CLARK, NJ –Arthur L. Johnson High School senior Gennaro Nigro recently signed with Cornell University. Nigro was recruited by the men’s soccer team. While at Cornell, he plans to study Finance and Italian in the fall.
According to school officials, along with maintaining a challenging course load and high achievements in the classroom, Nigro plays soccer at the Players Development Academy in Somerset, New Jersey. He is an active member in the school community as an officer for the Key Club and a member of the Italian Club. Nigro is also actively involved in the St. Agnes Church Youth Group.
