On July 31, Freehold Township High School’s new alumni sssociation hosted its
first official event – a golf outing at Charleston Springs Golf Course, Millstone Township, with 36 alumni, staff and other friends of the school participating.
For Adam Brusotti, the supervisor of extracurricular activities (SECA) at the high school, it marked the first of what will become regular events for the group, according to a press release.
“The outing was a long time coming,” Brusotti said. “When I became the SECA three years ago, one of my goals was to grow and improve the high school’s relationship with the community. One way I wanted to do that was by connecting with our past, our alumni.
“We move forward from here. The association is already laying the groundwork for next year’s golf outing and we want to host a 5K in the fall,” Brusotti said.
In addition to increasing the membership of the new alumni association, high school administrators are also looking to collect recommendations for alumni to be considered for the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame.
“We would like to get more distinguished alumni nominations from the community since we have thousands of Freehold Township alumni out there. These past students are doing amazing things we may not know about and they should be considered for this honor,” Brusotti said.
Brusotti is the contact person for the alumni association and the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. He may be reached at email@example.com and welcomes contact about either initiative, according to the press release.
Alumni sending emails to join the alumni association should include their name (maiden name, where applicable), year of graduation, and activities involved in during high school.
Nominations for the Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame should include a resume for the nominee. Brusotti encouraged members of what he calls the “Patriot Nation” to get in touch with the high school.
“The hope is that the word spreads. We have alumni coast to coast and I am sure internationally. But once a Patriot, always a Patriot. You can always go home again,” he said.
