â€śBeing named by ROI-NJ as an influencer in higher education is an honor, especially when considering the exceptional depth of the many leaders across the State of New Jersey,â€ť said Iacono. “CCM continues to grow because of the support from the local communities within Morris County, including students and parents, as well as our industry, community, business and educational partners throughout the state and nation.
