FTHS Lead for Diversity Receives Humanitarian Award

The Lead For Diversity (LFD) at Freehold Township High School received the Joy Prescott Humanitarian Award given by Kean University and the Diversity Council on Global Education & Citizenship. The LFD, which also participates with the Freehold Township Human Relations Council, is a tolerance group sponsored by the American Conference on Diversity. It is a nationwide organization that promotes programs that foster inclusion, respect, and recognizing the value of diversity. The organization works with businesses, educational institutions, and organizations to create positive cultures within communities that enhance diversity initiatives, foster dialogue, and build values. A select group of students, seen as positive role models by faculty and staff, are selected each year to manage this initiative.
Ms. Meghan Kiernan and Dr. Angello Villarreal, the group's advisors, are extremely proud of the work these students do to support their school community.
