Sonya Davis, President of the Human Services Club at Camden County College in Blackwood, ended her two-semester term on May 2.

“It was a very positive experience,” said Davis, an addictions counseling major. “I met many students that I probably wouldn’t have met if I hadn’t joined the club.”

The Human Services Club is dedicated to serving the community, often through volunteer work. On average, the club sees eight to 10 students each semester.

Though most students who join the club are human services majors, it is not a requirement to join the club. “Having a variety of students is encouraged,” said Davis.

Davis had been a member of the the club since 2011, three semesters before she accepted the role as president. She was recruited by a former member who visited classes for recruits, and eagerly accepted the offer.

The club’s last major activity for the semester was to visit the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey in Camden on April 28. Davis and the other club members cooked meals for the house’s residents, families of children with serious illnesses.

“It was one of my favorite things to do with the club,” Davis said.

During the last meeting, the club members talked about their experience with the club and said their goodbyes to each other. The club is expected to run again in the fall, though there is no word on who the new president will be.

After graduating on May 18, Davis plans to transfer to Drexel University, where she will major in behavioral health counseling.
