On Thursday, March 30th, at Thomas Jefferson Middle School, a check signing ceremony was held for this year’s initiative; The Class of 1993 Taormina Foundation. Deputy Chief Phillip Taormina was the loving husband of our 2022 – 2023 NJ Governor's Educator of the Year, Mrs. Renee Taormina, a devoted father to his children, a 27-year veteran of the East Rutherford Police Department and a leader within his community, Phillip was diagnosed with an aggressive form of liver cancer in June 2022. Treatment was not possible due to medical complications and, tragically, he passed away on July 27, 2022. Phillip was a graduate of Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford where a scholarship has been established in his name for students who serve their community and are pursuing a career in law enforcement, EMT, military, or cybersecurity. Thank you to the families and students for their generosity. With your support for the TJ Cares Volleyball tournament, snack sales and faculty bake sale, along with other outside fundraisers, at least 20 years of scholarships have been raised. A special thank you to the entire Physical Education Department for organizing and competing in the volleyball tournament itself. Thank you all for continuing Phil’s motto in life by helping others even when no one is looking.
