Millburn High School senior Sandra Stein was named the 2012 recipient of The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters’ “Give a Boost” Award of $1,000. The award was announced during the MHS Academic Awards ceremony on May 31 and was presented to Ms. Stein by Boosters President John Ward.

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 Stein will be attending the University of Miami, where she is planning to major in Art History. Stein has been active in sports during all four years of high school, playing Varsity Lacrosse and Field Hockey for three years, and Varsity Track for senior year (cross country/winter track/spring track). She participated in the School Ambassadors (senior/freshman mentoring) program. She is a volunteer in a nursing home and works at Splurge Bakery, coordinating children’s birthday parties at the bakery on weekends.

As President and Founder of the Running for a Cause Club, Stein told board members Rick Sacks, Fred Soule, and John Ward that she hopes to use their grant money to support her passion and start a similar club in college.

The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters, which has been providing educational grants to township students for 65 years, is now accepting applications for grants for the 2012-2013 college year.  Since 1947, some 950 students, trying to close the shortfall in their college funding package, have received awards from The Boosters totaling more than $1,000,000.

Individual Booster grants, which based on demonstrated financial need, have ranged, in recent years, from $750 to $2,000 for the school year. 

Residents who would like to learn more about The Scholastic Boosters and obtain a grant application form should visit their new Web site www.msh-scholasticboosters.org  or write to P.O. Box 42, Millburn, N.J. 07041.  They also can obtain a form at the Millburn High School Guidance Office.  Applications must be completed and submitted no later than June 25, 2012.

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.”
