CLARK—Six seniors at Mother Seton Regional High School have been designated as Edward J. Bloustein Distinguished Scholars for the 2010-11 collegiate academic year, Sister Regina Martin, principal announced.
Mother Seton’s scholars are: Georgia Barbayannis, Highland Park; Jessica Castro, Perth Amboy; Bintu Conteh, New Brunswick; Jatinder Dhami, Carteret; Kaitlin Laico, Edison and Amanda Skuriat, Linden.
“These girls follow a rigorous AP and Honors Level curriculum at Mother Seton and many are designated as Seton Distinguished Scholars,” said Sister Regina Martin.
The Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, an independent agency of the State of New Jersey, administers the Garden State Scholarship Program, which includes the Edward J. Bloustein Distinguished Scholar awards. The Distinguished Scholars Program provides an annual scholarship of up to $1,000, without regard to financial need to those students who choose to enroll full time at a New Jersey college or university.
The award recognizes secondary school academic achievement. Students must rank of one, two or three in the graduating class or rank within the top 10 percent of the graduating class at the end of junior year and have critical reading and math SAT scores of 1260 or higher.
