LITTLE SILVER – The Red Bank Regional High School, through its education foundation, has observed a warm tradition for the past 10 years of honoring its most distinguished alumni.
The honor includes an invitation to visit the high school where they tour the facility with our principal and meet the faculty and students. The tour culminates in a special reception for the honorees when students celebrate their lives in prose composed from submitted biographies.
A special luncheon also will be held in their honor. Diners and their guests will be serenaded by the VPA instrumental student majors.
The 20012-2013 school year’s program will take place on Friday, April 26.
Nearly 100 individuals already have received the honor including, successful business men and women, philanthropic community members, long-standing public servants, community leaders, exceptional Red Bank Regional educators and tireless volunteers. Their names are inscribed on a plaque hanging near the school’s entrance for posterity.
The nomination for the honor has come to school officials primarily by word-of-mouth through networking among foundation committee members.
School officials are hoping that members of the community may know of someone truly worthy of the honor and may choose to nominate that person for distinguished alumni consideration.
The criteria for submission is that the nominee graduated from Red Bank Regional High School (RBR) at least 15 years ago or from its predecessor, Red Bank High School, which was located at the current Red Bank Middle School property. Nominees should be role models to young people and have distinguished themselves in their careers (making some unique contribution) and served the communities in which they live with honor and significant commitment.
With a rich history that dates back to 1906 there are potentially many distinguished alumni to honor. Officials hope the public will aid in the endeavor.
All nominations should be sent by the Jan. 4 deadline to the special assistant to the superintendent, Debbie Orrigo, by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 732-842-8000, Ext. 1240, or writing to the Red Bank Regional School District, 101 Ridge Road, Little Silver NJ 07739, attention of Ms. Orrigo.
If possible, please include contact information for the nominee, including address, phone number, and e-mail address.
