Annual Awards Reception

ANNUAL AWARDS CEREMONY Each spring, ELC hosts an awards ceremony and reception to honor individuals and organizations for their commitment to public education. The reception is also an important fundraising event; contributions and proceeds from ticket sales help maintain ELC as a champion of educational equity. Two awards will be presented at the reception: the Morheuser Humanitarian Award and the Education Justice Award. The Morheuser Humanitarian Award honors dedication to the advancement of the educational rights of students in New Jersey’s public schools and is presented in memory of the late Marilyn Morheuser, ELC’s long-time Executive Director and advocate for education justice. This year’s recipient is Vincent Giordano, former Executive Director of the New Jersey Education Association.      The Education Justice Award honors outstanding service and commitment to advancing equal educational opportunity for public school children across the U.S. This year’s award will be given to Pedro Noguera, Professor of Education and Executive Director of the Metropolitan Center at NYU.        For more information about the event, please contact Cynthia Triminio-Batista, Fundraising & Event Coordinator, at 973.624.1815 Ext. 12 or
