Brewington Named Ace Student

Adult Literacy (The County Seat, August, 2013) Anthony Brewington, of Hackensack, was recently named Student of the Year at Project Literacy of Greater Bergen County’s annual awards ceremony. The event, held at Hackensack University Medical Center, was the 25th for the non-profit agency.

Brewington, who was also one of the event’s keynote speakers, recounted his struggle to pass his GED test. He then learned about Project Literacy of Greater Bergen County and requested a math tutor. It was that tutor, John Katzianer, who changed Brewington’s life. “John is like an espresso. He gave me the boost of energy that I never thought I could get because I was not great at math. He helped me realize that algebra was not a puzzle.” Brewington passed the GED last spring.
