Catasauqua High School teacher Edward Whitehead recently discovered he is not alone in his battle against cancer.

In May, CHS student council officers turned their concern for another into action by holding a book fair in honor of Whitehead.

Student council officers felt the book fair, held at the Barnes & Noble bookstore at the Lehigh Valley Mall, was necessary to support their English teacher, who recently was diagnosed with cancer.

The rain outdoors did not put a damper on the spirits of the 29 graduates of the Lehigh Valley Christian High School during the Class of 2013 commencement ceremony held June 7 at Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship Church, Allentown.

The graduation began with the slow toll of a bell and the graduates proudly proceeding down the middle of the church aisle, two by two, the young men adorned in black caps and gowns and young women in red.

Class President Emily Barry welcomed the graduates, staff members of LVCHS and family and friends to the graduation.
