NORTH BERGEN – Mayor Nicholas Sacco received the inaugural Fairleigh Dickinson University Latino Promise Program Award of Appreciation Tuesday at the organization's “Halfway There” ceremony.

The ceremony marked the end of Latino Promise Program students’ sophomore year, making them halfway to receive a college degree. The program began in 2007 with a goal of overcoming traditional barriers to higher education for Latino students.

Sacco was chosen for the award because of his consistent support of the organization’s goals and missions of empowering Latino students, according to a press release. – Tricia Tirella

you don't have to be a genius to see that Sacco used North Bergen Board of Education Trustee Julio Marenco to garner this FDU "award"...

the program began in 2007 yet the first "award" was THIS year ?

LOL !

"according to a press release." - Wait, is this a press release or a story? We can never tell with your articles. Where are the details? How many students were involved? How much money was dedicated to this?

This seems just like a last ditch effort to convince the hispanic community he cares about them after basically ignoring them for 25 years. Too little, too late, Mr. Mayor! Change is a coming...Hasta la vista!
