Three students honored at the New Jersey Distinguished Clinical and Cooperating Teachers Award Ceremony

Hackettstown, N.J., June 3, 2020—Three Centenary University students were recognized for excellence at the New Jersey Distinguished Clinical and Cooperating Teachers Award Ceremony, which was held virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The awards are co-sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Education and the New Jersey Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.

The annual event lauds the top 60 clinical interns—three each from New Jersey’s educator preparation programs. Centenary University students honored this year are:

  • Rachel Cope of Budd Lake
  • Olivia Stuber of Washington
  • Danielle Tornillo of Succasunna
