Hometown Hero

U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer honored Dana for the time and attention she spends on the students at East Brook. Dana was one of 33 honorees from Bergen and Sussex counties. Congressman Gottheimer also honored first responders, community leaders, veterans, students, and seniors who are dedicated to improving the lives of others.

We are extremely proud of Dana. She is a tremendous asset at East Brook Middle School! Congratulations!
