Millburn High School senior Aaron Friedman was named the 2015 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, June 11 and was presented to Mr. Friedman by Boosters President Jennifer Baer, 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.

Mr. Friedman, who will be attending Cornell University next year in their School of Hotel Administration, participates in Princeton Model Congress, forensics, and is the sports-page editor for the school newspaper.  Aaron is also a volunteer for two clubs that are dedicated to mentoring students with special needs, PAIRS and the Friendship Circle.

The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters have provided educational grants to township students since 1947, assisting  more than 1,000 students to close the shortfall in their college funding packages, 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 2015-2016 college year. To find out more about the grants, including eligibility criteria, and/or to obtain a grant application form, visit their web site at www.msh-scholasticboosters.org or write to P.O. Box 42, Millburn, N.J. 07041.  Applicants  also may  obtain a form at the Millburn High School Guidance Office.  Applications must be completed and submitted no later than June 30, 2013.

Boosters President Jennifer Baer 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.
