RANDOLPH, NJ -- Denville resident, Sohier Abdelfattah, is one of 15 Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) students at County College of Morris (CCM) to receive achievement awards from the New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education in recognition of their academic success. This was the largest number of CCM students to be recognized within a given year.
“While we always have numerous students who excel and are recognized with these awards each year, we were pleased to have our largest number of students receive this recognition this year,” said Dr. Pam Marcenaro, dean of learning support and opportunity services. “Our students can be very proud of their success and achievements both in and out of the classroom.”
The Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, the EOF headquarter office and EOF Board of Directors hosted the state’s annual EOF Senior Achievement Awards celebration virtually this year. During the event, the state recognized all EOF graduating scholars across two- and four-year colleges with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2. CCM students and the awards they received were:
