December 2017- MCVSD Business Partner of the Year Award

Board President- Clement Sommers, Business Partner- Stefanie Aber, Senior VP at Hackensack Meridian Health, Director of Adult Education- Dana Schaed

For the past two years Mrs. Aber has been a vital partner to the Monmouth County Vocational School District's high school and adult nursing population, as well as the community at large. She has advocated for our students and programs by providing funding which enabled us to offer a series of free CNA courses, which included job placement, to multiple in-need populations such as ESL and high school youth from Asbury Park. Mrs. Aber continuously works with teachers and administration to guide best practices in our nursing division. She was also a major force in creating three Healthcare apprenticeship programs, which include the first official CNA Mentor and Restorative Apprenticeship programs in New Jersey set to begin in February 2018. Mrs. Aber is a constant source of industry knowledge, best practices in nursing education, and guidance in navigating board of nursing policies and regulations. 

December 2017- MAST takes home first place win from drill competition
By Muriel J. Smith
The Monmouth Journal

SANDY HOOK — Cadets from the drill team of the Marine Academy of Science and Technology’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (MAST) took first place at Manchester High School’s recent Pearl Harbor Day drill competition. The Sandy Hook-based school competed against cadets from 12 other NJROTC units from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware in eight events, including academics, athletics, uniform inspection and precision marching.

MAST placed first in Armed Platoon (commanded by Cadet Liam Kile of Tinton Falls), New Cadet Color Guard (commanded by Cadet Zachary Mansfield of Monmouth Beach), and Academics (commanded by Cadet Caroline Davidson of Brielle), 2nd in New Cadet Basic (commanded by Cadet William Hurley of Monmouth Beach), Unarmed Platoon (commanded by Cadet Emily Fuller of Brielle), Varsity Color Guard (commanded by Cadet Jake O’Donnell of Tinton Falls), and Personnel Inspection (commanded by Cadet Shane McCutcheon of Manasquan), and 3rd in athletics (commanded by Cadet Liam Hoagland of Colts Neck).

“The cadets really went above and beyond preparing for this meet,” said retired Navy Commander Tracie Smith-Yeoman, MAST’s Senior Naval Science Instructor. “Since we don’t have an indoor facility here on the Hook that’s large enough for drill practice, the cadets must practice outside in all kinds of weather. We also don’t have late buses like many other schools, so the parents must arrange for transportation for the cadets when they finish after-school practice. Most of the cadets live more than 30 minutes away. This win belongs to the entire MAST family. We couldn’t do so well without the incredible support of the parents, grandparents, and other family and friends.”

Atlantic City High School’s NJROTC unit, headed by retired Navy Lieutenant Commander Jeff Dennison and retired Navy Chief Warrant Officer Chris Brown, took second place, and Colts Neck High School’s NJROTC unit, headed by retired Marine Corps Major Gregory Penczak, took third.

MAST’s next competition will be at the Linden High School’s Martin Luther King, Jr. meet, to be held Jan. 15 and they are hoping to qualify to attend the 2018 NJROTC Nationals Academic, Athletic & Drill Championship to be held in Pensacola, Florida next April.

MAST is one of the five career academies in the Monmouth County Vocational School District. The district accepts students for the four-year high school without discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, orientation, religion, disability or socioeconomic status. Students are required to be active members of the Navy Junior ROTC program during their high school years, which focuses on citizenship development and leadership.

There is no requirement for military service after graduation.
