Gabriel E. Danch spent a lifetime trying to open doors for others - the same doors that had been so difficult for him to open. "I've done the things I've done because I can never repay what this country's given me with money," the Haddonfield resident once said. Mr. Danch, 77, chairman of the Camden County College board of trustees since 1971 and a pioneer in the development of two-year colleges in New Jersey, died Tuesday at West Jersey Hospital-Voorhees. Robert W. Ramsay, president of Camden County College, described Mr. Danch as "a remarkable, caring man. " "He has been a strong leader and friend of the community college movement in New Jersey and the nation," Ramsay said.

The college launched its first cable television advertising campaign in June, with spots running 126 times a week on cable systems around the county until the end of August, in what administrators called an attempt to alert 18- to 24-year-olds about the school's courses and programs. "We're positioning ourselves to be more competitive in what's becoming an even more competitive market," said Karen Stout, the college's vice president for institutional advancement and enrollment services.

Diagonally across from the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden, a small strip of storefronts and restaurants attracts a steady stream of people in and out to get fried chicken, look at new cellphones, buy clothing. The scene is set to be replaced with a different sort of bustle as state authorities last week granted preliminary approval to $50 million for a new health sciences building. Stretching from Broadway west to Fifth Street and from Martin Luther King Boulevard south to Stevens Street, the Joint Health Sciences Center and related buildings are meant to bring together Rowan University, Rutgers-Camden, and other medical and educational institutions in the city for teaching and research.

When Jazzmine Wilson turned 18 last year, she had little time to enjoy the milestone. Her aunt who had raised her for much of her life announced that the teen would have to move out, because she was getting a smaller apartment. Wilson, then about to start her senior year at Camden High School, faced the possibility of homelessness. As a veteran of the foster system, she was reluctant to go to a group home. Wilson, now 19, got a job in retail, and her older sister moved in with her. It wasn't easy having to suddenly start taking care of herself practically overnight, but she kept going to class.

From a Washington Township third grader to grandparents, educators, and parents, speaker after speaker at a public hearing Thursday rose to voice displeasure - or worse - with New Jersey's emphasis on high-stakes standardized tests. Most had come to complain about the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), a new and controversial exam aligned with Common Core curriculum standards. It will be given to third through 11th graders statewide starting March 2. "PARCC is a not-yet validated test that is wasting valuable classroom time for both teachers and students," said Natalia Reyes, an Eastampton mother of three, speaking to a state student assessments study commission at Camden County College in Blackwood, where the hearing was held.

The program, which is funded by a $500,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, is also aimed at preparing residents for job opportunities that may arise as companies start relocating to Camden in the years to come. The money will go to establishing apprenticeships and training through Camden County College, labor unions, and the business community, said U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross, one of the officials who spoke Tuesday afternoon at a news conference at Camden's Malandra Hall community center.

In a holistic effort to address some medical needs in Camden, students from Rutgers-Camden and Rowan University will provide health care alongside legal services in a new medical-legal partnership. The Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden Board of Governors authorized $25,000 in seed money for the program during its regular meeting Tuesday afternoon. Students at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University already provide care through student-run clinics. Rutgers-Camden law, nursing, and social-work students will join the Rowan students, alongside faculty from both universities and staff from the Camden Coalition of Health Care Providers, to help Camden residents with health-care needs beyond direct medical assistance.
