Administrator of the Year - William Cleary
Brooklawn Middle School

William "Bill" Cleary has been at Brooklawn Middle School for 19 years as an Assistant Principal and 8 years prior to that as an Assistant Principal at Parsippany Hills High School. He has been an administrator for nearly 40 years overall.

In the words of Student Council President Kelsey Mogan, "Mr. Cleary makes the students his number one priority, and is always there when a student is in need. He can often be found at athletic events where he is constantly cheering on and encouraging our athletes. He supports all the clubs and takes pride in the talent students display in plays and concerts." She adds, "This man is a true inspiration to every student he encounters, and spreads positivity and care to all those around him."

In the words of Student Council Co-Advisor Alison Franz, "It is clear by his interaction with students and staff that he is not there simply because of his role in the building, but because he believes in the program and the tremendous benefits it offers to school and community."

We congratulate Bill Cleary and the Brooklawn Middle School community on his achievement of this award. The established excellence for student leadership at Brooklawn, including that of several past NJASC State Officers, is a direct and tangible result of his guidance, support, and encouragement.
