On August 19, Voorhees High School Principal Ron Peterson completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He was challenged by North Hunterdon High School Principal Richard Bergacs, Ed.D. Mr. Peterson decided to up the ante and said that he would take an extra bucket of ice water for every $100 donated by the fall sports teams and student clubs. Mr. Peterson ended up having six buckets of water poured over his head by athletes from each team that donated. For the sixth bucket, he was joined by the Boys Soccer Team. Mr. Peterson in turn nominated Rick Coppola, Principal of Manasquan High School, Jason Miller, Athletic Director at South Hunterdon High School and a longtime friend from Texas for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Donations were made to www.alsa.org and to https://www.hark-als.org/donate.html. Click this link to see video -

For a second year in a row, the Voorhees High School athletic program has received the NJSIAA Sportsmanship Award for the Skyland Conference-Raritan Division for the 2012-2013 school year.
Voorhees High School was selected for the NJSIAA Sportsmanship Award based on feedback from opponent schools in the Skyland Conference that competed against Voorhees in athletic contests. At the end of each sports season, coaches in each conference in the state are asked to rate their experiences with opposing schools.
