CLARK, NJ - West Point Society member, Joel Boroff, presented Arthur L. Johnson junior, Erin Heaning with a Dwight D. Eisenhower Leadership Award recently.

Each year, The West Point Society of New Jersey selects a high school junior in one of the high schools they sponsor, who exhibits exceptional performance and potential in the areas of academics, athletics, community service, good citizenship and leadership.  

According to WPSNJ website, students selected to receive this award are presented an individual plaque and a letter of recognition. Recipients and their family and guidance counselor, are invited to West Point for a Leadership Awards Recognition Day cosponsored by the West Point Parents Club and the West Point Society of New Jersey.

Heaning has a challenging  academic course load and still finds time to stay involved in many other activities including Student Council, Key Club, and ALJ’s Volleyball team.  She also started the Hunger Awareness Club that addresses the issue of hunger in the local community.
