RBR BUC Backer Foundation Bequeaths over $5,500 for Teacher Grants

As the Red Bank Regional High School District (RBR) prepares for the new school year, students will benefit from over $5,500 in grants made available to RBR teachers through the BUC Backer Foundation’s teacher-grant program.

Each year the RBR BUC Backer Foundation accepts applications from teachers in the district to fund programs or initiatives that are not usually met within the regular school budget.

RBR BUC Backer President Claire Harbeck Izzo states, “It is part of our mission to support all aspects of student education and development. In the grant process, we seek to accept proposals that are great ideas and positively impact the broad base of students.”

This year’s grants were to:


  •  Brendan McGoldrick, Athletic Department - for Ironman heart rate monitors for boy’s and girl’s cross country and track and field teams    

  • Karina Tedeschi, World Language Department - for 4 days participation at American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language Convention & Expo Conference in Tennessee
