ROBBINSVILLE, NJ– At its 25th Annual Scholar/Athlete Awards Program and Luncheon, held recently at Pines Manor in Edison, NJ, the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) honored 364 high school student-athletes with a total of $201,000 in college scholarships. Four of the students received $2,500 scholarships from the New Jersey Devils National Hockey League franchise.
Three students who were recognized reside in Morristown. Callie Sundin (Morristown High School) was recognized for field hockey and lacrosse. Keegan Heher (Morristown Beard) was recognized for soccer, girls hockey and lacrosse. Dillon O'Loughlin (Delbarton) was recognized for winter track and spring track.
“This luncheon has developed into a time-honored tradition that provides us an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the academic achievements of so many student-athletes,” says Larry White, the NJSIAA’s executive director. “We wish each of our scholarship recipients the best of luck as they embark on their future endeavors.”
Under the ongoing scholar-athlete program, each NJSIAA member high school has the opportunity to choose one senior student as its scholar-athlete of the year. Each selected student who attends the luncheon event is then awarded, at minimum, a $500 college scholarship in recognition of their accomplishments.
In the past quarter century – since 1994 – NJSIAA has honored 7,700 New Jersey high school students and distributed more than $2.1 million in college scholarships through its scholar program.
