WEST ORANGE, NJ - West Orange High School hosted its third annual Bowling for Scholarship Dollars event at Eagle Rock Lanes on Saturday night, Feb. 13, where teachers and parents of WOHS students teamed up to raise money for scholarships for the Class of 2016.

“With the rising costs of college, I wanted to raise money for my graduating students at WOHS,” said WOHS Principal Hayden Moore. “I thought this would be a great night for adults to come out and have fun, while fundraising at the same time.”

He added, “Eagle Rock Lanes has been a staple in West Orange for as long as I can remember. I tried to choose a local venue that all can support at the same time. What’s more fun than bowling with bumpers?”

“While only adults 21 and older were allowed to attend, that doesn’t mean they couldn’t play like kids again,” he said.

Admission for the event was $30 per person, and 50/50 raffle tickets were $10 per sleeve.

“Last year we raised $5,000,” said school secretary Debi Zarro. “This year we are hoping to raise at least $3,000.”

Some other familiar faces among the crowd included WOHS Vice Principal Annette Towson and Pleasantdale Elementary School principle Dr. Joann Pollara.

“It’s really great to see all these people and families I’ve known for so many years,” said resident Sharon Scalora. “It is really important to help raise money for the scholarships.”

All seniors are invited to fill out applications for scholarships.

“For a high school senior to be eligible to benefit from this fundraiser, they need to fill out the West Orange Scholarship Fund Application,” said Moore. “The rest is determined by the selection committee, which consists of an objective board of trustees. This online application will be listed on the guidance website.”

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
