The formerly homeless 21-year-old came to Crossroads Programs two years ago and turned his life around in order to get a job and eventually join the United States Navy. Adedamola shipped off to Chicago on July 18 to become a Seaman Recruit, and The Wire, The Burlington County Times and The Central Record have lauded his honor, courage, and commitment.
Students of the Parents of Autistic Children (POAC) Challenger League of Monmouth and Ocean Counties really were all-stars during a special senior All-Star game at the BlueClaws baseball stadium in Lakewood on May 31.

Laura Bishop Communications helped shine the spotlight on Jacob Parker of Tuckerton, playing for Pinelands Regional School District, who has been part of the league for the past eight years. His story, and those of his peers, was published in NJ.com and in The SandPaper.
