The 2024 Bradshaw Literary Award Recipient is Brady Norton

Brady Norton - 2024 Bradshaw Literary Award Recipient w

Since the 1920s, the HCA has recognized an HMHS senior with the Bradshaw Literary Award for their thoughtful and creative response to a civic-oriented writing prompt. Named after Mr. Bradshaw (HCA President 1920-1925), he had a strong interest in the youth of the community and he established an essay competition which served to encourage an interest and awareness of the need for participation in civic affairs. Now, the essay program is conducted at HMHS under the supervision of the English Department and the essays are judged by a BOG committee. Congratulations to Brady Norton!

The 2024 Kaufmann Performing Arts Award Recipient is Ryan Cataldo

Ryan Cataldo - 2024 Kaufmann Performing Arts Award w

Mr. Kaufmann was a long-time Haddonfield resident and enthusiastic amateur in the world of the performing arts. He wrote, composed and directed a musical commemorating his beloved hometown, “Kings’ Road”, winning a Freedom Foundation Award.  He was committed to assisting those around him, not looking for recognition and thanks, just looking to help. Accordingly, this award seeks to recognize a HMHS senior who exemplifies his twin passions of civic engagement and participation in the performing arts. Congratulations to Ryan Cataldo!

Julia Guazzone -2024 Quanci Visual Arts Recipient w

The HCA Board recognizes the visual arts program has been so strong, growing in stature and numbers (thanks to the hard work of the faculty and administrative support), that it deserved it’s own award. All HMHS seniors are encouraged to enter visual art submission for consideration. Entries include 2D and 3D pieces in any medium. The HCA is continually proud of the hard work and insight shared by the HMHS students and their display of creativity. Congratulations to Julia Guazzone!

Julia Guazzone’s Response to Prompt

Twenty years ago, Mr. Smith started the environmental science program and had only 13 students sign up. Today, it has expanded to 6 sections including CP and AP classes. His goal is to inspire his students, including me, to live a more sustainable lifestyle by conducting his labs in local lakes, ponds, forests, and streams resulting in being able to keep track of Haddonfield’s wildlife. He encourages his students to volunteer and speak up about today’s environmental issues and even hosts volunteer work. My piece represents one of the volunteer jobs I did with him, where we dug and planted seeds to build a pollinator garden. This pollinator garden, once grown, can increase native biodiversity, increase pollinating services, and can control invasive species of plants or insects.
