Student/Partner Alliance Joins the Summit Community

Student/Partner Alliance (S/PA), a local non-profit is happy to become a new “resident” of Summit!   Since 1993, S/PA has been helping low-income high school youth in the greater Newark area get a quality education so that they can attend college.  Three Summit residents serve on S/PA’s Board of Trustees and many other Summit residents already support S/PA students financially and as Mentors.

Emmett Daly, President of the Board and Summit resident, and S/PA co-founder Tom Cash, were recently recognized by New Jersey Monthly Magazine as Garden State Seeds of Hope Awardees, for giving teens an “academic leg up” through the scholarship program.

The schools where S/PA supports students are college-preparatory, nurturing schools, rooted in strong values and community involvement.  In addition to the financial support, each S/PA student is matched with a volunteer ‘mentor’ who has pledged to be that student’s coach or guide throughout high school.  

S/PA has awarded over 1650 scholarships to youth who would have not have been able to afford a quality high school education.  This, in combination with the mentoring aspect of the program, makes Student/Partner Alliance a unique and meaningful way to “give back”.

S/PA continues to recruit new partners, sponsors and mentors in Summit and other nearby towns, to strengthen the amount of support that can be offered NJ inner-city high school students. 

To find out more about S/PA, or to get involved, go to www.studentpartneralliance.org or contact Marianne Busby at mmbusby@studentpartneralliance.org or 908-522-0406.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
