HAMILTON, NJ -- There are milestones in every student's life -- and in the lives of their parents - that they want to shout from the rooftops.
While many students, do not know if COVID-19 will keep them from celebrating their graduation this year, long-time Hamiltonian and owner of Word Center Printing, Marilyn Silverman, wants to make sure that these graduates are celebrated in their hometowns.
"We decided to do this because one of our staff members has a high school senior and a college senior, and feels so bad about them both missing all the year-end events, class trips, prom, and graduations ceremonies," said Silverman. "We want to do something to celebrate their achievements and give the community a chance to congratulate them perhaps with a drive-by honk or wave."
Founded in 1983, Word Center Printing is considered an "essential business" under the current restrictions, but is operating on a limited schedule to protect their employees. Among their services is resume writing for those who may be unemployed and needed to get back into the workforce.
