Tom Eldridge Named NJ School Business Administrator of the Year
Lawrence Township Public Schools Business Administrator/Board Secretary Thomas Eldridge knew something exciting was happening when a caravan of about 20 cars pulled up in front of his house on Tuesday, May 12. It wasn’t until his colleagues from the school district and the New Jersey Association of School Business Officials (NJASBO) spilled out of the cars wearing face masks and carrying balloons and signs that he realized he had been selected as the NJASBO School Business Administrator of the Year.
“I had no idea what I was seeing when I stepped outside of my door! My wife asked me to come outside, so I went,” explained Eldridge. “I couldn’t process what I was seeing. As all the faces came into focus on my lawn and street, home never felt so much like home. I was in great company; dozens of the most kind people I have ever known.”
