Donald Campbell ’13
received a degree in political science from Stockton University which is where he discovered his future in studying law. Following his dream, Campbell enrolled in Delaware Law School where he is on his way to becoming a lawyer. Campbell was born prematurely with mild cerebral palsy. Everyday activities such as walking and fine motor skills are difficult for Campbell, but that does hinder his passion. Campbell overcame these challenges with “Dragon” a computer system used for dictation and Amy Loeffler, an administrative assistant in the Office of Student Affairs, who dictated Campbell’s thoughts when “Dragon” fell short. Once he passes the New Jersey bar exam, Campbell will follow his dream of a career in special education and disability law.

Liliya Sakhan

Finishing the King Arthur unit with the 3rd graders

Liliya Sakhan ’12 graduated from Stockton with a B.A. in literature and continued on to finished a master’s in religion at Fuller Seminary Los Angeles. She is now in her third quarter of the master’s in clinical psychology program at Antioch University Los Angeles. Initially desiring to be a licensed therapist and teach literature or history during any interim,her adoration for literature directed her to a teaching position at a reading clinic in Los Angeles that caters to the local Korean-American population, where she works while she finishes her second master’s. There, she teaches advanced literary courses to small groups of students, grades 2-9, in order to improve their reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing and interpretive skills. In her academic pursuits, she hasn’t forgotten where she first fell in love with literature, history and the human psyche. Liliya is often crediting the Stockton literary faculty for inspiring some of her ideas for her teaching content. She has conveyed my love for holocaust literature, slave narratives, Mark Twain, and Shakespeare in the advanced junior high curriculum, for which Stockton literary faculty is very much responsible.
