Oak Hill Academy Recipe for Successful Student Involvement & Mentoring of Future Teen Leaders

For over two decades, Oak Hill Academy in Lincroft has brought an enthusiastic group of 8th graders to the Red Bank CROP Hunger Walk. These students with the encouragement of their student council advisor, Mrs. Linda Vacca, plan a CROP Rally of their own in the form of an assembly which they present to the entire school. They perform a skit, they sell CROP stickers to raise money and  make posters telling the story of what CROP Walks can do to help feed the hungry locally and around the world. They enter our annual ART for CROP Contest and twice in recent years a young OHA  student, Aron Weiner, won a first place ribbon. Faculty and parents support the students in all of their efforts. The students get sponsors and walk together for the 5 mile walk with friends and family. Take a look at this great Oak Hill group photo. Other photos show the skit, posters advertising the sticker sale and an Oak Hill family enjoying apples and ice cream at the end of the walk. When these 8th grade student council leaders graduate they go on to area high schools and many become CROP Walk Teen Leaders. This helps our local CROP WALK continue to grow and as we work toward Enough For All!
