"This is a tremendous honor," said John, who noted is he also proud to represent RHS.
The Govenor's School of Engineering & Technology is a unique and intensive residential summer program that brings together some of New Jersey's most talented and motivated high school students. Students take team-based courses in areas such as "Robot Soccer" and research projects including designing water purification systems for the developing world. The scholars work with peers and professors who are experts in their fields. The students gain hands-on experience in research and work on challenging and open-ended problems with others who share their passion for engineering and technology.
Jessica said she is very excited for the N.J. Scholars Program at the Lawrenceville School because of its focus on the great war. The progam is titled "The Great War Era: Cultural Splendor or the Collapse of Civilization?" The students will attend daily lectures and seminars, take field trips and even attend a special graduation ceremony at the culmination of the program.
RHS Principal Debbie Iosso said she is proud of John and Jessica and know that they will represent RHS well in these presitigious programs. "John and Jessica are absolute role models for all of Randolph High School students," she said. "I can't wait to hear about their experiences."
