The American Hebrew Academy (AHA) announced this week that Robin Tassler of Paramus was inducted into their Honor Society.
The American Hebrew Academy Honor Society is an international honor society that acknowledges exceptional 8th and 9th grade students, like Robin, who have demonstrated excellence in academics, athletics, the arts, leadership and service to their communities. The Honor Society is modeled after the National Honor Society, receiving recommendations, applicant questionnaires and transcripts in an effort to identify the most outstanding young Jewish students in the US and beyond.
Robin is an outstanding scholar and athlete, who devotes much of her time to Tikkum Olam. Her favorite school subjects are history and Tanach. She is a varsity softball player and basketball team manager. She works on both her school's yearbook and newspaper, and has been a winner of the Kaplun Essay Contest for her writing skills. Robin is a volunteer with the Friendship Circle, an organization for children with special needs.
"To be named a member of the American Hebrew Academy Honor Society is a great achievement," said Mark Spielman, Director of the Honor Society. "We look forward to meeting each of the honorees and following their successes as they make great contributions to our society."
Robin will be able to compete for five $20,000 annual merit based scholarships to attend the American Hebrew Academy.
