The Council of Black Faculty and Staff at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey hosted its 29th Annual Awards Dinner and Dance recently at the Carriage House in Galloway. Since its inception more than a quarter of a century ago, the Council of Black Faculty and Staff has worked to expand the opportunities available to Stockton’s diverse community.

 The Council has awarded more than $220,000 in scholarship money to deserving Stockton students since 1981. This year the Council awarded nine $1,000 scholarships, one of which was named in memory of Annette Thorpe, a former Stockton staff member, and awarded to Phillip Bennett.

This year’s honorary chairperson was Stockton’s Provost and Executive Vice President, Dr. Harvey Kesselman. The following award recipients were honored for their contributions, which are making a difference both locally and internationally.

• Lifetime-Achievement Recipient–Dr. David Carr
• Merit Award Recipient–Ms. Yuberky Pena
• Distinguished Stockton Alumna–Dr. Agathe Franck, M.D., ‘02
