The goal of the Brick Hero Awards is to recognize acts of kindness and put those who actively do good deeds in the spotlight. This year, recipients will be awarded based in the following categories: Business, Community Stewardship, Military/Veterans, Non-Profit Organization, Public Safety, Public Service, School Personnel, Seniors, Volunteerism and Youth.

The Mayor’s Student Advisory Committee (MSAC) is comprised of students from both Brick Township and Brick Memorial High Schools. MSAC was created by former mayor John Ducey as a way to give young people a greater voice in the local community. The mission of MSAC is to “empower the youth of our community to be more civic-minded and the leaders of today,” an announcement said.

“The Hero Awards is a perfect example of our wonderful community coming together to highlight each other’s remarkable contributions and acts of kindness,” said Crate,
