Jada Tulloch, the 2020 valedictorian of Middletown High School North, said she “had a great experience in Middletown public schools” and that she “wouldn’t have it any other way” in an interview with Sophia Haber Brock of Sophia Directs published on May 24.
Tulloch told a very different story in a self published Instagram video about a week later. Suddenly her “great experience” that she “wouldn’t have any other way” transformed into “surviving years of racial discrimination, oppression and disgusting comments” from the people she surrounded herself with in “God forsaken” Middletown.
First in her class at Middletown North, Tulloch has been accepted to Columbia University. She is the daughter of Stanley H. Tulloch, a Vice President at Morgan Stanley, and Natasha A. Tulloch, a Division Manager for Vemco, an international distributor of well known food and beverage brands. The Tullochs live in the New Monmouth section of Middletown.
Middletown Schools Superintendent Dr. Bill George felt compelled by the controversy to issue an innocuous letter of support for his star student.Bill-George
