Old Main Brick Award
May 3rd, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — May 1, 2013
Rumson – The University of Arizona has announced that Rumson-Fair Haven Regional
High School has been selected from among all New Jersey high schools as a winner of
this year’s Old Main Brick Award.
The Old Main Brick Award was established in 2011 and modeled after the Arizona
Cup Award. To select the winners, a panel at the University of Arizona analyzes data
from the current sophomore class to determine how well students from specific states
performed during their freshman year. The Old Main Brick Award is then given to a
sending high school attended by three or more students with the highest cumulative
GPAs from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, New Jersey, New York,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington.
“The University of Arizona is fortunate to attract the very best high school students
from Arizona and all around the country,” said Rafael Meza, Director of Undergraduate
Recruitment. “We look forward to the continued academic success of these great
students and we thank them for enriching our Wildcat community.”
In addition to an engraved brick recognizing the success of its alum, RFH will receive
a one-time $2,000 scholarship to be awarded to a student planning to attend the
University of Arizona.
Over 30,000 students are currently enrolled at the University of Arizona, a four-year
public research university located in Tucson. Founded in 1885, it was the first university
established in the state of Arizona.
