Palisades Park Jr./Sr. High School is proud to recognize senior Juliana Lee as the NJSIAA Scholar Athlete for 2013. Juliana was honored at a luncheon on May 19th, along with 350 other student athletes from across the New Jersey. The Scholar Athlete Award is an annual award given to a student who has attained a GPA of 3.0 or higher, showed outstanding accomplishments in a varsity sport, and has exhibited outstanding school and community citizenship.
Juliana also is commended for her school record in the 3200 meter race the day before at the Bergen County Track and Field Championships. Her time of 11 minutes and 48 seconds breaks an 8 year old record for the girls outdoor track and field team. She also won the 1600 meter race to become the first double County Group D Champion in Girls Track and Field for Palisades Park. Congratulations to Juliana and her family.
