The Middlesex County School Boards Association and the Association of School Administrators hosted the 30th Annual Student Recognition Program honoring outstanding Juniors and Seniors in Middlesex County's High Schools on March 4, 2015 at the New Brunswick High School.  The students honored are those who have demonstrated incredible perseverance and focus despite the challenges life has placed in their paths. 

This year John Chillemi and Joshua Stasenko were honored. These students are our "unsung heros", who have taught us a life lesson about achievement in the face of adversity. 

 Master of Ceremony was Middlesex County School Boards Association President Debbie Boyle; guest speakers Dr. Linda A. Madison, Middlesex County Association of School Administrators; Donald Webster, President of New Jersey School Board Association; and Keynote Address given by Mrs. Anne Byrne, President, National School Boards Association.
