Congratulations to Jon Porco, this school year's first Lite Rock teacher of the Month.

Mr. Porco is the Band Director and a music teacher at Absegami High School in Galloway.

Under his leadership last year, the Absegami Braves Marching Band won the USBands National Championship in the Group 4AA Division. Two weeks earlier, they were crowned New Jersey Group 4A State Champions in competition at Rutgers University.

Mr. Porco was nominated by his Student Megan Nickerson for his passion and dedication to the Absegami Band and music program and for the impact he is having on his students.

Jon Porco wins a membership to Island Gym and a Lite Rock pizza party for the Absegami Band courtesy of Carluccio’s Coal Fired Pizza in Northfield. For submitting the nomination,  Megan Nickerson is now qualified for a $2000 scholarship from Lite Rock.

Put in a nomination and tell us about a teacher in South Jersey you think is deserving of being the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month and listen for more weekdays on the Lite Rock Morning Show with Eddie Davis.
