Seniors who belong to Bound Brook High School’s robotics team, R.O.B.B.E., recently announced their future plans during the FIRST Robotics Senior Signing Day. FIRST Signing Day is an initiative originally conceived in 2016 by the organization to celebrate and recognize graduating seniors with shout-outs, congratulations, and signings from teams and supporters.
The Bound Brook School District is honored to celebrate the next steps of the following seniors and look forward to hearing what they will achieve next:
- Daniel V. will attend Rutgers University’s New Brunswick campus and major in world and US history. He received a Dean’s Scholarship and will attend the Honors College. Daniel’s goal is to eventually work as a historian in museums.
- Jerel F. is headed to Rider University’s Lawrenceville campus this fall, where he will major in digital marketing. Jerel received a Dean’s Scholarship and Leadership Award. His future plans include studying abroad.
- Alexis C. is going to Raritan Valley Community College and will major in business. He received a NJ Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship (STARS), which is reserved for New Jersey’s highest achieving students. Alexis would like to work in a field that uses both engineering and business skills.
- Giavana C. will head to Fairleigh Dickinson’s Florham campus this fall, where she will major in psychology and minor in film. She received admission to the Honors College and a grant from the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund.
