Brother Joseph Brienza, an underclassmen guidance counselor, was presented with the Lasallian Educator of the Year award by the Brothers of the Christian Schools’ District of Eastern North America.
Brother Joe, who won the CBA Lasallian Educator of the Year award last spring, traveled to a Lasallian Education conference in Denver to receive his award last weekend.
From the Brothers of the Christian Schools website:
A Christian Brother since 1964, Brother Joseph Brienza, FSC, has served in six different Lasallian ministries during his 49-year educational service journey. While most of his professional career was as a history teacher, he also has served as a campus minister, religion teacher, vocation director, and now serves as a freshmen and sophomore guidance counselor at Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft, New Jersey. His colleagues view him not only as that “older” Brother to his students, but to them as well. His gregarious nature and authenticity has endeared him to all he has encountered over these many years.
Congratulations to Brother Joe!
