Scholastic Boosters Announce “Give a Boost” Award Winner

May 20, 2014 at 4:37 PM

MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn High School senior Matthew Garawitz was named the 2014 recipient of The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters’ “Give a Boost” Award of $1,000. The award is to be announced during the MHS Academic Awards ceremony on Thursday, May 29 and was presented to Mr. Garawitz by Boosters President John Ward, Treasurer Fred Soule and Board Members Fred Coombs and Jennifer Baer earlier in the month.

The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters created the “Give a Boost” Award in 2009, to be given to a Millburn High School senior with an excellent academic record who has shown diverse academic, community and personal interests and accomplishments.The award selection is made by the Boosters’ Board with the assistance of the MHS Guidance Department.

Mr. Garawitz will be attending Pennsylvania State University. He has been a member of the high school’s mentorship program, helping Hartshorn School students with homework and afterschool activities. He has been a swimmer on the MHS Varsity Swim Team since freshman year, as well as swimming for the Summit Seals Swim Team. Matt has also been on the Mock Trial Team since 9th grade, and he says that interest may ultimately lead him to law school. He has been a swim instructor and lifeguard at the Summit YMCA through his high school years.

The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters have provided educational grants to township students since 1947, assisting some 975 students to close the shortfall in their college funding package, with awards totaling more than $1,000,000. Individual Booster grants, which are based on demonstrated financial need, have ranged, in recent years, from $750 to $2,000 for the school year.

Students who reside in Millburn Township may apply for a grant for any or all of their years of post-high school, undergraduate education.

The Scholastic Boosters are now accepting applications for grants for the 2014-2015-college year. To find out more about the grants, including eligibility criteria, and/or to obtain a grant application form, visit their new web site at
www.msh-scholasticboosters.org or write to P.O. Box 42, Millburn, N.J. 07041.   Students may also obtain a form at the Millburn High School Guidance Office.  Applications must be completed and submitted no later than June 30, 2014.

Boosters President John Ward explained, “Unlike government and private loans, The Boosters’ support need not be repaid. Every student—and their family—who receives a Boosters Grant has already been willing to put himself or herself under considerable financial obligations that will follow them well past their college years.”

“Funding for Boosters grants comes from our annual campaign,” he added. “The Boosters continues rely on the generosity of this community to help these worthy students bridge some of that shortfall and lessen their financial burdens.” Donations to The Boosters can be made through the mail or directly through the Web site.
