Shelly Schneider, interim president for Cumberland County College, was recently honored with the Power of the Purse Award, presented by the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
The award celebrates the positive impact that women make on their community and recognizes the outstanding contributions of women leaders who are dedicated to changing the lives of others.
The annual award recognizes one individual each from Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties. Also honored with Schneider was Cape May County Freeholder Marie Hayes, and Rona Kaplan of Cooper Levenson Attorneys at Law.
“It is humbling for me to receive an award for doing things that I love,” Schneider said. “My family and friends are incredible supporters of my many commitments. I truly hope that I have made a difference for others in some small way.”
In her long career as an educational leader in the region, Schneider has served in a variety of roles, including those of a classroom teacher, guidance counselor, administrator, and adjunct professor.
