Kirstin was honored with the award on May 19 at the 26th Annual Scholar-Athlete Luncheon, located at the Pines Manor in Edison. NJSIAA has given more than 8,000 scholar-athletes awards and scholarships since the program’s start. The association selects one graduating senior from each school in New Jersey to be honored each year. “It was really awesome to be recognized for my hard work along with some of the other impressive student-athletes from across New Jersey,” Kirstin said of her $500 scholarship and recognition. Kirstin will be attending the University of Texas at Austin next fall. She is pictured with the award, her coach Lia Kunnapas’09, IHA social studies teacher, and her parents.
