Matt Fung, Alum

Matthew Fung graduated summa cum laude in 2014 from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Aerospace Engineering. He is now a Product Engineer with Howmet Aerospace where he specializes in developing jet engines for the Defense Department.

Matt’s parents raised him and his two sisters in Paterson. Said Matt, “Paterson is a city of hardworking immigrants. But with low graduation rates, and often dangerous campuses, the public schools in Paterson were not what my parents wanted for me. Although my parents worked incredibly hard, paying for priv

ate school for three children was difficult. Tri-County was there with open arms helping to alleviate the financial stresses of tuition.”

“I am living proof of how much of a difference Tri-County makes in the lives of students today,” said Matthew, “I urge you to continue making the world brighter one student at a time by supporting this great organization.”
