BJ Ward has been a full-time English and creative writing instructor at Warren County Community College since 1997, first as a visiting lecturer, then as a tenure-track professor. He is consistently rated by the students as one of the college’s best professors, with good reason, as he is engaging and lively in his presentations. Ward is known well beyond the WCCC/Warren County community, though. And now, Ward will be recognized further when he receives the prestigious President’s Award at the 2016 Warren County Hall of Fame Dinner on Sat., Oct. 29.
The Hackettstown Business Improvement District and its executive director, Jim Sheldon, will also be recognized.
The gala event will be held at Hawk Pointe Golf Club in Washington and is open to the public.
The Hackettstown BID, under Sheldon’s leadership, has seen an amazing growth in a restaurant and micro-brewery niche, making Hackettstown a true destination town.
The establishment of the Warren County Hall of Fame, sponsored by the Warren County Community College Foundation, was created as a forum for honoring Warren County’s finest in an array of fields. The Hall of Fame itself is set up at Warren County Community College, where the public is invited to see it.
