Congratulations to Marion McGuiness who was honored with the North Section I Administrative Assistant Award!. The awards banquet took place at The Directors of Athletics Association of New Jersey's Convention on March 14th  in Atlantic City.


Marion was selected from a pool of over 150 Administrative Assistants. She has worked at West Essex since 2001 and has worked for four different  Athletic Directors, Tom Pengitore, Bob Storm, Damion Maciocci and Anthony Minnella. Marion possesses a personality that is warm and approachable. She is dedicated to our students and our school. Marion works countless hours ensuring that the student athletes benefit from all of the programs available at West Essex.  She is responsible for running high school and middle school sports. Some of her duties include confirming all games, officials, and transportation, processing registration for all athletes, and collecting activity fees.


Mr. Minnella feels especially lucky to have Marion as his assistant.  She was the one who “taught me the ropes” he said “when I was a new AD.” “I can’t express how lucky I am to have Marion as my partner/administrative assistant.  I call her my partner because that is what she is.” Minnella said. Minnella recommended Marion for this award stating that “her dedication and reliability are attributes seldom found in employees. She proves herself everyday.”
