Kennedy, Nishi, Skole, and Stoner were the only students chosen in the county to organize two different workshops.

Kellman Brown Academy third-grader Gavin Gershon placed second in the third-grade category of Mathnasium’s TriMathalon’s national tie-breaker competition. Gershon placed first in the third-grade category in the original Mathnasium TriMathalon, which qualified him to compete in the tie-breaker against other first-place winners from around the country. He received several prizes, including a trophy, a six-month membership to Mathnasium and money donated to his school.

Haddonfield Memorial Sophmore Class
Haddonfield Memorial High School’s sophomore class raised and donated $4,221.64 for Go4theGoal, a non-profit organization that helps children affected by cancer reach their goals. The sophomore class held several fundraisers to raise money during the school’s spirit week, and chose to support the foundation because of the help it gave to sophomore and pediatric cancer survivor, Jason Garstkiewicz, when he was first diagnosed.
