[NEWARK, NJ] Two powerful men who rose from humble backgrounds offered messages of wisdom and hope to the graduating seniors at Newark’s West Side High School Tuesday.
Essex County Acting Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens II — a graduate of East Orange High School — whose earliest experiences in law date back to his days on the student court in his hometown school, told students they have more opportunity than he did back in the day.
“You have access to more information in the palm of your hand than we ever had,” Stephens said. “You are one of the most technologically savvy classes of students ever.”
