Monmouth County arts and education patron Dr. Robert Rechnitz met with second-year students in the Poseidon Early College High School program in Neptune on Feb. 11, taking time to discuss their educational goals and their experience in the unique program.
Dr. Rechnitz and his wife Joan, co-founders of the Two River Theater in Red Bank, drove the effort to establish the Poseidon program at Brookdale’s Neptune Higher Education Center in 2013.
The first program of its kind in the state, Poseidon allows first-generation college students the opportunity to earn a Brookdale associate degree by the time they complete high school. The program welcomed its first class in fall 2014.
