The Convent of the Sacred Heart recently became literary royalty after being presented with one of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s top awards — the Silver Crown — for outstanding student work on the Upper School literary magazine, Perspectives.

The Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) announced its top awards for scholastic publications at the 89th annual Scholastic Convention on March 22. Edmund J. Sullivan, CSPA executive director, presented the Silver Crown Award to William Mottolese, chair of the English Department at Convent of the Sacred Heart.

CSPA selected Perspectives for a top national award from among entries that included 1,344 high school magazines, yearbooks and newspapers published within the 2011-2012 academic year. Perspectives was one of 32 magazines honored with either a Silver or Gold Crown Award. CSPA is affiliated with the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University in New York City. Publications were judged on writing/editing, design, content, concept, photography, art and graphics.

“The 2011-12 Perspectives was led by editor-in-chief Alana Murphy, a member of the Class of 2012, and a staff of dedicated writing and layout editors, including current seniors Nora Henrie, Taylor Michael, Sarah Manning, Emma Burke, Blair Kennedy and Morgan Kennedy, and sophomore Emily Davenport,” Dr. Mottolese said. “Thanks also go to the faculty who advised the student-led staff, retired English teacher Mimi Rafferty and photography teacher Kev Filmore.”
