Marlboro High Student Receives Scholarship for Organ Donation Advocacy

MARLBORO-COLTSNECK PATCH | Carly Baldwin

Blake Rogolsky of Morganville received a $5,000 scholarship to attend the University of Michigan in the fall.



Marlboro, NJ - On Thursday night, Blake Rogolsky of Morganville received a $5,000 scholarship from the Betsy Niles Scholarship Fund as part of the NJ Sharing Network Foundation, a group that facilitates organ donation in New Jersey.

Rogolsky, who graduated from Marlboro High School this past spring and will attend the University of Michigan in the fall, watched her father suffer with genetic heart disease. After he received a heart transplant, she dedicated her life to organ donation. She became an NJ Sharing Network state ambassador at 13 years old. She has participated in the 5K as a team captain for three years and she started a “Donate Life Club” at Marlboro High School to educate her peers about organ donation. Rogolsky organized awareness events and activities, such as inviting a kidney transplant surgeon to talk at the school and coordinated a balloon release to honor organ donors and their families. The club expanded the curriculum of the driver’s education club at Marlboro High School to educate 16-17 year old students about organ donation. Continue reading
