“The JKW Honors program has helped prepare me for four-year university courses and enriched my learning experience at Bergen Community College. Being a part of the board and the program taught me how to be a leader and coordinate with staff members. Without this experience, I would not be the outgoing student I am today,” said Chah, a Judith K. Winn Honors and Phi Theta Kappa student.
