CLIFTON, N.J. - Joseph Federico, NJMET Director of Operations, announced the company's annual STEM scholarship was awarded to Mr. Kenneth Relovsky, a graduate of the Diana C. Lobosco STEM Academy’s engineering program at Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) in Wayne, NJ. Kenneth is currently attending Swarthmore College where he plans to major in Engineering. Kenneth graduated from the DCL STEM Academy with a weighted GPA of 4.39, ranking in the top 7% of his graduating class. Throughout high school, he participated in many extracurricular activities including Varsity Soccer, Varsity Track & Field, Yearbook Club, History Club, and volunteering as an engineering Teacher Assistant. Kenneth was also a member of the Rho Kappa, World Language, and National Honor Societies. In college, Kenneth plans to continue his passion for engineering by studying embedded systems within electric and self-driving cars. He also will be competing in Cross Country and Track & Field for Swarthmore College. Finally, Kenneth plans to continue his studies in engineering by eventually going to graduate school and becoming a professional engineer.
"During Mr. Relovsky’s interview at NJMET, I was pleased to learn of his interest in self-driving cars. I had the pleasure of showing him firsthand videos of the self-driving Waymo One, formerly known as the Google self-driving car which is fully autonomous in ride-hailing service. Riders can use the Waymo One app to hail one of their autonomously driven vehicles (with no human driver in the front seat!) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while addressing business in northern California this past July “ said NJMET's Joseph Federico from their laboratory headquarters in Clifton, NJ.
Last year's recipient from PCTI was Sami Choudhury. “Kenneth represents the seventh consecutive recipient from PCTI and NJMET is proud to present this scholarship for the 23rd consecutive year and to offer internships to current college students who will learn the intricacies of electronic component testing in the industrial, military and aerospace arenas," added Federico.
