In other news, Robert Lomauro has been named interim president and CEO of the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties.

Kudos go to Edward Sullivan, of Cinnaminson, who was recently honored by the Philadelphia Business Journal at its annual Corporate Counsel
awards event in Philadelphia.

Sullivan is a graduate of St. Joseph's University and earned his law degree at Georgetown University.

The chief legal of cer of Kennedy Health since 1975, Sullivan was chosen based on a review of his numerous career accomplishments, community
service and his contributions to Kennedy Health's overall success.

During his tenure, the honoree has provided guidance and support as the organization has grown from a 99-bed hospital in Stratford, to a multi-
hospital health system today.

At Lourdes Health System, there has been the signi cant staff addition of Dr. G. Peter Gliebus, who specializes in Alzheimer's disease, cognitive
disorders, dementia and concussions. The assistant professor of neurology also is director of Drexel's Cognitive Disorders Center which is part of
Drexel Neurosciences Institute.

Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) named Dr. Karen Montalto, a nationally recognized nursing educator, as dean of Health Sciences.

Montalto, of Burlington Township, most recently served as director and assistant dean for the Of ce of Nursing Student Success at Rutgers-
Camden. She was recently selected as one of seven nursing educational leaders in the country into the Emerging Educational Administrator
Institute of Sigma Theta Tau, the nursing honor society.

Montalto has received several other honors and grants including the Daisy Faculty Award in collaboration with the American Association of College
of Nursing for Leadership and Change and a $10,000 grant from TD Bank for increasing nursing success at Holy Family University where she was
chair of the Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing program.

Under her leadership at Holy Family, the percentage of nursing students who passed the licensing exam increased from 65 to 96 percent.

Turning to the younger generation, praise is well deserved. The National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia recently announced the winners of the
2016 TD Bank Young Heroes Awards, given to young people from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Twelve young people, out of 40
nominations, were chosen to be honored.

Ella Wilson, 10, a student at Evans Elementary in Evesham, was among the honored students.­style/local­feature/burlington­county­people­recognized­for­good­deeds­and­good­works/article_5a1569d8­915c­11e… 2/3

The award is given to youngsters who have vigorously championed liberty through their own actions. Recognition is given to those who
demonstrate civic engagement, con ict resolution and the promotion of tolerance and diversity.

Ella, who has been challenged by partial vision loss, ADHD and muscle tone issues, has created an event, "Lovin' Your Noggin," in which volunteers
create headbands and hatbands for youngsters who are losing their hair due to medical issues.

Westampton's Garry Berman recently gave the world something to smile about. And we can all use lots of that.

Berman, an author of six books, shared insights about the late comedian Ed Wynn at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Hunt Valley,

Wynn was noted for his "perfect fool" comedy character, his "The Fire Chief" radio program in the 1930s and his multiple movie appearances.

Off-stage, Gary Berman does book appearances and signings about his pop culture books, with subjects like "Best of the Britcoms," "Between the
Laughs," and his latest entry in the book world, "For the First Time on Television."
