Mahwah Students Raise 'Jersey Strong' Money

The council recently sent money to Governor Christie to aid in post-Sandy Jersey Shore relief

On the eve of Governor Chris Christie’s State of the State address commenting on the ongoing impact of Hurricane Sandy on the Garden State, a group of Mahwah students has worked to help keep the state “Jersey Srong.”

Mahwah High School Student Council Advisor, and MHS History teacher, Barbara Fernicola submitted a photo of her council students with a $1300 check they collected and donated to New Jersey Sandy victims.

Fernicola explained what her students did:

“The Mahwah High School Student Council raised $1300 dollars since Hurricane Sandy, which we sent to Governor Christie to help the victims down at the shore. As a school, we conducted bake sales, T-Shirt Sales, and even had our student council members sing during lunch for donations. We hope this money will help whomever it can and that this donation really makes a difference in the lives of New Jersey residents. We are Jersey Strong!”

The photo above is of the council’s executive officers Jeryl Lippe (Corresponding Secretary), Borys Marchankas (Treasurer), Kevin Kim (President), Brandon Schwartz (Senior Class Treasurer), and Lily Hurley (Recording Secretary).
