Wessex Wire StaffCongratulations to Chris Hermosilla and the staff of the Wessex Wire.  On Monday, October 29th, at the Garden State Scholastic Press Association conference, the Wessex Wire took home the Overall Excellence Award for Division B.  This is the first place award in the state for a school of our size.  Michael Sessa (2018) won first place in Features Writing - Division B for his December story on the opioid crisis.  And Michael Sessa, Emily Johnson (2018), and Alexa Dratch (2018) won first place in Layout and Design - Division B for their editorial on the #MeToo movement and sexual assault allegations in Hollywood.

The Wire is in strong company.  Earlier this month the Roundtable received the Gold Medalist award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.  David Garcia (2018) was praised for his “descriptive, moving, and impactful depictions of the human existence and hardship in ‘An Epiphany’ and ‘Manuel, 1958’.”  Congratulations to last year's Roundtable staff and moderators, Ms Virginnia Dunphy and Mr.Tom Collins.

Congratulations to our talented students and our dedicated staff.
