WESTFIELD, NJ — TAP into Westfield’s popular Athlete of the Week series is now sponsored by Ron Bansky and Associates Allstate Agency.

Owner Ron Bansky, a Westfield resident, is already known for the role he plays in the local community. He recently received the Agency Hands in the Community Award for his commitment to helping others.

"It was a natural for my agency to be involved with Tap into Westfield's WHS Athlete of the Week program,” Bansky said. “We've been supporting student athletes at WHS for several years through our partnership with the Westfield Boosters Association and now, in addition to that, we can recognize the outstanding achievements of Westfield's student athletes."
