This award was presented to our school in their efforts to raise awareness and solving the problem of hunger. Several distinguished guests were in attendance to honor our students and school including Carlos Rodriguez and representatives from the Monmouth/Ocean County Food Bank, Mayor Nicol, council members Anne Scott and Frank Garruzzo, Chief Palmer and Sgt.
