Donations sought for Project Graduation One of the many traditions at Northern Highlands Regional High School is the annual Project Graduation celebration. The nationwide activity for new high school graduates was introduced over 15 years ago by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a means of keeping graduating seniors safe from the perils of drinking and driving on the high-risk night of graduation. Project Graduation has evolved into a huge alcoholand-drug- free graduation party planned and executed by a committee of Highlands’ parent volunteers. Planning is currently underway for the Class of 2009. The event will be funded primarily through student assessments and other fundraisers, but due to the high costs of throwing a party for over 250 students in the middle of the night, the committee is looking for the support of local families and businesses. The community has been incredibly generous in the past, which is why this event is always a memorable success. Financial contributions can be mailed to: “Project Graduation 2009,” c/o Bridget Egan, 93 Sheri Drive, Allendale, NJ 07401.
