First Lady Mary Pat Christie Gives Melina Garcia the 2015 New Jersey Hero Award

UCMP had the great honor to have Mrs Christie visit us and recognize the work we have been doing for the almost 3 years by giving us the 2015 New Jersey Hero Award. Our students played for Mrs Christie and she was very moved to learn about their accomplishments since 2012. Students had the opportunity to ask her questions and spend some time with her. Thank you so much, Mrs Christie for taking the time to come and see all that we are doing to give opportunities to our students. Thank you NJ Hero Foundation’s staff for being so kind and generous. As you will see, it was a truly beautiful event. Mrs Christie gave UCMP $7,500 and within a few months, we will be able to apply to additional funding for our program. Thank you!!!
