Hackettstown, N.J. - The Graduate Education Program recently invited alumni of the Leadership Program to return to Centenary to talk to current students in the Master of Arts program in Education Leadership about their journey through graduate school and their various job searches.

The attending alumni included Izzy Marmolejos, Principal, Great Meadows Middle School; Monica Heinze, Vice Principal, Copeland Middle School; Bill Thompson, Principal, Willow Grove School; Jaime O’ Grady, Supervisor, Warren County Special Services; Chris Marganon, Principal, Dennis B. O’ Brien School; Jenn Chickey, Principal, Allamuchy Township School; and Mike Jones, Assistant Principal, Hampton Borough School.

“Having past members of the program come back and tell their tales of success is rewarding for the students because it helps them create stronger networks.” said Dr. Timothy J. Frederiks, Graduate Education Program Coordinator. “It also helps them realize that they are on the right path towards reaching their leadership goals.”
