The Camden Schools Foundation hosted its 11th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner and Fundraiser on March 22, 2022 at Tavistock Country Club. This year’s event served as a celebration honoring four new inductees into the Hall of Fame, as well as presenting the second annual Founder’s Honor. The Camden Schools Foundation’s Hall of Fame continues to grow each and every year as we celebrate the distinguished men and women that are residents of Camden city or graduates of Camden schools that have gone above and beyond for their communities as well as the students in Camden.
The 11th Annual Hall of Fame welcomed four new members.
Joseph Ripa – Camden County High School Class of 1957, dedicated public servant and lifelong Camden County resident, serving third term as Camden County Clerk.
Stacy Johnson – Woodrow Wilson High School Class of 1975, CEO & President of Johnson Engineering Consultants, youth sports coach and mentor.
Nichelle Pace – Camden native, diversity, equity, and inclusion champion, media and advertising expert, and activists for Camden small businesses.

The Camden Schools Foundation also presented its second ever Founder’s Honor to
Jack Tarditi – Senior Partner at Conner Strong & Buckelew, community activist, and President of the Camden Schools Foundation.
In total, the event raised over $98,000 for both the students and schools in Camden, which was made possible by our very generous sponsors.
