New Jersey Education Foundation Partnership (NJEFP) is pleased to announce North Hunterdon Education Foundation (NHEF) has won the 2019 “Outstanding Education Foundation Program” award for their College Bound Programs. NJEFP is a statewide organization dedicated to enhancing public education in New Jersey by growing and strengthening local education foundations* through education, training, collaboration, and advocacy.
College Bound Programs is a signature program of NHEF. NHEF created the program to help North Hunterdon High School students and their families achieve success when selecting and applying to colleges. NHEF brings nearly 100 college recruiters to the high school campus each year, instituted “parent chats” after Guidance Department information nights to help close the information gap for parents on the college search process, administers mock interview sessions for students, brings in college admissions personnel to counsel seniors regarding college essays, funds college visits, and provides a common application essay writing workshop each summer.
NJEFP also announced winners in the following categories:
- Outstanding Education Foundation/Large – Morris Education Foundation
- Outstanding Education Foundation/Small – Ocean City Education Foundation
- Outstanding Achievement in Fundraising – Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence
- Outstanding Partner/Funder – Lawrence Township Education Foundation (ETS)
- Outstanding Partner/Superintendent – Hoboken Public Education Foundation (Dr. Christine Johnson)
“We are privileged to see all of the exceptional work being done by education foundations throughout the state,” notes NJEFP President Randy Davis. “These awards provide an opportunity for more people to understand the tremendous impact education foundations are making in New Jersey each and every day. NJEFP is especially proud to provide this award to NHEF for their noteworthy efforts to advance public education in the North Hunterdon-Voorhees Regional High School District.”
The award-winning education foundations were selected by a committee of judges comprised of NJEFP partners who are also national and state leaders in the education foundation community, including: Trudy Doyle, immediate past President, NJEFP and retired Executive County Superintendent; Shawn Gillon, Treasurer, NJEFP and CPA/Partner, Withum; Robin Callahan, Executive Director, National School Foundation Association; Tracy Burger, Associate Director, Consortium of Florida Education Foundations; and, Rita Nini, Manager, Community Relations, Educational Testing Service (ETS)**.
