WEST ORANGE, NJ — West Orange High School student Jackson Edwards attended Monday’s West Orange Board of Education (WOBOE) meeting to request the approval of the creation of a boys volleyball team at the school.

Edwards came prepared with 165 signatures from students who would be interested in playing competitive volleyball.

Members of the WOBOE were impressed with Edwards’ presentation and vowed to secure a meeting with WOHS Principal Hayden more to discuss the topic further.
