BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ -  Despite Mother Nature’s best efforts, The Berkeley Heights Education Foundation (BHEF) Annual Faculty Basketball game was once again a rousing success, even with a one-week delay due to snow.  The BHEF celebrated its 20th annual March Madness with a sold-out crowd and new sponsor, the Smith Chiropractic Foundation, on Tuesday, March 21, one week later than originally planned.  Teachers and staff represented all of Berkeley Heights' schools in a hard fought game and displayed incredible basketball skills on both teams.  

The evening kicked off with Boy Scout Troop 68 presenting the flag and Columbia Middle School students Kyasia AhKao, Victoria Mauri, Vivien Reed and Abby Miller singing the National Anthem.  

Next were the Mary K. McMillin students performing their school song “We are Stars.” Other game-time entertainment included incredible performances by all three elementary schools and the Columbia Middle School cheerleaders.
