Several PALCS University Scholars students have envisioned a better world and have been working in various ways to help others. We are very proud of the following students and their efforts.
Julia Zane, PALCS student and up-and-coming country singer, has been keeping very busy this summer with weekly performances around the tri-states area. She is even hosting her very first Open Mic Benefit, raising funds for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) on Saturday, July 22nd from 3 pm - 7 pm at the Red Iron Pub in the Crimson Lounge located in Springfield, PA.
Our students here at PALCS amaze us every day, with their dedication, motivation and compassion. Danielle Guth, PALCS 12th grader, is a prime example. As Danielle’s senior year is winding down, there seems to be no slowdown in sight for this bright young woman who be attending Immaculata University next fall.
It truly is the “season of giving,” which is why for the 6th year in a row, members of PALCS staff have sponsored children in need for a Christmas gift drive called the "Angel Tree" for the Delaware Valley Children's Charity (DVCC). 16 PALCS teachers took on sponsorships this year. 3 of those teachers coordinated donations for entire departments within the school. Members of the Guidance Department, Student Services Department, and Child Accounting Department have all sponsored one or more children as a team.
Sydney Kopnitsky, PALCS junior from Punxsutawney, has credited PALCS to making it possible for her to pursue her passion for fostering cats from all over the area and giving them a second chance.
PALCS Brick and Click, the Eagle’s View Learning Center, participated in a Walk for the Cure in November. The students, their families and community members collectively raised money for Birdie’s Closet at the Indiana Hospital, a project which offers supplies to help patients cope with appearance-related side effects of cancer treatments.
