Risa Clay began her career at RBR as a student assistance counselor and later established The SOURCE, RBR’s School Based Youth Services Program. She also created the award-winning ELL program as its supervisor. In conjunction with her Hispanic students’ improvement and success, she founded a scholarship funded with private donations to enable ELL students to attend college. She later ascended to Vice Principal and then Principal of the high school.

Upon receiving her award, Clay stated, “Throughout the 22 years I have worked at RBR, I have been blessed to know generations of students and their families. They never cease to amaze me with their resilience by refusing to be defined by circumstance, statistics or convention… I am blessed to work in a school rich in diversity; this choice has enriched my life immeasurably.”

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
