SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - South Orange resident Amy Ziebarth received New Jersey SEEDS’ Leading Change Award at their 25th Anniversary Benefit. Ziebarth was honored by New Jersey SEEDS for her dedication to improving the education of students throughout New Jersey, stated SEEDS.

For 25 years, SEEDS has had the mission of changing the lives of motivated, high-achieving students from low-income families. Ziebarth joined the New Jersey SEEDS team in 1995 and served as Executive Director from 1998-2010.

“New Jersey SEEDS is near and dear to my heart, and I am honored to be recognized at their 25th Anniversary Benefit,” said Ziebarth. “I am – and always have been – so proud of SEEDS students. SEEDS students have changed the face of independent schools for the better. Classes are richer, academic excellence is higher and there is a dramatically different educational experience – not only for the SEEDS students but for all students in these schools. I am so happy to be part of the SEEDS family and to help celebrate all of the accomplishments of the organization and students over the past quarter century.”
