For the past ten years, the Red Bank Regional High School, through its Education Foundation, has observed a warm tradition of honoring its most distinguished alumni. The honor includes an invitation to visit our high school where they tour the facility with our principal and meet our faculty and students. The tour culminates in a special reception for the honorees where our students celebrate their lives in prose composed from submitted biographies. A special luncheon is held in their honor. Diners and their guests are serenaded by the VPA instrumental student majors. This year’s program will take place on Friday, April 26, 2013.
To date, nearly 100 individuals have received this honor including, successful business men and women, philanthropic community members, long standing public servants, community leaders, exceptional Red Bank Regional educators and tireless volunteers. Their names are inscribed on a handsome plaque hanging near the school’s entrance for posterity. The nomination for this honor has come to us, primarily by word of mouth through networking among our foundation committee members. We are hoping that members of the community may know of someone truly worthy of this honor and may chose to nominate that person for distinguished alumni consideration.
The criteria for submission are that the nominee had graduated from Red Bank
Regional High School (RBR) at least 15 years ago or from its predecessor, Red Bank High School, which was located at the current Red Bank Middle School property. Nominees should be role models to our young people and have distinguished themselves in their careers (making some unique contribution) and served the communities in which they live with honor and significant commitment. With a rich history that dates back to 1906 there are potentially many distinguished alumni to honor. We hope the public will aid us in this worthy endeavor.
All nominations should be sent to the Special Assistant to the Superintendent, Ms.
Debbie Orrigo, by emailing- firstname.lastname@example.org, calling 732-842-8000 ext. 1240, or writing to the Red Bank Regional School District, 101 Ridge Road, Little Silver NJ 07739, attention of Ms. Orrigo. If possible, please include contact information for the nominee, including address, phone number, and email address. The deadline for nominations is January 4, 2013.
