4.0 Graduate Elected 2013-14 Alumnus Trustee at Camden County College

 

A student who made this year’s All-New Jersey Academic Team has been chosen as the 2013-14 alumni representative to the Camden County College Board of Trustees.

Joshua Bell, 25, of Moorestown was elected to a one-year term by his peers in the Class of 2013. He completed his double-major associate degree in mathematics and computer science with a 4.0 grade-point average, earning President’s List status every semester he was at CCC.

While at the College, Bell was inducted into Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society – the top honor society for community college students – and served as its president during the 2012-13 term. He was instrumental in organizing PTK’s Fall 2012 “Find Your Sole Mate” shoe drive, which collected 2,000 pounds of shoes for recycling and donation to needy children and adults in Third World countries. He also earned membership in the Mu Alpha Theta mathematics honor society.

“My leadership role in PTK allowed me to get to know a number of students, faculty and administrators across campus,” Bell said. “That plus my extended time spent on campus will allow me to bring a true and all-encompassing student’s view and opinion to the trustee meetings.”

In addition to his campus activities, Bell has held three jobs simultaneously. He currently is working as a private tutor, at a Starbucks and in an insurance company office.

Bell is transferring to Rowan University to complete his bachelor’s degree, continuing as a double major. He then plans to seek a master’s degree in computer science, concentrating in computer software engineering.
