Sicklerville resident chosen to serve as 2011-12 CCC alumna trustee

A student who aspires to be a forensic accountant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been selected as the 2011-12 alumni representative to the Camden County College Board of Trustees.

 

Amanda Braddock of Sicklerville was elected to a one-year term by her peers in the Class of 2011. She enrolled at CCC in 2009 as a New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship or NJ STARS student after graduating from Cherokee High School. She completed her associate degree in business administration with a 4.0 grade-point average, earning President's List status all four semesters.

 

While at CCC, Braddock was an active member of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society and was inducted into the New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association Honor Society. She also served as president of the Accounting Club and was vice president of the Student Government Association. Braddock said that her involvement with the Student Government Association led to her seek the alumna trustee position.

 

"As the alumna trustee, I will be given more time to serve the needs of the students I have grown to know and care about," she said. "Through student outreach activities and the time spent talking to club members and other concerned students, I have learned there are concerns and issues still needing to be considered."

 

In addition to her campus activities, Braddock worked two jobs, played intramural soccer and volunteered as a youth soccer coach while enrolled at CCC. She also has been active as an awareness advocate and fundraiser for Down's syndrome.

 

Braddock is transferring to Rutgers University to complete her bachelor's degree. She plans to major in accounting and minor in criminal justice.
