EHS Student Honored

Eastchester High School 11th grade student Olivia Bishop was selected as the recipient of the American Voices Medal, one of the highest regional honors presented by the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Only one writer from each region is presented with this award each year.  Olivia is the winner of the Hudson-to-Housatonic region, which received 2,009 entries. Winners will be honored June 7 at a ceremony at Carnegie Hall

Their web site notes, “Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation’s youth, and provided opportunities for creative teens to be celebrated.”
