The Foundation Awards 2018-2019 Joanne Kerekes Arts Grants
Press Release - February 4, 2019

The Education Foundation of South Brunswick Township is proud to award Kim Zito, Library Media Specialist at Crossroads North Middle School, the 2018/2019 Joanne Kerekes Arts Grant for her project, "Bring Lessons to Life with Augmented Reality".

The Joanne Kerekes Arts Grant was established to honor Joanne Kerekes who devoted over 40 years of her career to education, and specifically over a quarter of a century to the South Brunswick School District, guiding the district to be the high achieving and innovative district it is today. She serves as an inspiration to all who worked with and for her. Joanne has a very special affection for the arts, music, library media and technology, and her support of those programs has left an unmistakable legacy.

In recognition of Joanne’s contributions to our district and in keeping with her special interests, the South Brunswick Education Foundation created the Joanne Kerekes Arts (JKA) Grant. This grant annually awards of up to $1,000 for proposals for a project, program, study, or initiative that promotes collaboration, inspiration, creativity, inquiry, integration of the arts (fine, practical or performing) and/or innovative use of technology related to the arts, literature and/or the humanities.
