MHS Teacher Recieves Axelrod Award for Excellence in Education

Amy Colby was recently honored with the 2012 Honey and Maurice Axelrod Award.

Marlboro High School teacher Amy Colby was honored this year with the Honey and Maurice Axelrod Award, for her work in the field of Holocaust and genocide education and prejudice reduction.

“Ms. Colby demonstrates outstanding efforts in teaching Holocaust and genocide in her classroom and is well deserving of this prestigious honor,” said MHS Assistant Principal Shanna Howell in a news release.

Colby uses educational lessons of genocide and the Holocaust to teach about the impact of bias, bigotry, racism and prejudice. This award is a cooperative program with the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education and the Anti-Defamation League of New Jersey.
