Edison Student Honored In National Arts & Writing Competition

BASKING RIDGE — Athena Gerasoulis, an eighth grader from Edison, is one of nine Pingry students who won regional art and writing awards in the 2013 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, the country’s longest-running, most prestigious scholarship and recognition program for student achievements in the visual and literary arts, now in its 90th year.
