WOODLAND PARK, NJ - At the April 4 Borough Council meeting, three women in the community were honored as part of Women’s History Month. The presentation originally scheduled for March had been delayed because of bad weather.

Senior Vice President of Berkeley College Teri Duda, Mayor’s Committee on Good & Welfare Chairwoman Marge Barilari, and Woodland Park Police Department Capt. Eileen Tiernan were honored for their contributions in making Woodland Park a better place.

Duda was honored as being a leading executive in higher education.

“Berkeley College has long been a friend to Woodland Park,” Mayor Keith Kazmark said. “Not only has she been a friend, Teri has been a partner in the community."

Duda said of all the towns that she has worked in, Woodland Park is her favorite, due to the giving spirit of its residents.

Barilari was honored as a dedicated volunteer aiding families in their time of need as chair of the Good & Welfare Committee. She also served as welfare director for the Borough before taking her current position in the Borough court office. 

“Marge is a person who is very much behind the scenes,” Kazmark said. “But she makes sure that each and every family in need has a happy and festive holiday season each year," through the Borough’s Thanksgiving food drive and holiday toy collection.

Capt. Tiernan was honored as a woman in law enforcement serving in a senior command rank. A 25-year veteran of the Police Department, she has risen through the ranks to the second highest in command.

“In the 15 plus years I have served here, never once have I received one complaint about Capt. Tiernan,” Kazmark said, a testament to her leadership and abilities. “She has earned the respect of the Police Department, the Council and the entire community.”
