SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Last week, the South Brunswick Board of Education received an honorary recognition from faculty and students as part of January’s ‘School Board Recognition Month.’ The recognition was done by ‘The Dead Presidents,’ a history club made of high school students. Members of the Board of Education were given an honorary plaque, each with a different quotation from a former U.S President. Each member of the board received a plaque, along with former BOE member Azra Baig and former Board President Harry Delgato.
Zachary Nieman, a faculty member at South Brunswick High School who is in charge of the club, helped to organize the ceremony and spoke of the importance of thanking those who are in charge in the community.
“We often discuss the importance of leadership in our club, and one of the ways we can answer this question is to look at the leaders in our own community,” Nieman said. “We often think of the dead presidents for inspiration about leadership and service. We wanted to take a moment to thank the leaders that we have here in South Brunswick.”
Speeches were made by club President Kashif Ansari and Vice President Amrita Tejwani. Both of the students spoke about the value of service and the lasting impact of good leadership.
“To me, leadership is the act of motivating others to achieve a common goal,” said Tejwani. “We would like to thank you all for your displays of leadership and your service to the South Brunswick community. We are so grateful for all that you have done and would like to formally recognize your efforts with these certificates of appreciation to you all”
