WAKEFIELD — Northeast Metro Tech High School Principal/Deputy-Director Carla Scuzzarella is pleased to announce that 72 seniors at the high school are among their peers statewide to receive the state’s John and Abigail Adams Scholarship.
This scholarship is available to students whose MCAS performance puts them in the top 25 percent of their district. To be eligible, students must either score advanced on one exam and high proficient on the other two, or advanced on the English, Math and Science exams.
“We routinely have a high number of our students qualify for the Adams Scholarship, and the Class of 2023 is no exception. This is a special group, who came back to school under very difficult circumstances in 2020-2021, and took the MCAS exams seriously in spring 2021,” said Principal Scuzzarella. “We are extremely proud of our seniors and the example they have set for our younger students.”
Recipients of the Adams Scholarship are granted four years of free tuition at Massachusetts state colleges and universities. Students who receive the Adams scholarship must complete their college program in four years or less and maintain a cumulative 3.0 grade point average.
Northeast Metro Tech recently honored its scholarship recipients with a breakfast for students and their parents on Friday, December 2, 2022.
