Catasauqua High School and Lehigh Career & Technical Institute student Dylan Gino was recently elected to serve on the Distributive Education Clubs of America state executive council.
Being elected to the council, Dylan said, was an overwhelming experience.
“When they announced my name I couldn’t believe it, as tears were running down my face,” he said. “I went over to my adviser [Cydnee Barkley] to hug her and thank her for helping me make this all possible,” he said. “It felt so good to have put all my time and effort into this campaign and for it to pay off.”
Last week’s winter storm Stella shut down schools in the Catasauqua Area School District Tuesday through Thursday.

District Superintendent Robert Spengler told The Press, as of last Thursday, the district has used four snow days, with two snow days built in.
Spengler said March 17 he conducted a review and verification to determine if the district has enough instructional minutes to compensate for the two snow days built in.
