EDISON — The Martin Luther King Jr. Essay Contest winners from The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison were recently treated to a Sunday afternoon matinee performance of “The Mountaintop,” a powerful off-Broadway play starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett in New York City. One of the show’s producers is Ted Snowdon, a 1965 graduate of the school.
Contest winners James Nolan of Colonia, Briana Crawley of Rahway and Neema Liverpool of Plainfield accompanied Andrew Webster, Head of School, to the show. Students submitted essays on the effect Martin Luther King Jr. has had on their life and how Dr. King has influenced them.
Honorable mention winners Emily Saadi of Edison, Rida Aziz of Scotch Plains, Anastasia Bellisari of Plainfield, Marcel Green of North Plainfield, Randolph Best of Somerset and Caroline McNamara of Westfield received $10 Dunkin Donuts gift cards as their prize.
