“The educational experience offered to me by Atlantic Cape and its faculty was nothing less than wonderful. I was given the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented and motivated professors any institution of higher learning can offer its students,” Rann said. “What I received from Atlantic Cape, however, was more than just a great academic experience. My life is richer from my experiences as a student at, and graduate of, Atlantic Cape.”

The award, initiated by Atlantic Cape’s Alumni Association Advisory Committee, recognizes an Atlantic Cape graduate who has displayed professional, personal, public or community-based accomplishments. The prestigious award demonstrates Atlantic Cape’s dedication to strengthening its alumni relations. The 2010 recipient was Janice DeCicco Fipp, Ed.D., Northfield Community School superintendent.
