1. Elizabeth Sculthorp Force Marker
Inscription. Elizabeth Schulthorp Force (1902-2007) brought national fame to Toms River Schools and community with courses in Family Relationships and Social Behavior, designed and taught by her to local high school students from 1942 to 1957. News of both her excellent teaching skills and the challenging content of her courses spread rapidly throughout the country. Elizabeth subsequently decided to devote her life to national, international, and United Nations’ efforts to promote and strengthen the quality of family life.

“As an adolescent seeking clues and clips about what would be expected of me as future citizen, worker, husband and father, I eagerly embraced what Mrs. Force had to offer. Looking back from the perspective of fifty years, I now fully appreciated the brilliance of her classes."
