The Rowan College at Burlington County Board of Trustees (RCBC) welcomed a new member, James C. Anderson Jr., at its January 16 meeting.

Gov. Chris Christie appointed Anderson, of Medford, to serve on the volunteer board that governs New Jersey’s top-ranked and growing community college. Anderson has an extensive career in civil engineering and currently serves as director of Solid Waste Compliance and Development for Mercer Group International of N.J.

“Burlington County has a number of talented professionals who share their time and expertise to serve their community. Congratulations to Trustee Anderson on his appointment and dedication,” said Freeholder Linda Hughes, the college’s liaison and former college trustee. “Serving as a trustee is a rewarding experience that truly makes a difference in our community.”

Anderson has focused on energy efficient and environmentally-sound waste management plans at Mercer Group International.

“Rowan College at Burlington County has made a number of tremendous changes in recent years and I’m so excited to join this dynamic board,” Anderson said. “I’m particularly impressed with the college’s Alternative Energy Technologies program and its partnership with Rowan University’s renowned engineering program.”

Board Chair George Nyikita said the college will benefit from Anderson’s expertise in civil engineering.

“RCBC has one of the most affordable and highest quality paths to an engineering degree in the nation and Trustee Anderson’s insight will be very helpful as we build upon these programs,” Nyikita said. “Our Board of Trustees has many professionals who excel in their fields and we all serve with one purpose: to help students transform their lives through high-quality affordable education.”
