NORWELL – Thirteen local students were honored by Community Newspaper Co. as The Best & The Brightest in an award ceremony last week.

The Best & The Brightest is a recognition program designed to spotlight outstanding young adults in communities covered by CNC’s local newspapers. Readers were invited to nominate individuals between the ages of 16 and 21 who deserved to be honored, whether for academic achievement, volunteerism, athletic prowess, artistic acumen or the pursuit of excellence in another field. It was sponsored this year by Jordan Hospital.

The 13 winners, chosen by a selection committee of community leaders, were featured in a special section that was published the first week of June.

The winners are Corey Belaief of Plymouth, Brittany Bergquist of Norwell, Austin Breslow of Cohasset, Emily Felix of Kingston, Joshua Goldman of Weymouth, Chris Kasper of Scituate, Rory McGuire of Braintree, Timothy O’Mara of Hanover, Jay Ribeiro of Wareham, Kelly Ryan of Hingham, Katelyn Sassorossi of Pembroke, Lija Treibergs of Duxbury and Joshua Warren of Marshfield.
