EAST BRUNSWICK – Joan A. DeBoer of East Brunswick is among seven Rutgers University alumni who have been designated Loyal Sons and Loyal Daughters by the Rutgers Alumni Association (RAA).
The honorees will be inducted during a “scarlet-tie” affair to be held at Neilson Dining Hall on the Cook/Douglass Campus of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, on April 8.
DeBoer acquired an encyclopedic knowledge of Cook College’s alumni, faculty, and staff during her 39-year career as an administrator, which culminated as assistant dean for Academic Affairs, according to information provided by the RAA.
As an alumna, she served as vice president, secretary and Alumni Federation representative for the Cook/CAES Alumni Association.
In 1994 she founded the Silver Knights, a charter club for retired Rutgers staff to keep them connected to the university.
Cook honored Joan with the George Hammell Cook Alumni Award. In addition, she chaired the Cook Recognition and Awards Committee and initiated a biographical booklet of recipients.
