     A. A special award was created in honor of former Builders Club Member Zach Kraus.
         Mrs. K had the privilege to speak about Zach and the incredible impact he had with everyone he
         encountered. Zach was a giver and wanted to help others in need, even though he had his own
         health complications (to say the least.) He truly was a role model and an inspiration!
         To be able to keep his legacy alive, we are extremely grateful to TeenWorks of the Greater
         Lehigh Valley for making this award possible.
         1. The recipient of  first Annual Zach Kraus Award was former Builders Club Member &
             Parkland Senior, Dana Emswiler. Dana is a very worthy young lady who is also making great 
             things happen in the community. Congratulations Dana!
