Carol served two terms, 2002-2005 and 2008-2014, as a Board of Education Member and was the Board president in 2014. Carol faithfully supports REF in their activities and hasn't missed volunteering at a Holiday Bazaar in 16 years.

David Boyne provides township-side support to our students. Dave is a member of Township Council for the past 8 years. Dave has served on many Township Committees including Open Space, Planning Board, and the Municipal Utilities Authority. Dave's service on the Recreation Committee supported Open Space for Children's recreation activities and most recently Blakely Park. Dave also supported and advocated for playgrounds in Town Center.

Dave also served on the RHS 2008 Post Prom Committee, the Board of Education's Community Relations Committee, and has been an avid contributor and supporter of the PTA,REF, and the RHS PTSA.

Sal LoPresti and Mannino's 3 helps boost the education from the business world. The owner of Mannino's restaurant, LoPresti uses some of his profits to donate to local school-related causes like the Post Prom party, robotics club, Sports Banquets, and a myriad of school socials. Even though his business is in Hamilton, Sal is the first job for many of Robbinsville's students. Sal said his outlook is to give back to the community that supports his business.

Recently married, Sal and his wife, Deniela, do not have children in the district but Sal's statement that his "Outlook is to give back to the community that supports your business" reflects the contributions and support Sal gives to the students of Robbinsville.

The evening's format began at 6 PM with a Hors d'oeuvres reception.. The recognition of the honorees was followed by a buffet supper and casino event. The event was held at John Henry's Stone Terrace in Hamilton.
