State Board of Education Recognizes Gloucester County Student

The State Board of Education today recognized Nina Camaioni, a junior at Williamstown High School, as its March student of the month.

Camaioni is a standout student athlete.  She ranks eighth in her class of 437 students and is a star volleyball player on the Williamstown squad.  Last fall, she was named the Star-Ledger’s New Jersey Girls’ Volleyball Player of the Year, and the Courier-Post’s South Jersey Girls’ Volleyball Player of the Year for the second consecutive year.

“Nina Camaioni, from her impressive academic and athletic record, is an extremely well-rounded student,” said State Board of Education President Arnold G. Hyndman.  “We are honored to recognize her today, and hope she will continue to be a good role model for students in not only Williamstown High School, but for students throughout the state.”

“The Department of Education joins the State Board in recognizing Nina’s accomplishments and talent,” said Acting Commissioner of Education Lucille E. Davy.  “The success she has experienced so far should translate into a phenomenal senior year and a successful college career.”

The Courier-Post honor is her second in two years.  Camaioni has also been named the Gatorade Player of the Year in New Jersey for girls’ volleyball and is an All-American.  Camaioni participates in seven extracurricular activities.  She has been an officer for three of them.

Each month during the school year, the State Board of Education honors a student or group of students from a county in New Jersey to recognize academic excellence.  In February, the State Board of Education recognized Sara Steele, a senior at West Milford High School in Passaic County.
