Northeast Metro Tech Students Earn John and Abigail Adams Scholarships
WAKEFIELD — School Committee Chair Deborah Davis and Superintendent David DiBarri are pleased to announce that 74 seniors earned John and Abigail Adams Scholarships for eight semesters tuition free at any Massachusetts state college or university.
Principal Carla Scuzzarella presented students with a letter of congratulations from the Massachusetts Department of Education during an awards ceremony on Nov. 15.
To earn a John and Abigail Adams Scholarship, students had to score advanced in either the math or English language arts section on their grade 10 MCAS. Students also had to score proficient or advanced in the second subject (math or English), and have a combined score on the assessment that ranked in the top 25 percent of their school district based on 12th grade enrollment numbers as of Oct 1, 2018.
The tuition waiver can be used at all four undergraduate campuses at the University of Massachusetts, all nine state universities and all 15 community colleges.
“We’re extremely proud of our students who earned John and Abigail Adams Scholarships for their outstanding MCAS scores,” Superintendent DiBarri said. “This is indicative of the standard of excellence we continue to foster here at Northeast.”
