Announcing RBHS Chancellor Awards
This will be the inaugural year for the RBHS Chancellor Awards. We have created these awards to acknowledge the extraordinary work of faculty and staff at RBHS. Awardees will be given a plaque and will be invited to a celebratory dinner with guests in the fall. Our hope is that by then we can do in person, so it will be a double celebration, rather than virtually!

The nomination period is open until May 11, 2020 . Please visit this webpage for specific details regarding award categories, eligibility and nomination requirements. The awardees will be announced in July. If you have any questions, please contact RBHS Faculty Affairs at 973-972-7595 or
