New Jersey-Meet your newly Certified Creative Placemakers!

From the time I was in elementary school, my favorite time of the year was ‘class photo” day!  I loved these portraits of my fellow classmates and our teacher taken near the end of the school year, and I still have a number of them in my photo albums.  They make me smile every time I look at them and I continually challenge myself to see how many  names I remember.

My all-time favorite photo in my collection, however, will be the one you see here.  I won’t ever forget the names of these people and neither should you!

Nothing has given me more pride than to award certificates for successful completion of our rigorous course of study and launch of their individually designed local community initiatives.  I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with these extraordinarily dedicated and committed individuals who are already “doing New Jersey proud!”  In coming weeks, we will showcase the creativity and passion as change-agents through the diverse initiatives that they are undertaking.

In meantime, I hope you will  join me in saying “BRAVO” to these community champions.  They are ready to lead Creative Placemaking efforts in localities across our state and beyond!
