    No one performed better to “Surfin’ USA” than a group of students from Pleasant Gap Elementary School. They were part of Kent’s Fest at Lock Haven University. The event featured performances by special needs students from Central Pennsylvania who organized acts based on the theme, “Fun in the sun.”

    Kent’s Fest is a Special Olympic-type event for the performing arts, where classes of students from schools in Centre, Clinton, Clearfield and Lycoming counties go on stage and give a performance that correlate with a theme. The event, held annually at Lock Haven University, was inspired by a special needs professor who died in 2001.
