Celebrating Stories

We celebrated the stories of alumni Janelle Zook '02 Cunalata, Carl Stauffer '82, and Ethan Zook '72 in chapel and at a Saturday breakfast with families and classmates. Watch the chapel here.

The return to EMS with her young family was a first since graduating for music educator and composer, Janelle, whose journey has taken her to Penn State, the University of Oregon, Venezuela, and now Pennsylvania.

"It is so good to see the school continue in the same attitude of service and joy for learning as a welcoming community for all as it has since its inception," she reflected after the weekend.
