Republican President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign manager is returning to her New Jersey roots to lead a parade.

Kellyanne Conway will be grand marshal of Saturday’s Christmas parade in Hammonton, where Trump topped Democrat Hillary Clinton in the November election.

The Hammonton Fire Department says Conway was raised in Atco and graduated from St. Joseph’s High School in Hammonton in 1985. She spent summers working at Indian Brand Blueberry Farms before leaving for college in Washington, D.C.

Conway will also receive a key to the city.

Conway regularly makes media appearances on behalf of Trump and has even been spoofed on “Saturday Night Live.” A memorable skit about her day off shows her free time interrupted repeatedly by having to go on CNN to explain Trump’s latest tweet or statement.
