On Tuesday, September 22nd, County College of Morris (CCM) President Anthony Iacono was named to the 2020 NJBIZ Education Power 50 List, a recognition that honors President Iacono, the CCM faculty, its students, and staff members, for the efforts exhibited by the institution during the on-going pandemic.
Under President Iacono’s leadership, the CCM campus served as a testing center operated by Morris County and the Atlantic Health System, enabling testing for more than 8,000 people in the span of three months. The college also lent five ventilators, equipment used in their nursing program, to the Morristown Medical Center, in addition to donating 325 N95 masks and 3,000 gloves to medical facilities within the county. CCM also hosted two Table of Hope food distribution events to aid families economically impacted by the pandemic.
The college was also recognized for contributing to the growth of economic opportunities within the county and strengthening its workforce. In November 2019 CCM launched the Dover College Promise, a program that provides low-income middle and high school students in the community with college readiness training and support. In the fall semester, CCM opened the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center (AMEC) to address the need for skilled employees in the county and state in the growing industry sectors of advanced manufacturing, engineering, and STEM fields.
