Several Danvers students were recently honored for their participation in this year’s Letters About Literature program sponsored by the Library of Congress.
Three Holten-Richmond Middle School students, Connor Delaney, Riley Doyle and Joseph DiStasio, visited the State House in Boston on May 3 to receive awards from the Massachusetts Center for the Book, a co-sponsor of the event.
Other students were semi-finalists and were honored at their individual schools.
