15 Students are Fall Inductees of CCC's Education Honor Society


Fifteen students became members of Camden County College’s chapter of Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education during the organization’s Fall 2012 induction ceremony.

Kappa Delta Pi recognizes the scholarship of students who are pursuing education as an occupation and then, once they are working in the profession, helps these educators develop resources to continue growing throughout their careers. The College’s Alpha Alpha Psi chapter was the first chapter of Kappa Delta Pi to be established at a community college anywhere in the world.

Camden County College’s award-winning chapter conducts several service events each year. These include Literacy Alive!, typically held in the spring; Alex’s Lemonade Stand, most recently held in May; and Lunch with Santa, which took place Dec. 1 for children in Runnemede. The chapter was founded and is advised by Professor D. Jane Weber.

Students who reside in towns in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties were this semester’s inductees. The ceremony was conducted on CCC’s Blackwood Campus on Nov. 8.

Inducted were: Kirsten Connor, Berlin; Lori Drawdy, Hammonton; Brooke Engel, Medford; Katie Finnegan, Lindenwold; Danielle Gemerek, Laurel Springs; Brittany Kummer, Sicklerville; Paula Hunter, Erial; Jennifer Julian, Somerdale; Kelly Lickfield, Stratford; Lauren Longo, Haddon Township; Theresa Reilly, Bellmawr; April Robinson, Glassboro; Melissa Simon, Cherry Hill; Laura Smith, Gibbsboro; and Heather Ward, Deptford.
