The Connecticut Association of Schools hosted its 27th annual high school arts awards banquet at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville April 5.
Each spring, CAS honors two seniors from each member high school who excel in the performing or visual arts, and who possess qualities of scholarship and leadership.
This year, Juliana DeAngelo and Salvator Woyciesjes were the North Haven High School students deemed most worthy of the recognition.
Plaques were distributed to all the artists at last week’s banquet. FOX61 Morning News anchor Tim Lammers was the master of ceremonies.
“The arts matter, and there is never a time that the arts don't matter,” Lammers told the crowd. “Congratulations for everything you have done. You are making Connecticut proud.”
Kim King, 2022 Connecticut State Teacher of the Year, was the keynote speaker. King teaches art at Annie E. Vinton Elementary School and Southeast Elementary School in Mansfield.
