Congratulations to Mr. Vezza’s Grade 8 English honors class

Essays created by Grade 8 English honors students at Warwick Valley Middle School (WVMS) were part of the Empire State 2018 Dr. King Fine Arts and Essays Exhibit, Jan. 8-Feb. 28. WVMS’s contribution was recognized with a certificate of appreciation from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Proudly displayed on the concourse of the Empire State Plaza, the essays submitted by Elio Vezza’s English honors students were a source of inspiration to the thousands of visitors commemorating Black History Month and the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Your creative work is a meaningful commentary on the life of a visionary leader and civil rights advocate who understood the importance of education in the lives of our youth,” Governor Cuomo said in his words of appreciation to participating students.
