Two Middlesex County College students were honored by the Edison Chamber of Commerce Oct. 10 at its awards reception and annual meeting. Dante Antonio Jackson (left) learned carpentry at the Edison Job Corps, but then realized he wanted to go to college, so he enrolled at Middlesex; he is planning to major in business administration. He was presented the Vocational Student of the Year award. Christian Cuison received the Annamae Baerenbach Scholarship. A computer science major who graduated in 2017, he is now attending Rutgers University. They are flanking Joann La Perla-Morales, MCC’s president.
