"Scholastic is our own Super Bowl for the Visual Arts department," said Visual Arts Chair, Charla Gaglio. "While I am proud of all of my students, I am beside myself for these two young artists. There were only 14 cash awards given, and it is kind of cool that our school's students received two of them. Please join me in celebrating their accomplishment."
