Medford resident wins community college award

Camden County College education professor Jane Weber and CCC’s chapter of Kappa Delta Pi Education Honor Society were recognized during the 2011 KDP Awards for Educational Excellence.

Weber, a Medford resident who coordinates the college’s elementary/secondary program and who serves as CCC’s KDP adviser, received the 2011 Community College Counselor Award.

She was honored for representing the mission and ideals of the honor society and for her dedication and excellence in guiding students as they pursue studies and careers in the field of education.

She was nominated for this accolade by the students she mentors.

“Dr. Weber always reminds us how the things we do and learn now will affect our careers as teachers,” said student Micaela Tortella. “She has made such an impact on our careers as students that some of her personality and teachings will come across in the way we teach in our classrooms someday.”

Weber holds a bachelor’s degree from Gettysburg College, a master’s degree from what is now Rowan University and a doctorate from Widener University.

She has been a CCC faculty member for almost 20 years.
