Commerce Group and Randolph Recognize the College for Its Contributions
County College of Morris recently was presented with two business leadership awards, one from the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey
and one from Randolph Township, for its innovations and programs that enhance economic success.
On Sept. 20, CIANJ presented the college with a Best Practice Award for serving as an innovation and workforce development leader. Accepting the award at the CIANJ Best Practices Conference was Patrick Enright, associate vice president for Workforce Development. The Best Practices Conference was held at the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange. As part of the college’s award, President Anthony J. Iacono’s remarks on how CCM assists individuals in becoming the next generation of leaders were included in the CIANJ’s Annual Best Practices Guide.
On Sept. 22, President Iacono was presented with Randolph Township’s 2018 Business Achievement Award by Mayor Mark Forstenhausler, the township council and its economic development committee. In a proclamation issued to the college, the township noted, “County College of Morris contributes significantly to the economic success of Randolph Township and Morris County as a whole, generating an estimated half billion in regional economic impact per year.” That award was presented during the 11th Annual Country Fair held at the Randolph Township Municipal Complex.
“We are honored to receive these awards in recognition of the college’s contributions to business and economic success,” said Iacono. “An essential part of our mission is to serve our local communities and beyond. We are proud of the work CCM does to enhance the lives of individuals and the economic strength of communities.”
