The Red Bank Public Library has digitized the yearbooks of the former Red Bank High School and its successor, Red Bank Regional High, from a broad swath of the 20th century.
Forty editions of the annual known as the Round Table and, later, the Log, chronicling changes in hairstyles, fashions and media from 1922 to 1980, can now be downloaded, paged through and word-searched via the Internet, minus the musty aroma.
Four-hundred-fifty-four students and teachers at Red Bank Catholic gathered in groovy casualwear Wednesday morning in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the “largest gathering of people wearing tie-dye.”
The event was a fundraiser, via $10 t-shirt sales, for the Make A Wish Foundation of New Jersey and dreamed up by senior Kaitlin Rogers of Allenhurst, above. The previous record was 250, she said; RBC’s must still be certified by Guinness.
The school’s annual carnival for Make A Wish, which enables wish fulfillment for young children with serious medical conditions, will be held this year on Saturday, May 16.

The exhibit, put together by volunteers from the public library, showcases images taken by RBHS photography teacher Anthony Trufolo. The last display, assembled in June, featured prom pix from Trufolo’s collection. Library director Elizabeth McDermott says the next one, scheduled for January, will spotlight theatrical productions at the school, which merged into a regional school district in 1975.

“They wanted to look like movie stars, not the sexpot-of-the-day,” she said.
“Oh man, she is beautiful,” said Jerome ‘Bird’ Hicks, as he studied an elegant young woman – ignoring the fact that the woman already had a date. “I am in love.”
Their sentiments were prompted by the an array of pictures from Red Bank High School proms from the 1950s now in the lobby display case at borough hall.

Red Bank Charter School Intern
A creative writing major, Sophia has built up her applications by serving as the editor-in-chief of the school newspaper. She been been active in many clubs, participates in the National Honor Society, plays sports, does volunteer work and tutors.
Sophia says it’s best to stick with activities like these for all four years of high school to show your commitment and dedication to learning, and show how diversified you are, which colleges like to see.
Still, Sophia has found the process of applying for colleges time-consuming and challenging.
“The applications are stressful because it can be expensive, having to pay to put an application in at a school,” she says.

The newest addition to Rumson-Fair Haven High School’s extracurricular club list might never have gotten off the ground were it not for a tray of burned pizza rolls.
“I was making pizza rolls,” senior Jackie Bruckmann tells PieHole. “I put them in the oven, and they burned so quickly I said to myself, ‘Oh my God. I’m going to college soon and I need to learn how to cook.’”
