MCCC Grad Jorunn Evju Selected as
2008 Student-Athlete by N.J. Athletic Administrators


Jorunn Evju, a May graduate of Mercer County Community College, has been selected for the 2008 Outstanding Student-Athlete Award from the Collegiate Athletic Administrators of New Jersey (CAANJ). The award was announced at a special ceremony during the organization's annual conference in Somerset in October. She was selected from among all female student athletes who attend community colleges in New Jersey.

A Dean's List student who majored in Education, Evju played soccer for two years on the MCCC women's soccer team, serving as team captain during her sophomore year, and was an active member of the International Student Organization. MCCC Athletic Trainer Lisa Camillone, who worked closely with Evju while she recovered from a 2007 injury, nominated her for the CAANJ award. "She is a well-rounded, positive and extremely personable individual - an excellent student, a dedicated athlete, and a volunteer tutor for students with special needs," Camillone said.

A native of Norway, Evju has transferred to Kean University, where she is continuing her studies in Elementary Education.

Evju recently returned to the MCCC campus
to cheer on the women's soccer team
during the post-season tournament.
