Vice President of Student Development at SUNY Rockland Community College Honored by The CEJJES Institute
Suffern, NY—Dr. Eugene Henderson Jr. of West Orange, NJ, Vice President of Student Development at SUNY Rockland Community College, was honored at a leadership reception given on February 21 by The CEJJES Institute, a cultural, educational, and research foundation dedicated to improving the educational and social conditions for all disenfranchised people.
The Leadership Reception was held to recognize newly appointed leaders who either work or live in Rockland and reflect the ideas and principals of the CEJJES Institute, through their good works in education, economic development, or the strengthening of children and families.
Dr. Henderson worked closely with The CEJJES Institute to organize the educational summit, "Supplementary Education: The Hidden Routes to High Academic Achievement & Success." The October ’07 summit was hosted at RCC and was free to all attendees. The goal of the summit was to bring together parents, students, educators and community members to introduce, communicate and/or reinforce the notion of Supplementary Education.
Jamila Shabazz Brathwaite, Program Director of The CEJJES Institute, said, "Dr. Henderson's role at RCC is very important and we felt that honoring him was not only a way to recognize his good works but was also a perfect opportunity to introduce him to the community at-large. Dr. Henderson is currently working with us to organize the 2008 summit."
