With ef- forts focused on reinvigorating the culinary arts program, LAN Associates (LAN) de- signed a new state-of-the-art Culinary Arts Lab. “This is like the Food Net- work, Leonia style,” said Joanne Megargee, the Leonia superintendent of schools. “Our architects are thrilled.” L Secaucus, NJ — The re- cent topping out ceremony held at the Hudson County School of Technology (HCST) High Tech High School’s Secaucus, New Jersey campus, com- memorated the installation of the building’s last remaining uppermost beam, which was signed by Thomas DeGise, The Hudson County execu- tive; Craig Guy, HCST Board of Education president; Frank J. Gargiulo, Superintendent of HCST; Norman Guerra, Hudson County Improvement Authority executive director; and Dr. Joe Sirangelo, assis- tant superintendent of HCST. The project, for which MAST Construction Services of Little Falls is serving as con- struction manager on behalf of the Hudson County Improve- ment Authority, is budgeted at $160 million, 59% of which is being funded through the state.

The addition to the school is needed as the high school enrollment grows. Since the 1970s, the Leonia school dis- trict has accepted students from the Edgewater school dis-

trict, as the Edgewater school district only educates students through the 6th grade. About 40% of the high school’s 575 students are from Edgewater, a number that is expected to grow in coming years. The Leonia High School ad- dition will include eight class- rooms, a small-group instruc- tion room and the culinary arts lab. It will also expand the high school cafeteria, make its theater wheelchair accessible, and a new courtyard for outdoor instruction. The construction is expected to be completed by September 2018. n
