MONTCLAIR, NJ — James Caldwell High School (JCHS) senior Haley Askling was honored at the Montclair Art Museum on Thursday for winning a Gold Key in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards for a paper mache sculpture she made her junior year in Draw Paint, entitled "Bloom."

Askling, who earlier this month was named a JCHS ShopRite Star in the arts category, also received honorable mentions for two of her Graphic Design pieces.

“This is an immense honor and great accomplishment,” said JCHS art teacher Jane Romm, who added that the Gold Key is the highest honor.
