Last month, the Essex Hudson Chapter of Jack and Jill of America conducted a Foundation for Success workshop for New Jersey SEEDS Young Scholars, which was funded in part by The Jack and Jill of America Foundation. Young Scholars began the day-long event with a group discussion of We Beat the Streets, the story of three young men growing up in inner-city Newark who beat the odds and achieved their goal of becoming doctors. Students then had the opportunity to hear from the day’s keynote speaker, Dwayne D. Warren, Esq., the Mayor of the City of Orange Township, who emphasized themes from We Beat the Streets and shared experiences from his own Newark upbringing. Mayor Warren told Young Scholars about his independent school experience and educational journey, highlighted the importance of hard work and giving back to the community and warned about the dangers of peer pressure. He also gave advice on “owning” your new school and becoming part of its community, and shared what he expects of students on the first day at their new schools. The second portion of the day provided time for eight Jack and Jill teens to answer questions about diversity and success in selective schools with SEEDS’ Young Scholars. Thanks to our friends at Jack and Jill for making this Foundation for Success workshop a great experience for our students!

Congratulations to Diamond McClintock (YSP '04, Pingry School '10, Dickinson College '14) who is curating an art exhibition on campus. The "Letters & Lines" exhibit runs until April 12 and features works by Albrecht Durer, Claude Lorraine, Anthony van Dyck, Rembrandt van Rijn and Hendrick Goltzius. The exhibit was picked up by the Courier News last week as well!

Earlier this month, SEEDS Young Scholars visited the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey where they had the opportunity to explore exhibits, including "Woman Choose Woman...Again" which featured the work of 27 female artists. Young Scholars created self portraits and created imagery that represented themselves in the background of their work. Thanks to our friends at the Visual Arts Center for a terrific day!
