The Randolph Education Foundation (REF) in partnership with the Rotary Club of Randolph plans to host the sixth annual Randolph Rock Stars Celebration and Fundraiser to honor twelve township “Rock Stars” on Thur., Nov. 3, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Meadow Wood Manor in Randolph.
The cocktail party will honor Randolph’s educators of the year and six members of the community who support education and youth in the township.
The Educators of the Year are: Martel Roberts of Randolph High School; Rio Clemente of Randolph Middle School; Natalies Ernstes of Shongum Elementary School; Maureen Frio of Fernbrook Elementary School; Janice Sgalia-Friedland of Ironia Elementary School; and Marisa Caruso of Center Grove Elementary School.
The Community Leaders of the Year are: Alfredo Matos, school board member of the year; Walter Curioni, administrator of the year; Evelyn Hammeran, community volunteer of the year; Rob Schneiderman, business person of the year; Kristen Sisco, student volunteer of the year; and Dave Nicholais, Rotarian of the year.
The evening will feature dinner, drinks, live music, door prizes and the raffle of a diamond necklace designed and donated by John Herold Jewelers. Tickets for the event can be purchased on the REF’s website www.randolpheducationfoundation.org. Star Cards are also available on the website. For a $5 donation, the REF will send a personal note to any teacher, staff member, or administrator in the district to let them know they have made a difference in a child’s life. Raffle tickets will be available prior to the event at John Herold Jewelers in Randolph. They will also be sold during the event.
“We are happy to bring the Randolph community together for the sixth time, to celebrate our wonderful educators of the year and six community members who make a difference in our town,” said Margaret Clark, REF president. “The funds raised with this event will allow us to create new opportunities for nontraditional, innovative ways to teach and learn in the Randolph schools.”
