Wayne Sunga and Christopher Florentino, both M.E.T.S. Jersey City seniors, were honored at the 31st annual Hudson County Academic Achievement Banquet held on May 9th. The young men were honored for being the top two academically ranked graduates from the M.E.T.S. Charter School Jersey City campus. Each public high school in the county was represented by the students with the top two grade point averages of their senior class. The wonderful event was hosted by the Hudson County Superintendent of Schools Office and The Hudson County Association of Chief School Administrators. The students said it felt good to be acknowledged and that they are eager to keep growing when they go off to college next year. Wayne Sunga, top in his class, is going to continue his education at Stevens Institute of Technology. Christopher Florentino will be attending Rutgers. Mr. Malpass, the Jersey City Campus Instructional Leader, and Ms. Dullea, the Interim Lead Administrator, attended with these star students and were delighted to have them represent our school. The speaker for the evening was Frank Gargiulo, the Superintendent for the Hudson County Schools of Technology. We all agree at M.E.T.S. that these two scholars have developed into the ideal role models for M.E.T.S. underclassmen.
