We Are Only as Strong as We are United: Team Harmony Honored by the State of New Jersey
In continued celebration of Respect Week, we are excited to share that the Senate and General Assembly of New Jersey recognized Team Harmony in a joint resolution. The Randolph High School student organization was honored for their outstanding achievements promoting Morris County’s Stigma-Free campaign, which aims to prevent bullying and embrace diversity. Team Harmony was praised for their songs, skits, dancing, and poetry which educated students on the importance of positive engagement. The resolution added that “New Jersey’s young people who set their goals high, who persevere in the pursuit of those goals, and who reach their desired milestones and accomplish their objectives stand as an example and an inspiration to fellow citizens of all ages.”
Team Harmony is advised by Business Teacher Lisa Holloway and has 35 students. Ms. Holloway along with Co-President Gary Dong, Vice President Kyle Silverstein, Co-Public Relations Officer Eric Wagener, Secretary Olivia Howell, and Patricia Higgins are featured above. Co-President Ellie Wellman, Treasurer Paul Trilling, and Co-Public Relations Officer Dubem Okoye are also student leaders in the organization.
The organization’s theme for the school year is “We are only as strong as we are united.” Team Harmony is currently working on a positivity gallery where inspirational messages from students will be displayed on the bridge going into the RHS commons area. They are also planning to create a video for "National No Name Calling Week" and they will host their annual anti-bullying assembly in the late spring.
We are grateful for the recognition by the state of New Jersey, President of the Senate Mr. Stephen Sweeney, and Speaker of the General Assembly Mr. Craig Coughlin. Thank you Ms. Holloway and Team Harmony for your efforts to make Randolph High School a positive environment for students!
