MARLBORO – The Board of Education has named Michael E. Ettore the new principal of Asher Holmes Elementary School.

The board took the action at its meeting on Nov. 21. Ettore will replace Tami Crader, who resigned from the district.

According to information provided by the board, Ettore received his undergraduate degree in English from Villanova University, Villanova, Pa., his teaching certificate from Kean University, Union, and his master’s degree in educational administration from Monmouth Univer-sity, West Long Branch.

Ettore was a middle school teacher at the Markham Pace School, Little Silver, for 10 years. For three months he was the interim principal at the West Freehold School, Freehold Township, and he has served as a vice principal at the C. Richard Applegate and Marshall W. Errickson schools, both in Freehold Township.

Since July 2004 Ettore has been the principal of the Village Elementary School, Holmdel.

In other business, Marc Edery, the vice principal of the Marlboro Memorial Middle School, was recognized at the fourth annual New Jersey Bias Crime Officers Association Training Session and Awards Ceremony.

Edery received an award for his “dedicated and exceptional performance in eradicating bias and enhancing community relations,” according to the school district.

The award was presented to one school administrator and one law enforcement officer in New Jersey.

Marlboro Memorial Middle School Principal Joanmarie Penney said it is important that students feel safe at school and she said Edery is committed to that job every day.

Edery said he was honored to receive the award and he is proud of the proactive steps the school and the district are taking on this issue.
