Townsquare Media and the Jay & Linda Grunin Foundation are teaming up to salute our local heroes with our Warrior of the Week program.

Congratulations to Cornelius Begley, Our Warrior of the Week for the week of January 22, 2018.

From the words of Cornelius' nominator:

Cornelius, aka Neil, is a CBA graduate/athlete who went on to graduate from West Point and become an officer paratrooper. Neil was seriously injured in a jump and retired a wounded warrior.

Neil has gone on to be a teacher and now is the Principle at Saint Leo The Great School in Lincroft, helping to provide the leadership and instill the values that has made him a true local hero. They dont come any better than Cornelius Begley.

Congratulations to Cornelius Begley, our Warrior of the Week.

Do you know a deserving past or present military member? Nominate them now. Every Military Monday, we’ll share one of the nominations and honor that person as our Warrior of the Week.
