MILLBURN, NJ – The New Jersey School Public Relations Association (NJSPRA) elected six new officers to its Executive Committee for the 2016-2017 school-year; only one of the officers retained their previous position.

Nancy Dries who currently serves as the Coordinator of Communications for the Millburn Township Public Schools has been re-elected as the association's treasurer. Dries also coordinates community outreach for Millburn schools.

A long time resident of Millburn, Dries has been the Public Information Officer for the township schools since 2005. The public relations professional leads the district's communications efforts with familiar pieces like the Miller Mail and Superintendent Updates and monitors all board of education meetings.
