SOMERSET, NJ - Central Jersey College Prep hosted its annual Multicultural Night Friday, June 14.
Parents, educators, and students were treated to an evening of song, dance, fashion and poetry provided by students in the native clothing of the countries they represented.
The entertainment highlighted the cultures of various countries and ethnic groups. However, the cultural diversity celebrated by this evening’s show is the normal manner of things at CJCP.
