Roxbury, NJ (December 2, 2016) – Centenary University just announced that Stuart Mason, Roxbury High School’s Director or Athletics and Student Activities will be awarded Centenary’s Educational Leadership Award for this year. 

This award recognizes a local educational leader who makes a difference every day working with students, teachers, and their school community. The recipient has an innovative, transformative presence in their schools, always striving for what is best for students and their community. 

Individual nominations are made by the educational community in Morris, Warren, Sussex, Hunterdon, Union, and Somerset counties. Over 50 educational leaders were nominated this year. This year’s selection was made by the Centenary Education Department. 

According to Timothy Fredericks, department chair at Centenary University, “The ideal nominee should be a school leader who has transformed educational practices and positively impacted the culture and climate in their school community. Any school leader (Principal, VP, Director, Supervisor, or Superintendent) is eligible.” 

Mr. Mason will be presented a plaque and small honorarium on the evening of December 13th in the President’s Circle Room at the Lackland Center on the Centenary campus. 

One of the many nominations received on behalf of Mason included one that said, “the hours, energy, and passion he dedicates to his position is unmatched. We are try fortunate to have him as a leader. He has earned the respect of his colleagues, his students, his administration, his Board of Education, and the community.” 

Another comment on his behalf said, “He has brought stability and consistency to the people and programs under this charge and if you asked those who work under him, you would no doubt that they have greatly increased their chances of success because of his leadership.” 

Here at Roxbury, we couldn’t agree more! Congratulations Mr. Mason!
