10th Annual Hall of Fame A Success

Camden NJ – 

The Camden Schools Foundation hosted its 10th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner and Fundraiser on May 20, 2021 at Tavistock Country Club. The event served as a celebration honoring the new inductees as well as presenting the first ever Founder’s Honor. The CSF Hall of Fame is a distinguished group of men and women who are Camden city residents or graduates of Camden schools, who have gone on to make significant contributions to their communities — especially to the students in Camden. A full recording of the program from the event can be found on our YouTube channel.
