Reps work hard for our 8,000+ members. We took some time to recognize a few for their hard-work. Kudos to Arlene Rogers, MCREA for Distinguished Service Award, Beth Brasor, PREA for Phone Banking gift card drawing, and Olive Joseph for seizing the moment for a photo op with NJEA President Wendell Steinhauer as he attended our county Rep Council this evening!
