In the fall, students at H.B. Whitehorne Middle School will benefit from the expertise of an additional social worker, thanks to a grant from the Mountainside Health Foundation and Principal Yvette McNeal, who applied for the grant. The grant will provide funds for a social worker from Mountainside Hospital to offer small-group counseling and workshops and training for students and faculty on teen issues, according to Superintendent Charles Sampson at a recent Board of Education meeting.

The foundation, formerly known as the Mountainside Hospital Foundation, is a charitable group that supports health and wellness programs in Montclair and surrounding communities.
