Our Lady of Mercy Academy rising senior, Ava Casale was named to the 2019-2020 class of the Governor’s STEM Scholars. Admission to this program, sponsored by the Research and Development Council of New Jersey is highly selective. The Council’s Advisory Board used rigorous criteria, including character, leadership ability, and STEM aptitude to select this year’s class of scholars.
Over the course of the upcoming academic year, the students will receive a comprehensive introduction to the New Jersey STEM economy, participate in a STEM research project and meet state thought leaders in academia, government, and industry. Casale will join other selected students in the program’s Opening Symposium on Saturday, September 28, 2019, at Rutgers University.
