University of Rhode Island’s Alumni Association awarded Jonathan Herman ’99, the COO of Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), Eatontown, its Distinguished Achievement Award in recognition of his support, time, and charitable works on Oct. 14 at the Newport Marriott, Rhode Island.
Among his many charitable works, Herman and PHHC recently awarded four $500 scholarships to benefit New Jersey and Pennsylvania undergraduate nursing students. In memory of his parents, he and his wife Alene established the Arthur and Helen Herman Scholarship Fund at URI to provide financial support for students who have lost one or both parents. To honor his grandmother Lily Markel, a Holocaust survivor, he gave $25,000 to URI Hillel.
Herman, who serves on the state board for the March of Dimes, is the nonprofit’s state business spokesman. The Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, a charity that focuses on serving children with cancer and their families, named Herman and Alene their 2014 Humanitarians of the Year.
