MORRIS COUNTY — The Morris County Vocational School District (MCVSD) held an Awards Recognition Ceremony honoring the achievements of its students, faculty, and staff. Students were presented with scholarships for their hard work and success.

MCVSD Superintendent Scott Moffit opened the ceremony before inviting Morris County Director John Krickus, New Jersey Association of Counties (NJAC) Executive Director John Donnadio, and MCVSD Board of Education President Barbara Dawson to present the first round of scholarships awarded annually by the NJAC Foundation.

“These outstanding students are honored for academic excellence and community involvement. The NJAC Foundation has been awarding these scholarships for many years to county vocational-technical school graduates throughout the state, supporting students’ educational and career goals they have set out to achieve by advancing themselves through college,” Director Krickus said.

Seven students were among the 2023 NJAC scholarship recipients: Christian Barnard of Denville, Anna Dziedzic of Butler, Ava Winget of Mine Hill, Alexander Neuhaus of Lincoln Park, Jessica Campos of Dover, Sophia Lewis of Riverdale, and Mason Rabtzow of Lake Hopatcong. All students were recent graduates of MCVSD.

The scholarships were made possible through AT&T, PSE&G, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Group, Amazon, Investors Bank, and SHI International Corporation donations.
