Each year since 2008, the Atlantic Highlands Teachers’ Association has awarded a former Atlantic Highlands Elementary School student who is graduating a $1,000 scholarship to assist with his/her college tuition.  The scholarship is given to a student who plans to pursue a college education in teaching or service (nursing, social work, etc).  This year’s recipient is Paige Huff who will be attending Monmouth University to pursue a nursing degree.

The scholarship was started to honor Robin Vaccarelli, a teacher at AHES who passed away in 2007.  Mrs. Vaccarelli’s colleagues felt it was important to keep her enthusiasm for education and students in the fore.  The Atlantic Highlands teachers created the Robin Vaccarelli Scholarship Fund for this purpose with the emphasis on assisting a student who is pursuing a career in education or another helping profession.  In addition, the RVSF awards the “Student of the Year” prize to a sixth grader at Atlantic Highlands Elementary and assists with defraying the cost of the Camp Bernie trip for a student whose family needs assistance. 

The teachers sponsor fund raisers each year to support the scholarship.  If you’d like to make a donation to the Robin Vaccarelli Scholarship Fund, please contact Susan Evans at:  sevans@ahes.k12.nj.us
