SCOTCH PLAINS—Junior Dara Maguire of Scotch Plains scored a perfect 800 on the math section of her SAT. She attributes her success to her math teachers at Union Catholic High School, who often have students practice standardized test taking in class. A particularly involved student, Maguire is a UC Ambassador, Executive Board member for SMAC (Student Movement Against Cancer), and is a member of the varsity lacrosse team. She is currently taking pre-calculus and intends to pursue a career in the math/science fields; she is especially interested in exploring engineering as an option. Maguire is planning to take on an engineering internship during her senior year to help aid her in the decisions of her college major and career path. (Photo courtesy of Union Catholic High School)
