dental professor recognized as a role model in teaching, departmental
leadership and dentistry has won the top instructional award available
to Camden County College faculty.
Dr. Catherine Boos of Blackwood received the 2003 Lindback Distinguished
Teaching Award during the college’s 2003 commencement ceremony.
She holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in
education from Wagner College, Staten Island, N.Y., and a doctor
of medical dentistry degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University,
Boos was hired as Camden County College’s director of dental programs
in 1988. In addition to directing and instructing within these
programs, she has served as co-chair of the college’s Professional
Standards Committee and Middle States Steering Committee and secretary
of its Faculty Assembly. She also has been involved with the college’s
Curriculum Committee, Teaching/Learning Center Advisory Board,
Middle States Interim Report Team and faculty-mentoring project.
Boos strives for and achieves excellence in both classroom and
clinical settings,” said CCC president Dr. Phyllis Della Vecchia.
“Under her leadership, our dental students continually score above
the national average on their certification exams and our dental
clinic has grown into a valuable community resource.”
Boos has remained an active dental professional throughout her
time at Camden County College, serving as a consultant to the
American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation
and as a member of many ADA accreditation teams. She also has
served as president and secretary of the Southern Dental Society,
which is a component of the New Jersey Dental Association.
A faculty committee selected Boos for the $4,000 award, which
is funded by the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation
in Philadelphia. The previous CCC honorees were Kelly Jackson
(2002), Claire Berger (2001), Adrienne Coons (2000), Paul Harris
