Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, NJSBA’s executive director, was recently honored with the New Jersey PTA Life Membership award, which is presented to a person who has given outstanding service for the welfare of children and youth.
It is the highest honor a state PTA can bestow, and recognizes someone who has promoted the well-being of children by serving as an advocate for them in the areas of education, health, safety and legislation.
“Dr. Feinsod has been a tireless advocate for children throughout his career as a teacher, principal, superintendent, executive county superintendent, and as the executive director of NJSBA,” said Cathy Lindenbaum, president of the NJPTA. “He was instrumental in encouraging a fruitful collaboration between the NJPTA and NJSBA, and he has made exceptional contributions to public education in New Jersey. We thank him for his service to our students.”
