LONG BRANCH — Two high school seniors from Union County have received a scholarship from the New Jersey Association for College Admission Counseling. Organization President Dr. Marianna P. Marchese made the announcement at an awards luncheon at the 2011 NJACAC Annual Conference at Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch.
Kyle Douglas, a high school senior from Union County Magnet High School, and Bryan Santos, a high school senior from Cranford High School, were the 2011 recipients of the annual scholarship. Douglas will be attending Princeton University and Santos will be attending Yale University in the fall.
“We are proud to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of both Kyle and Bryan by awarding them these scholarships,” said Marchese. “Kyle and Bryan were selected from our most academically talented and service oriented applicant pool in the organization’s history. The vitality, energy and conviction that Kyle and Bryan provided in their applications were evident. The commitment, as well as the depth and breadth of their high school leadership experience was matched by their contributions to community service, while meeting the academic challenges in college prep, honors, and AP course work. As an organization that values the role of school counselors in the college search and selection process, we also want to acknowledge the wonderful recommendations from their school counselors, Ms. Judith Linnett at Union County Magnet High School and Ms. Nancy Campbell at Cranford High School.”
