Salem Community College Assistant Professor of Developmental English Jennifer Martin has received the 2014 Academic Excellence Award. 

Martin has taken on much responsibility in her first two years at SCC. She advises NJ STARS students, chairs the Outcomes Assessment Committee and serves on the Middle States Self-Study Steering Committee. 

“Jennifer does so much for Salem Community College and is passionate about student success,” said President Joan M. Baillie. “She is instrumental in preparing first-year students for college-level English.”

Active in her field, Martin is president of the New Jersey Association for Developmental Education. She also serves as president of the board of trustees for Literacy Volunteers of Burlington County, an affiliate of the state-wide Literacy Volunteers of New Jersey. In addition, she is working on a second master’s degree, in writing, at Rowan University. 

“Each morning when I drive to campus, I have a smile on my face because I love my job so much,” said Martin, a Pitman resident.  “I have the pleasure with working with some remarkable students, and with a little positive reinforcement, I get to witness their writing and critical thinking skills develop. I get so energized whenever I see a student feel proud of something he or she has written.”
