The Lucky Student Of The Week – Hometown View

Little did we know when we started the WOBM/Gateway Toyota Student of the Week program in 1996 that it would become an annual effort to salute the top senior students in Ocean County high schools. 

Toms River South High School
Toms River Schools

Yet that’s just what it’s become as over 16 years we have honored nearly 600 students from Jackson to Tuckerton in weekly tributes on 92.7 WOBM during the school year.  The students are selected by the schools themselves and are usually standouts in academics, athletics, music, leadership and the community.  In addition their work ethic, sense of morality and ability to get along with others make them ideal representatives of their school.

Each of this year’s 38 weekly honorees received a framed certificate and one of them is going to receive a $1000 college scholarship.  That will be determined at 8:20 this morning when Mike Dowd, General Sales Manager at Gateway Toyota in Toms River joins me live in the studio.  Mike will randomly draw out one name to receive the $1000 from Gateway and WOBM.

Barnegat- Brittany Elasser                      Amanda Glowacki
