SECAUCUS, N.J. — ‘High School Nation,’ a touring company dedicated to introducing students to opportunities in music, arts and media, will visit High Tech High School on Thursday. As part of the program, students will sit in on a presentation about the negative effects of vaping and participate in a Q&A session about performing, broadcasting and producing music. After the educational portion of the event, ‘High School Nation’ will host a music festival and carnival at the Frank J. Gargiulo Campus.
“HCST fosters collaborative learning experiences for our community. We are fortunate to welcome ‘High School Nation’ who partnered with ‘Truth’ to provide our students with this unique educational opportunity – addressing the harmful effects of vaping while highlighting The Arts to actively interact with their peers,” said Superintendent Amy Lin-Rodriguez.
‘High School Nation’ is being brought to High Tech High School thanks to the diligent work of Steven Ricciardi, Supervisor of the Arts Academy.
“Arts play a critical role in the healthy development of adolescents, and Hudson County School of Technology’s wide array of programs help each student find his or her niche, and provide a healthy foundation of appreciation the arts,” said Steven Ricciardi, Supervisor of The Arts Academy.
The Q&A session will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The outdoor festival will begin at 12:45 p.m. Members of the media interested in attending should contact Caitlin Mota at 201-737-5832 or firstname.lastname@example.org
