Two Upper School students, Hannah Jin ’20 and Jalen Patel ’20, have been selected as New Jersey Governor’s School Scholars. The 2019 Scholars represent outstanding high school juniors from all parts of the state who have an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This summer, Hannah and Jalen will participate in intensive, multi-week residential programs at New Jersey universities.
Hannah will attend the New Jersey Governor’s School in the Sciences at Drew University, and Jalen will attend the Governor’s School of Engineering & Technology at Rutgers University. Both programs include comprehensive educational programming, research projects, and visits to local STEM-focused companies.
The Governor’s School of New Jersey was established in 1983. The tuition-free programs are open to students from diverse economic backgrounds who are New Jersey residents and who have completed their junior year in any public or private high school or are home-schooled.
