The SCC held its 19th Scholar Leader recognition banquet on March 25 at Anthony’s Ocean View. Forty-four scholar leaders, two from each SCC member school and selected by his/her principal, were recognized for outstanding scholarship and leadership in their respective school and external communities.
Here is what they were recognized for:
Hannah Bercovici

A recipient of the University of Rochester’s Frederick Douglas and Susan B. Anthony Award, Hannah has demonstrated a commitment to understanding and addressing difficult social issues.

A dedicated leader outside of school, Hannah is an Emergency First Responder and Rescue Diver in the community. She is a regular participant in the local Relay for Life, and has participated in the Walk to Cure Alzheimer’s.

She has amassed over 100 community service hours while at Amity Regional and is grateful for the loving support of her family in all of her endeavors. A leader in the classroom, on the athletic field (field hockey) and in the community, Hannah possesses the qualities of a true citizen.
TJ Meehan
TJ is a member of Amity’s Science Research, and has won several awards for his independent research projects. Last summer, he conducted research in Yale University’s Robotics Lab. For his Eagle Scout project, Thomas renovated the Howard Brooks Trail and the surrounding areas of the Racebrook Tract in Orange.
To accomplish this project, Thomas raised more than $2,000 and personally removed substantial amounts
of overgrowth and poisonous plants, while adding over 115 new plants and trees. He created a new map of the trail and power-washed benches with the help of the Orange Volunteer Fire Department. In total, the project consisted of over 725 man hours of work.
Unfortunately, he was not able to attend the banquet and is missing from the photograph.
