High Tech is in North Bergen but accepts students from all over Hudson County.
For Marisol Romano, 17, of North Bergen the day was a mix of emotions.
“I’m nervous and excited,” she said. “I’m finally graduating high school and happy to move on to college.”
Romano will be attending Montclair State University to pursue a degree in education.
“There are so many things I could say about them,” said Principal Joseph Giammarella, Ph.D. “They’re a great group of students, always willing to do their part and then some.”
The universities and colleges the students will be attending in the fall include Brown, Harvard, Princeton, Syracuse, and Yale.
The students received $18 million in scholarships and financial aid. – Joseph Passantino
