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
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
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
