Marie Lassen “Unsung Hero” Award

Every year, the Monmouth-Ocean Chapter awards a scholarship in memory of a past chapter officer, Marie Lassen.

Marie did a lot of work, but she was a ‘behind the scenes’ type of person. So, Marie’s award goes to a member who has helped the chapter a lot during the year, not for any glory or recognition, but kind of incognito. The chapter calls it the Unsung Hero Award.

The current Officers determine who the year’s award should go to and it is presented at Coders’ Day with an additional Educational Scholarship Award.
