Sultan KahloonBergen Community College student, Sultan Kahloon, believes that relationships and hard work have made him successful at Bergen. Kahloon served as chief justice for the Student Government Association, director of service for Phi Theta Kappa, 3SP student for STEM, a mentor for the Turning Point program, and an access assistant for the Office of Specialized Services. “Throughout my life, I have aspired to the humble yet meaningful service to my fellow man, while eschewing the chase for power. It is for this reason that I wish to become a doctor.” Kahloon plans to graduate from Bergen with an associate’s degree in biological sciences. When asked why he chose Bergen, he said, “It is an educational crossroads where all things are possible.”
