Our very own Addie Wallace in grade 8 was honored on Monday, May 22, 2017 by the prestigious Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering at their annual dinner meeting at UCONN. She received the CASE Award for her invention, the Eco-Tote, which she created to do double duty as an attractive scarf and as a handy tote bag. As part of the CASE aware Addie was presented with a Certificate of Special Recognition signed by Congressman Joe Courtney and a Certificate of Achievement from the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering. Addie is a fabulous representative of our school, and we are very proud of her!!!
