Technology awards given to Fair Lawn Schools district administrator
June 9, 2013 by Mark
The New Jersey Technology and Engineering Education Association (NJTEEA) recently recognized Ronald Durso, involved in the science, technology, and engineering sections of Fiar Lawn’s schools, with two prestigious awards.
The NJTEEA rewarded Durso for his images and his services as an administrator and supervisor in local education. No doubt the Fair Lawn public schools are using flyer printing and poster printing to let the community be informed of this noteworthy honor, and how it affects schools in the area.
Offering more opportunities in pre-engineering and other programs where students can learn specific skills like home repair have been Durso’s goals over the past year. As a result, a course in Basic Homeownership and Repair and a STEM Lab Honors have been created by the Fair Lawn Board of Education. Courses in wood technology, computer-aided drafting, and design and technology are also offered by the high school.
According to Bruce Watson, Superintendent of Schools, students have embraced the STEM programs that Durso has created. In addition, he has also been able to provide students interested in science and technology with additional courses as a result of the partnerships he has been able to make with local businesses and institutions.
The NJTEEA Image Award is given to those who make contributions outside the sector of technology education. Durso was given this award as he spearheaded efforts to organize a community of learning of engineering and technology professionals and leaders of North Jersey education.
