Vivekananda Vidyapith Honored by the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders, New Jersey, USA
As a part of Passaic County’s celebration of Asian Pacific American History month, Vivekananda Vidyapith was one of two honorees chosen for outstanding contributions made to the U.S. and the community. Sponsored by the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders (“PCBCF”), the event was held on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Administration Office in Paterson, New Jersey.
Mr. John W. Bartlett, a Wayne Freeholder, applauded Vidyapith for its dedication to teaching Indian philosophy and great human values to students, and the positive influence it has had on the community at large. Then, Mr. Pasquale “Pat” Lepore, the former Mayor of West Paterson (now Woodland Park) read the proclamation and publicly recognized Vidyapith’s contribution. Thereby, Mr. Bartlett congratulated Dr. Mahendra Jani and Dr. Vandana Jani, co-founders and pioneers of Vivekananda Vidyapith, by presenting them with a beautifully framed plaque and wishing them continued success.
