NEWARK, NJ – The accolades continue to stack up for Millburn High School principal Dr. William Miron. A month and a half after his induction into the New Jersey Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, the Essex County Board of Chosen Freeholders presented Dr. Miron with the Board’s Commendation for being selected as an inductee and for his dynamic career. Dr. Miron was a trailblazer for Millburn wrestling and was recognized for his “service to the sport”. On Wednesday, November 1, Freeholder At-Large Patricia Sebold, who sponsored the action, presented the commendation to Miron.

In 1974, Dr. Miron graduated from Millburn High School as a State Champion and member of the school’s two-time undefeated wrestling team. In 1978, he graduated from Princeton University as a member of its three-time All-Ivy undefeated team, a team that also became Eastern Champions.

After graduating from Princeton, he began his career as a Mathematics Teacher at Seton Hall Prep and later taught at Millburn High School until 2000. From 1978 to 2000, he served as a clinician and coach for state all-star wrestling teams. Additionally, he served as Millburn’s Head Wrestling Coach from 1981 to 2001, leading the team to win five Conference Titles and two District Championships.

Soon after, he became the Chairman of the Lake Award for Contributions to Wrestling, Vice Principal of Millburn High School, and later Principal where he still serves today.
