Claire Hurley Receives CAS Heart of the Arts Award
Senior Claire Hurley is this year’s recipient of the Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS) “Heart of the Arts” award. The award recognizes a student, adult, or group associated with a school’s arts program who has demonstrated exemplary ‘heart’ – i.e., integrity, citizenship, good character – in the chosen activity.
Claire will now be considered for the National Heart of the Arts award. CAS Director of Student Activities Cherese Miller-Odukwe said Claire was selected as the winner because of her artistic and service accomplishments.
“There is no question that you, Claire, have demonstrated exemplary ‘heart’ in numerous ways,” she said in the acceptance letter to Claire. “Furthermore, your academic standing, service, and positive character traits more than exceed the award’s expectations.”
Claire will be honored at a Virtual CAS Awards ceremony this spring.
