Scotch Plains, NJ – Four
Union Catholic students, Corey Barnwell of New Providence, Jonathan Boros of Fords,
Daniel Florendo of Scotch Plains, and Richard Ryngel of Union, were recently
selected to attend American Legion Jersey Boys’ State at Rider University this
summer. The program was organized for citizen training purposes, to educate
youth in the “duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American
citizenship.” Providing a foundation for understanding self-government and
major public issues, Boys’ State attempts to drive home the ideals and
processes of democracy. Union Catholic chose these students based on their
school involvement, leadership qualities, and character. They were interviewed
and accepted as delegates by American Legion Post #3 in Westfield.
For 50 years, Union
Catholic High School has earned its reputation as one of New Jersey's foremost
Catholic secondary schools. For information, visit unioncatholic.org.
