Fairfield resident Michael Marcello, a junior at Christian Heritage School in Trumbull, received top honors for his written work in the Laws of Life essay program, which encourages students to reflect and write about the values they believe will help them develop successful and productive lives.

Michael’s essay, entitled “The Value of a Life,” received one of the top 15 spots out of approximately 2,200 submissions. The essay describes Michael’s first hunting trip deep in the woods of northern Georgia. This experience helped him better to appreciate the natural beauty of the world and that every life has worth in its own respect.

The top student essayists, including Michael and two other CHS students, junior Courtney Lopiano and sophomore Tony Mao, were recognized at a dinner celebration at Amarante’s Sea Cliff in New Haven on May 1.
