Each year since 2008, the Atlantic Highlands Teachers’
Association has awarded a $1,000 scholarship to a former
Atlantic Highlands Elementary School student. This year’s
recipient is Brea Carlstrom who will be attending Rutgers
School of Nursing. Congratulations and best of luck, Brea.

The scholarship was started to honor Robin Vaccarelli, a
teacher at AHES who passed away in 2007. Mrs. Vaccarelli’s colleagues felt it was important to keep her enthusiasm for education and students in the fore. The Atlantic Highlands teachers created the Robin Vaccarelli Scholarship Fund for this purpose with the emphasis on assisting a student who is pursuing a career in education or another helping profession.

In addition, the RVSF awards the “Student of the Year” prize to a sixth grader at Atlantic Highlands Elementary and assists with defraying the cost of the Camp Bernie trip for a student whose family needs assistance.

The teachers sponsor fund raisers each year to support
the scholarship. If you’d like to make a donation to the Robin Vaccarelli Scholarship Fund, please contact Susan Evans at: sevans@ahes.k12.nj.us.
