Three members of the Optimist Club of Gettysburg attended the 2013 STARS Program Breakfast at the Gettysburg Area High School (GAHS) on Tuesday, January 29.  Mark Cropp, Darlene Brown and Mike Boller represented the Club at this year’s event.  The STARS Program is coordinated by Caryl Schmitz and recognizes students for their individual achievements and improvements in the areas of academics, Tech Prep and personal growth.  Each student was presented a GAHS insulated cup and was treated to breakfast.  The STARS Program is one of more than 19 youth related programs supported by the Optimist Club of Gettysburg which seeks to “Bring Out the Best in Kids.”  Student photos are available at
