ELIZABETH – The New Jersey Devils Honor Roll Program, now in its second year with the Elizabeth Public Schools, rewarded 356 of Elizabeth’s highest achieving eleventh and twelfth graders with vouchers for two tickets to a New Jersey Devils home game. The selected students all placed on the district’s Superintendent’s Honor Roll or the Principal’s Honor Roll for their outstanding academic performance in the first marking period.
“We are pleased that the honor roll program with the Elizabeth Public School system grew in our second season of supporting these outstanding students,” said Jeff Vanderbeek, chairman and managing partner of the New Jersey Devils. “This is our way of saying the Devils are proud of their hard work and dedication and we are thrilled to have them join us at the Prudential Center for a Devils game.”
The 356 students who qualified for this program, up from 312 students achieving Honor Roll status last year, are enrolled in Elizabeth’s six high schools which include: John E. Dwyer Technology Academy; Thomas Edison Career & Technical Academy; Elizabeth High School; Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr. Leadership Academy; Alexander Hamilton Preparatory Academy; and Thomas Jefferson Arts Academy.
“These students represent the highest in academic achievement in our six high schools and I congratulate them for their commitment to their education,” said Superintendent of Schools Pablo Muñoz. “They are taking advantage of the excellent education and many academic choices offered in our six high schools.”
Board of Education Vice President Fernando Nazco remarked, “These high school students are being rewarded for their diligence and hard work. We are very proud of their success.” He added, “We are grateful for the generosity of Jeff Vanderbeek and the New Jersey Devils for recognizing and rewarding student achievement in Elizabeth Public Schools and for their ongoing support of educational programs in the community.”
The New Jersey Devils honor roll students were formally recognized at the Jan. 19 Elizabeth Board of Education meeting.
