Stephanie's Story

Stephanie Berman has been gone far longer than she graced the halls of Hightstown High School. But eleven years after Stephanie died in an auto accident, her memory lives on.

“We have never forgotten her and the tears never stop flowing”, says her former field hockey teammate and close friend, Sara Yaeggy. In the season following her death, the field hockey team dedicated the season to the memory of Stephanie Berman. At the very next game, during the coin toss at left field, a blue butterfly darted around Sara, trying to get her attention. The butterfly lightened the mood and helped replace the tears with smiles.

Recently her former teammates dedicated a garden, complete with a beautiful butterfly bush, near the athletic complex of Hightstown High School to honor Stephanie’s short life. For a girl with a passion for working with children and valued team member for field hockey, swimming and gymnastics, it was a wonderful gesture of love and remembrance.

Come join the Berman family as they remember their "elusive butterfly," Stephanie, while at the same time raising money for a great cause, The Hightstown High School Parents Association After-Prom Committee.
