Westminster Dean and Student Recognized by American Cancer Society

Camille Hawthorne, associate dean of student affairs, and David DiDesiderio, a senior public relations major from New Wilmington, recently received a special merit award from the American Cancer Society in recognition of their efforts organizing the Relay for Life at Westminster College.

 The Relay for Life at Westminster College is sponsored by the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity, and has raised about $130,000 for the American Cancer Society over the past five years.  DiDesiderio has held a leadership position in that fund raising effort for the past four years. 

 "I got involved with the first relay on the day of the event because I was part of a team.  It was apparent that they needed some assistance, so I began attending planning meetings with Alpha Sigma Phi and the American Cancer Society," Hawthorne said.  "It's not technically part of my job, but I made it part of my goals each year."

 DiDesiderio is a son of Margaret and Gerald DiDesiderio of New Wilmington, and a graduate of Wilmington Area High School.

 Hawthorne, who has been with Westminster since 1988, earned her undergraduate and master's degrees from Northwestern State University of Louisiana. 

 For more information, contact Hawthorne at (724) 946-7112 or e-mail
