Rep. Sherrill Announces 2023 Heroes of NJ-11


PARSIPPANY — Representative Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) announced today the 25 members of the NJ-11 community chosen to be honored as 2023 Heroes. 

Residents were encouraged to nominate everyday heroes in their lives to show that our community is incredibly grateful for all of their work. There was an outpouring of submissions from the community and Heroes were selected based on the information provided by the individual who nominated them. All 2023 Heroes live or work in NJ-11, and they will receive a congressional certificate recognizing their contributions to the community. 

“Each year, my office and I receive so many incredible submissions for our yearly Heroes program. This year is no different. I am so moved by the amazing people throughout our district making a difference in the lives of others. This year’s list of 25 amazing heroes includes teachers, community leaders, volunteers, healthcare providers, caregivers, and more. All are inspiring citizens whose stories should warm everyone’s hearts this holiday season.
