ORANGE - When Cassie Madigan and Gabrielle Aiardo learned of the Scholastic Press Corps Kids Press they both said they decided to enter the competition. To apply they had to explain why they would make a good reporter and write a 400-word story about what makes their state so great. And they were tickled to death when they were chosen. Only four students in the state were chosen. Last year Katherine Forbes, also a Peck Place student was chosen.
"This is quite an honor," Peck Place School Principal Al deCant said. "They are the most wonderful young ladies," he added smiling.
