The Commission has created this award category to recognize the extraordinary achievements and contributions of those individuals and organizations to the quality of life in Ocean County. Recipients are selected from the distinguished list of Ocean County artists representing many art forms, nominated by various individuals and organizations. 2019: Thomas E. Rutledge
Photos from Thursday evening’s (April 11th) “Salute to Ocean County - A Celebration of Arts and Heritage” held at the Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College. 

One of the highlights of the annual entertaining program was the presentation of Ocean County Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts to Tom Rutledge. A short documentary film on Tom’s life was shown to a packed auditorium of many of Tom’s students, colleagues and family members. The video included filmed segments of a recent PSAA class Tom taught as well as statements made by class members and family members including wife Barbara. Tom was clearly appreciative and humbled by the award and ceremony, and Barbara and the rest of the family couldn’t have been prouder!

 Congratulations, Tom!!
