LIVINGSTON, NJ — Heritage Middle School (HMS) Italian teacher Vinny Belcastro was named the winner of a virtual talent competition where staff members showed off various skills and students voted for their favorites.

Belcastro’s vocals and skills on the acoustic guitar landed him in first place, followed by Erika Dent, who came in second for collection of drawings, and Kim Egipciaco, whose own vocal performance earned her third place.

Livingston Public Schools extended a “kudos to the many brave staff members at Heritage Middle School who put themselves out there to show off their talents” in this first-of-its-kind event.
