Central student Garrison Asma’s story earns American Voices Medal

A Central High School student’s short story has earned national recognition.

Garrison Asma, a Central High School junior, recently won the regional Gold Key award from the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers for a short story he wrote entitled, “I Am All That Is”.

Only 7-10 percent of all regional submissions were recognized with the Gold Key Award. As a regional Gold Key winner, Asma’s submission was sent to the National Awards in New York where it earned the prestigious American Voices Medal. Winning this national honor placed him within the top 1 percent of the 230,000 works of art and writing that were submitted by students in grades 7-12. On May 31, Garrison and his family will be traveling to New York, where Garrison will receive his award in a ceremony at Carnegie Hall. This ceremony can be viewed via a live webcast at 6 p.m. Eastern time.
