Mr. Leibnitz Gomez is the 2017 recipient of the outstanding student award and is the first Pillar College student to become a Certified Behavioral Assistant while pursuing his BA in Psychology and Counseling at Pillar College. “Lenny”, as he is affectionately known, received his certificate from the State of New Jersey Department of Children and Families division. The training was offered at the Rutgers University Behavioral Health Center (UMDNJ) in Newark.
