ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – West Essex High School field hockey and softball’s Amanda Garofalo was recently one of 365 high school students to be recognized by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) at its annual scholar-athlete luncheon for their achievements. The NJSIAA awarded a total of $203,000 in college scholarships.

Under the ongoing scholar-athlete program, each NJSIAA member school—nearly every high school in the state—has the opportunity to select one senior student as its scholar-athlete of the year. Students who attend the luncheon event are then awarded, at minimum, a $500 college scholarship in recognition of their accomplishments.

“These student-athletes worked extremely hard in the classroom and in their respective sports to stand out from their peers,” said Steve Timko, NJSIAA executive director. “This luncheon is our way of applauding their efforts and wishing them well as they begin college.”
