LITTLE SILVER: BIG BUCKS FROM BUC BACKERS

rbrPress release from Red Bank Regional High School

Each year, the fundraising organization known as the RBR BUC Backer Foundation accepts applications from teachers in the Red Bank Regional School District, as a way of financing programs or initiatives that are not usually met within the regular school budget.

As Red Bank Regional High School prepares for the new school year, students will benefit from approximately $40,000 in grants made available to RBR teachers through the BUC Backer Foundation’s teacher-grant program.

“It is part of our mission to support all aspects of student education and development,” explains the foundation’s co-president Carmelina MacPherson. “In the grant process, we seek to accept proposals that are great ideas and positively impact the broad base of students.”

Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Upon approaching Red Bank Regional High School from either Harding Road or Ridge Road, travelers encounter a series of signs reading “Have…You…Got…It?” The question is soon answered by the last sign: “Buc Pride!” …which leads to the front entrance with an even larger sign announcing, “Welcome to BUC Nation, Home of the Buccaneers!”

The eye-catching signage is the first installment in what the new leadership of the BUC Backer Foundation (BBF) plans for the RBR campus; a beautification campaign that will include seasonal plantings, new landscaping designs and signs proclaiming RBR’s status as one of the area’s top-rated schools.
