“The Department of Education and students across the state have benefitted from Dave’s service throughout his career, and as president of Burlington County College (BCC) we know he will continue that tradition. His extensive experience as a former commissioner, teacher, superintendent and attorney has provided me and our team with immeasurable insight and support as we pursue aggressive reforms on behalf of New Jersey’s students. When you have talented people who fuel innovative ideas and put them into action, it is no surprise that other organizations would want them to be a part of their team, and BCC’s selection of Dave as their new president is an exceptional one. We are thrilled for him and wish him the very best as he continues the imperative work of helping New Jersey students get to and succeed in college."
