Justin Forde, a senior at Brien McMahon High School and a student who has been a member of Carver’s after school Youth Development Program, received a full athletic scholarship from the University of Miami.

Here are his latest high school stats. On March 11th, recovering from ankle injuries, Justin competed and won the triple jump competition at New Balance Nationals Indoor with 51-3. Here is an interview with Justin following that victory. At the last outdoor season at the CT State Open, Justin won the triple jump (49-6.5) and second high jump (6-4), and at the Class LL he won the triple jump (48-3.75), won the long jump (22-2.5) and achieved the second high jump (6-4).

Here is Justin and school friend Kelete Sherald reporting to Carver readers about what they discovered last year at Villanova University during Carver’s annual Spring College Tour.

The Carver community is so proud of its students, and we congratulate Justin on his many academic and athletic achievements as he continues his career at the University of Miami.
