Easton school receives awards

State lawmakers are offering a big congratulations to Helen Keller Middle School in Easton.

The school was recently named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.

State Representative John Shaban and State Senator John McKinney stopped by the school this morning to present the staff with an official citation from the General Assembly.

School officials say a large amount of the credit should go to the former Principal Joan Parker, who passed away late last year after battling cancer.
