TOMS RIVER-Today, Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato received an award from the New Jersey Italian Heritage Commission Award for his contributions to Ocean County community.
The New Jersey Italian Heritage Commission (NJIHC) raises public awareness of the rich and varied culture, positive achievements and traditions of Italy, the Italian people, and Italian Americans as they have all contributed to American and world civilizations.
NJIHC engages in the development, support and production of educational programs, forums, seminars, publications and exchanges for schools and private/public sector audiences throughout the state. The Commission brings long overdue recognition to Italian accomplishments that have improved the quality of life for all, be it in the sciences, the arts, technology, medicine, law, literature, philosophy, or trade and commerce.
