Two SCC students named to All-State Academic Team

Amy Chomo and Emma Joyce represent Salem Community College on the 2023 New Jersey All-State Academic Team.  They join an elite group of 35 other honorees from New Jersey’s community colleges.

The New Jersey Council of County Colleges annually honors New Jersey’s top community college students for their outstanding academic achievements and exceptional service to their communities and colleges. Chomo and Joyce are members of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of community colleges.

Chomo earned an associate degree with high honors in Sport Management on May 17.  She is the first recipient of the Wilmington University Presidential Scholarship for a Salem Community College graduate.

Following an outstanding athletics career at Arthur P. Schalick High School, Chomo played Mighty Oaks women’s club soccer her freshman year and competed on the softball team this season.  She also tutored fellow students in English in the SCC academic support lab.

Joyce was a dual-enrollment student at SCC and the Salem County Career & Technical High School.  She is earning an associate degree in Liberal Arts and will transfer to Rowan University where she will major in Entrepreneurship.

At the Career & Technical High School, Joyce is a member of the National Technical Honor Society and the Garden Club.  She is also a member of the Sunshine Committee that seeks to boost morale and make teachers feel appreciated.

The Salem Community College Foundation awarded $250 to each honoree.
