Two Wayne County Schools Career Center students received certificates and a gift card from American Legion Post 68 for having the highest career center scores on the American Legion Americanism test.

The two juniors receiving awards were Hattie Sciortino of West Salem from culinary arts and Chase Meffe of Doylestown from interactive media. Sciortino is the daughter of Anthony and Jessica Sciortino of West Salem, and Meffe is the son of Heather Meffe of Doylestown.

“This is the 21st year that the career center has participated in the testing program,” WCSCC government teacher Theresa Morgan said. “The test is taken across the nation in early November.”

The honors were presented by trustee Bob Wiles and Cmdr. Shirl Evans in front of instructors, administrators and staff.

The exam is given at schools throughout the United States, and a boy and girl in each grade level from sophomores to seniors with the highest scores advance to district and regional competitions, which identify state qualifiers. State winners receive a free trip to Washington, D.C.
