MILLBURN, NJ - Millburn High School seniors Amy Nadel and Rachel Novick have been named the 2017 recipients of The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters’ “Give a Boost” Award, presented by Investors Bank. The awards of $1,000 each were announced during the MHS Academic Awards ceremony on June 8 and were presented to the seniors by Boosters President Jennifer Baer.

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 Boosters, which has had a 35-year relationship with Investors Bank, was the recipient of a grant from the Investors Foundation ( this past Spring. The grant has enabled the Boosters to expand the “Give-A-Boost” award program, for which the Bank is now the presenter.

Ms. Novick, who is headed to Washington University in St. Louis, is a 2017 National Merit Scholarship finalist and a recipient the AP Scholar with Distinction Award.  She was selected for a two-year term to raise school policy concerns of students with the Millburn Township Board of Education.
