About the Event

The Scholar Athlete program originated with United Way of Northern New Jersey to bring our communities together to celebrate the academic and athletic accomplishments of local high school students. Pass It Along inherited the program in 2014 and has since incorporated a community service component to the program.  High School Seniors from twelve local school districts are nominated by their Principals and Athletic Directors for their hard-work, altruism, and ambition both in the classroom and on the field.
