2014 County College of Morris Peace Prize Recipient: Julio Rivera, Jr. Project: "All Else Will Follow" Faculty Mentor: Joseph Schilp, Associate Director, Media Center
The 2014 County College of Morris Peace Prize, awarded to Julio Rivera, Jr., recognizes his distinguished accomplishment in music. The writing and solo performance of "All Else Will Follow" are his moving response to some of the political, economic, and social problems affecting mankind's quest for a more peaceful and just world. Conceiving and creating his project reassured him that his own life is moving in the right direction; the compass guiding him is that we must all assume some responsibility for enhancing the hopes and opportunities of his fellow students and fellow citizens of the world. In his words, the song conveys "passionate poetry, a warm melody, and modern hip-hop," elements that reach out to multiple generations, from someone who is "just a regular student who notices issues" and believes something can be done about them.
It is clear that for Julio, as he pursues his interest in Communications both at CCM and beyond, many good things "will follow" and flow from his talents and endeavors.
