Local Journalist Honored

Local Journalist Honored Atlantic County will honor journalist Steve Angelucci of Galloway with the Donald J. Sykes Award on Thursday, Oct. 25 at The Smithville Inn in Smithville, N.J. The award will be presented to Angelucci and other “Atlantic County residents who have contributed to the betterment of our community and to the lives of others while also overcoming personal challenges related to having a disability,” according to County Executive Dennis Levinson.

Angelucci, who overcame a neurological disability related to a spinal malignancy, has worked as a volunteer in the Physical Therapy Department of the Pennsylvania Hospital and as a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist. He used his editing and writing skills to tutor immigrant students and helped one achieve her United States citizenship. “I believe effective communication can help immigrants gain greater acceptance and assimilation into our society,” he says.

In 2004, Angelucci received the Greater Atlantic City Jaycees Distinguished Service Award. He is a Charter Member of the Leaders Alliance of Shore Memorial Health Foundation and two-time recipient of the United States Presidential Sports Award. As a journalist, he has written numerous articles on local charitable organizations. Early in his career, he donated his time working in a public relations capacity for several musicians, including his cousin, the late Jim Croce.

Angelucci has worked as a writer and editor for Atlantic City Weekly, The Hammonton Gazette, Homes of South Jersey, Taste of South Jersey, The Drummer, The Argo and as editor-in-chief of The Word, student newspaper of Burlington County College. He is a graduate of The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and Burlington County College. He also holds professional certificates from Temple University, Atlantic Cape Community College, Cook College of Rutgers University, Career Academy School of Broadcasting and the Weist-Barron-Ryan Acting Studios. As an actor, he has performed in several movies and commercial productions.

“I’m grateful to be honored with this award,” Angelucci says. “It shows that barriers to achievement can be overcome.”
