LITTLE SILVER, NJ - On May 10 over 40 Red Bank Regional High School (RBR) students were celebrated for their stellar academic accomplishments at the school during its annual Encourage and “A” Program and celebratory dinner, sponsored by the RBR SOURCE.
One by one, students were called up to receive a variety of gifts including gift certificate to a favored teenage retail store, Amazon Echos, Beats headphones, lap tops and even flatscreen TVs. . The value of the gift ascended with the number of A’s the students earned in their third marking period this school year.
All awards are provided by the RBR SOURCE Foundation, a 501 (C)3 non-profit corporation, through their many fund-raising efforts. The SOURCE is RBR’s School-Based Youth Services Program whose mission is to remove all obstacles that impede students’ academic success. Its services range from quality mental health counseling to learning support initiatives. This is accomplished by offering services free of charge to students and their families including; individual, group and family counseling, preventative medical and dental care, academic support, scholarship opportunities, and recreational and cultural events.
