County College of Morris President Edward J. Yaw was honored Nov. 5 with the Educator of the Year Award from the Research and Development Council of New Jersey. The award was presented at the 30th
R & D Council of NJ’s Annual Awards Dinner at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ.
The Research and Development Council is a nonprofit organization representing more than 45 major corporations, educational institutions and state officials in New Jersey. President Yaw will be recognized for his dedication to education and his commitment to providing students, majoring in the sciences, with scholarships funded by the council. CCM will also be recognized for 40 years of excellence in education.
In an effort to cultivate quality graduates in the state, majoring in applied science degrees, the council has provided scholarships for many years to community college students. Last year the council awarded ten, $1,500 scholarships, two of which were given to CCM students, one in engineering and one in respiratory therapy.
“I am deeply honored by this recognition and appreciate all the work the council has done,” said CCM President Yaw. “The students at CCM and across the state are very grateful to the Research and Development Council for these scholarships.”
