Please join me at this special upcoming virtual event—Celebration of Hope: An Evening with NJIT Students

Filming of Celebration of Hope Event

Dear Friends,

In November 2002, I had the great honor and privilege of speaking at the 2002 NJIT Celebration event as the undergraduate student speaker. I could not have foreseen that nearly 20 years later, I would have the sincere honor and pleasure of participating in the upcoming March 25, 2021 virtual event—Celebration of Hope: An Evening with NJIT Students—as a three-time NJIT alumna and founder of the Kardos and Jusino Family Annual Scholarship in Memory of John F. Papetti, Sr. 

In preparation for this virtual event, I had the opportunity to speak with the very talented and outstanding NJIT chemical engineering senior student, Sydney Sweet. Our conversation was so very special and meaningful; I invite you all to view our touching and impactful conversation during the event so that you can hear all the extraordinary things Sydney has accomplished during her time at NJIT, as well as listen to the other heartwarming and amazing stories of NJIT students and graduates. 

Please join me in viewing this very special event at 7 pm on March 25, 2021 by registering at or by clicking “register” on the information page at (the program can be viewed at 7 pm on March 25th at and will be available for a limited time following the live broadcast).

NJIT is, and will always be, part of my heart; I know you will enjoy this event and I am so proud to share it with you.
