An article published by NJ BIZ magazine on June 3, 2024, highlighted the New Jersey Manufacturers Extension Program Makers and Creators Tour's visit to Piscataway High School.
The tour's goal of exposing students to career possibilities in manufacturing aligns with our district goal of expanding opportunities for students who don't plan to attend a four-year college.
“All of our students are a priority," Dr. C. Alex Gray, the district's director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, told NJ BIZ. "Those that are going to college are a priority. Those who may not want to go to college – they are a priority as well.
"And these opportunities let them know that they are a priority. And their goals and their plans are just as important as our students who are planning to go to a college. So, hopefully they get that from this experience and also leave here saying – ‘wow, I didn’t think about this career but now I am.’”
