Bishop Feehan High School announced that two students received recognition in the 2010 National Scholastic Art & Writing Awards sponsored by the the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. Junior Zachary Hurley of Foxboro received a National Gold Key award, the most prestigious award, for his hand-drawn self portrait. Senior Jill Lynch of Mansfield won a National Silver Key for her short story entitled Fear. Hurley, Lynch and their teachers will be honored at the National Celebration in New York City at Carnegie Hall on June 9. Bishop Feehan has had only 2 other National winners in the school’s history (David Benedetti ’98 of S. Attleboro and Kristin Ettensohn ’01 of Cumberland).
