LINDEN — Angelo Monaco of Linden has accepted membership in The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).

NSCS is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is the nation’s only interdisciplinary honors organization for first- and second-year college students. Membership is by invitation only, based on grade point average and class standing.

“It is an honor and a blessing to be recognized by a prestigious society like NSCS for my accomplishments at Rutgers,” Monaco said. “Admission into this organization lets me know that I am heading down the right path in life and that I will have continued success if I continue to work hard and take advantage of the opportunities presented to me. Now that I am a member of NSCS, I will push myself harder than ever in my endeavors to achieve excellence and prove to myself and to others why I was accepted into NSCS to begin with.”

“NSCS is more than just a symbol of academic achievement. Membership gives students access to a number of amazing benefits including career and networking resources, scholarships, travel, and service projects both on campus and in the community,” says Stephen E. Loflin, NSCS Founder & Chief Executive Officer.

NSCS has more than 850,000 lifetime members and 300 chapters in 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Monaco is a rising sophomore at Rutgers University-New Brunswick and a student in the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program. He is planning to major in Mathematics. He was the valedictorian of the Linden High School Class of 2011 and a recipient of the International Baccalaureate Diploma. In high school, he was President of the Spanish National Honor Society, a member of the National Honor Society, a member of the 2011 Union County Championship Consumer Bowl Team, and a recipient of the NJPAC Jeffrey Carollo Music Scholarship. In addition, he has been a basketball coach for the Linden Recreation Department since 2010.
