Bellmawr native Jason Nark has won 5 awards from the New Jersey chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, as reported at Philly.com. Jason is a Daily News reporter (previously with the Courier-Post) and is currently living in Blackwood...
...but he was raised in Bellmawr, NJ!
The article goes on to say that Jason's 5 awards included two first-place prizes.
Jason grew up in Bellmawr, attending Annunciation School, and then Gloucester Catholic. He went on to Rutgers for his bachelor's degree and the University of Penn for his Masters.
Very impressive for anyone... and even more awesome when it's a Bellmawr guy!
Jason started his working career in Bellmawr at the Bellmawr English Pizza, which he recently commented "got paid to fold boxes there when I was 10". He had a brief stint at Sneakin' In, and was a life-guard at Hyde Park Apartments.
Who knew that those early careers with pizza boxes, sneakers and life-guarding would lead him to achieving great successes in both his education and career?!
Awesome job Jason!
