The late Elinor Pavon-Oziel, a 1962 graduate of New Brunswick High School and herself an educator for over 30 years in the Highland Park School District, always remembered the contributions and positive impact brother and sister, Joseph Marino and Joan Marino Bornheimer had on her and many other New Brunswick students.


Mr. Marino served as a teacher, coach, Vice Principal and Principal in the New Brunswick School District, while his sister Joan was a Spanish teacher, student council advisor, Director of the English as a Second Language Program, and the first woman principal of New Brunswick High School. Together they served the district for nearly 100 years.
