He’s given so much to Montclair and New Jersey. Now it’s time to recognize Montclair’s Josh Weston and vote him into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

Weston, along with his wife Judy Weston, have an incredible history of philanthropy, including starting the Weston Science Scholars Program at Montclair High School. Judy Weston died in 2020 and the Judy Weston Awards, celebrating exceptional Montclair Public School teachers teachers who inspire, endure in her memory.

Josh S Weston was the CEO of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) for 15 years and he is presently Honorary Chairman of the company.

In fact, you can vote for two Montclair greats in the Enterprise category of the ballot. Along with Weston, Montclair’s own Lillian Moller Gilbreth is nominated as well. Gilbreth who lived in Montclair, was the first female member inducted into the Society for Industrial Engineers. She was also the first female to receive the Hoover Medal, awarded in 1966 for public service as an industrial engineer. Gilbreth and her family became known to millions in the book “Cheaper by the Dozen”.

And, under the Performing Arts & Entertainment category, vote for Montclair’s own rock legend, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, who came back to visit Montclair High School, his alma mater, back in 2015 and gave a benefit concert to raise funds for Montclair High School. Walsh returned in 2017, to see the new library and media center at the school.
