WESTPORT — Staples High School students Jason Capozucca and Zoe Finger both were honored at the 28th annual “High School Arts Awards” hosted by the Connecticut Association of Schools.

They were among approximately 300 high school seniors from around the state cited at the association’s recent annual banquet in Southington.

Capozucca was recognized for music, while Finger was honored for visual art.

The group honors two seniors at each member high school for “their outstanding ability in the performing or visual arts,” according to a press statement.
