RAHWAY — The 35th annual Union County Interscholastic Athletic Conference (UCIAC) Scholar-Athlete Awards Dinner, held at The Westwood Banquet Center on May 9, each year recognizes two high school seniors – one boy and one girl – from each member high school whose academic and athletic careers have been exemplary. From Rahway High School, Nicholas Heim, ranked first in the Class of 2012, and Katrina Plowman, ranked fourth, were the students chosen.
Heim was Special Teams Captain in Varsity Football this year as well as Team Captain in Varsity Winter and Spring Track And Field. A member of National Honor Society, he received Rahway High School’s AP Star of Excellence award last August. Besides sports, Heim participates in the Social Action Club, the Math Club, and Heroes and Cool Kids, a mentoring program; in addition, he is a student representative to the Rahway High School Action Team. In the summer of 2010, Heim was named Rahway Parks and Recreation Male Counselor of the Year. This fall, he will be attending Case Western Reserve University.
Plowman, who heads to Albert Dorman Honors College of NJIT to study engineering, is also a member of the National Honor Society as well as the Italian National Honor Society. She has been an All-County & All-State Varsity Soccer Player all four years, Captain of Varsity Soccer her senior year as well as a RYSA Soccer Referee. She is Co-President of Student Government and has been on the Principal’s Advisory Committee the past three years. Plowman achieved black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do during grade 10 and has been a member of the Outdoors Club the past three years.
Rahway High School commends both these fine young people and wishes them well in their future.
