs. Each Guiding Star receives an engraved Guiding Star charm, a certificate, and a $100 cash award.
