Press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School
Surrounded by proud coaches and family members during a National Signing Day ceremony on February 1, thirteen student-athletes from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School signed either National Letters of Intent or Commitments to participate in National Collegiate Athletic Association programs next year.
Following is a list of the RFH students and their programs:
The RFH students created colorfully illustrated “big books” that were transported to the orphanage by a grateful Pierre LeRoy, co-founder of the Haitian People’s Support Project. A nationwide shortage of resources is creating a stumbling block for the organization’s goal of increasing literacy rates among Haitian children.
Upon hearing about the shortage of reading materials, the students in Christine Berg’s French II classes and Lauren Thieme’s French IV class took matters into their own hands. They created original story books written in the Haitian children’s native language of French.
