Veterans Day Celebration: RCSJ Honors Bravery, Sacrifice, and Courage

11/11/2019

Rowan College of South Jersey’s (RCSJ) Gloucester campus Student Veterans Organization (SVO) and the Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders hosted their annual Veterans Day celebration on Monday, Nov. 11.

The ceremony took place in the Physical Education Center, opening with the Camden County Emerald Society Pipes and Drums and an invocation by deacon and Gloucester County Clerk James Hogan. Monroe Township Councilman Cody Miller sang the national anthem and lead the Pledge of Allegiance before turning the ceremony over to Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger to serve as the master of ceremonies and provided a welcome alongside RCSJ President Frederick Keating.

U.S. Coast Guard veteran and Director of Student Affairs and Military Services John Ryder presented opening remarks. Ceremony guest speakers included Freeholder Veteran Liaison Daniel Christy; U.S. Army veteran Christine Thomas, U.S. Army veteran and RCSJ student Laison Dunnavant; and U.S. Army veteran and Veteran Student Academic Advisor Dr. Walter Gholson. The ceremony officials took time to recognize the 24 members of RCSJ’s Gloucester campus faculty and staff who have served our country.

The highlight of this ceremony for many was the presentation of the EOF club’s 2019 Veteran Award to Danielle Emmons to recognize her bravery, determination and success in both her academic work and her career. Emmons, a sophomore in RCSJ’s Criminal Justice program with plans to transfer to Rowan University to complete her bachelor’s degree, served as a Senior Airman in the U.S. Air Force. She is a mother, future wife and, in addition to her studies, serves in the Community Policing Unit of the Deptford Police Department. Emmons enlisted in the Air Force to support her country, which she continues to do so through her work in law enforcement. She was selected for this award based on her inspirational story and the many roles she has played in support of her country, her community and her family.

Rowan College of South Jersey’s Gloucester campus is located at 1400 Tanyard Road in Deptford, just off Exit 56 of Route 55.
