Millburn High School senior Krista Young was named the 2013 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 30 and was presented to Ms. Young by Boosters President John Ward, Treasurer Fred Soule and Board Member Fred Coombs 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.

Miss Young will be attending the New York University Shanghai, as a member of its inaugural class. Krista is fluent in three languages, Spanish, French, and Chinese.  She serves as one of the high school's World Language Ambassadors, and tutors students in foreign language.  Miss Young is founder and co-president and of the Latino Club, and Editor-in chief of the Chinese Literary Magazine.  Krista is also a member of our Varsity spring track team, and works part-time at Haagen-Dazs.

The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters have provided educational grants to township students since 1947, assisting some 960 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.

The Scholastic Boosters are now accepting applications for grants for the 2013-2014 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 can obtain a form at the Millburn High School Guidance Office.  Applications must be completed and submitted no later than June 26, 2013.

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.”
