"The Seton Hall Prep community has been enriched by the presence of these two fine Setonians, who have lived their well-rounded Prep experiences to the fullest, and who have exemplified the spirit of The Prep as men of service at school and in their local communities," stated President Msgr. Michael E. Kelly '57 and Headmaster, Mr. Michael G. Gallo '79. Dr. James Incardona, Assistant Headmaster for Academics, and Mrs. Lisa Sgaramella, Assistant Headmaster for Faculty added, "Matthew and Connor are models of character and academic achievement.
