Bringing history to life at Fleetwood Elementary


Award-winning childrens book author Doreen Rappaport speaks to students about writing a book
By MIKE MONOSTRA
The Sun
Standing on a small table at
Fleetwood Elementary School
last Thursday were nearly a
dozen childrens historical books.
The faces of Martin Luther King
Jr., Helen Keller, Frederick Douglass, Theodore Roosevelt and
others shined brightly on the covers.
Students in grades as young as
kindergarten could identify these
famous figures and knew about
the many important things they
did in their lives. The students
owe part of their knowledge to
the author of those books, Doreen
Rappaport.
Last Thursday, students at
Fleetwood got to meet Rappaport,
an award-winning childrens
book author, as part of a special
event at the school.
Rappaport has nearly written
enough books to have her own
section at Fleetwoods library. A
native of New York City, Rappaport has had 50 books published
including biographies, books on
historical events and historical
fiction for ages 5 to 17. Rappaport
has won multiple awards for her
book Martins Big Words: The
Life of Martin Luther King Jr.
Each year, Fleetwood brings in
a childrens author or illustrator

who helped create the books they
read over the course of the year.
Media specialist Tiffany Andrayo
reached out to Rappaport because
she felt her books had connected
with the students in a way no

other history book could do.


Her books are very accessible
for the kids, Andrayo said.
Rappaport said she has spoken
to students of all ages at countless schools during her career.

She recalls when she began to


write at the age of 6 and informed
the students at Fleetwood they
could do the same.
It motivates the kids and they
learn, Rappaport said of her

visit. Even in kindergarten and


first grade, they learned how a
story is made. And its sophisticated.
Many of Rappaports books revolve around civil rights, something Rappaport is very passionate about.
She has written books detailing stories about slavery, the Civil
War and the Civil Rights rallies in
the 1950s and 1960s.
For each story, Rappaport explained she has to do months of
reading and research before she
starts writing. When explaining
her book about Martin Luther
King Jr., she read dozens of biographies, history books and two of
Kings autobiographies before
she wrote a single word.
Theres a lot of pieces to put
these stories together, Rappaport
said.
Rappaports stories arent just
fact-based. The books also include
direct quotes from the people in
the story to paint a realistic picture for the reader. Andrayo said
her books have been the perfect
way to introduce direct quotes to
the young readers at Fleetwood.
Rappaports goal in speaking
with the students was to tell them
they could also write like she has
done for many years. She has alplease see RAPPAPORT, page 11

The following information was

Mt. Laurel Police responded to
a threat at Parkway Elementary
School on June 2. At approximately 9:30 a.m., an unknown individual telephoned the school office

and indicated he was in the


school with a gun. The school immediately went to lockdown and
called police.
Police arrived and conducted a
search of the school. No threat
was detected, and the call appears
to have been a hoax. All students
and staff are accounted for, and
no injuries were reported as a result of this incident. The lockdown was lifted at approximately
10:56 a.m. Mt. Laurel Police are
conducting an investigation to de-

termine the identity of the suspect.


Parkway School is a voting location for Mount Laurel and voting was in progress when the
threat was received. Voting was

in our opinion

More casinos? This could work


Building casinos in North Jersey could be a good idea, if done properly
ur legislators seem to have
run out of ideas to get New
Jersey back on track financially. So, instead of brainstorming
new ways to give our economy a boost,
they are instead considering a re-hash
of the same old thing casinos.
Lawmakers are considering putting
a ballot on this Novembers elections
that would ask voters whether they
support expanding the states laws to
allow casino gaming in parts of the
state outside Atlantic City. That would
potentially allow two new casinos to
be built in North Jersey a proposed
Hard Rock casino at the Meadowlands
race track and another casino adjacent to the Liberty National Golf Club
in Jersey City.
The $1 billion Hard Rock casino
could be ready by next summer or fall
2016, officials said, and would create
an estimated 2,360 jobs during construction and another 5,000 permanent jobs. The Jersey City casino
would presumably create similar

Your thoughts
What do you think about the proposal to
build casinos in North Jersey? Share your
thoughts on this, and other topics,
through a letter to the editor.

numbers.
We love numbers like that, but the
question is: Would the North Jersey
casinos be sustainable long term? If
you look at just Atlantic City, the answer would be a quick no. Four casinos closed in the last year alone, and,
overall, casino revenue slips every
year.
But when you take a closer look at
the numbers, there are plenty of positives. If you take out the numbers for
the four casinos that closed, revenue
climbed about 8 percent in Atlantic
City in 2014 compared to 2013.
The Borgata, Atlantic Citys shining
star, continues to do well. Its revenue
of $687 million in 2014 increased 10.7
percent year over year, and was almost

double that of the next closest casino


Harrahs, at $365.3 million.
This proves that if a casino is done
right with beautiful hotel rooms, a
top-notch spa and salon, a clean bright
look, five-star restaurants and offerings other than just gambling casinos can still be successful.
South Jerseyans might be quick to
say that casinos in North Jersey would
further sink Atlantic City. But we tend
to agree with the backers of the ballot
who say its not North Jersey versus
South Jersey; its North Jersey versus
New York.
If we can build casinos in North Jersey that offer everything that a place
such as the Borgata or Harrahs in Atlantic City offers, then our state is likely to attract these people from the
North who are traveling to casinos in
other states instead of Atlantic City.
And since part of the revenue from
these proposed casinos would go to
help Atlantic City, it could be a winwin for everybody.

By MIKE MONOSTRA

When he began attending Rutgers University in the fall of 2011,
Will Campbell, a Mt. Laurel native and graduate of Lenape High
School, was hoping to pursue a
bachelors degree in biology.
At the time, he never wouldve
imagined hed be giving a speech
at the commencement for the
school of management and labor
relations.
However, more than four years
later in May, Campbell graduated
from Rutgers with a masters degree in labor and employment relations just two years after

Campbell was one of a few students chosen to give a speech at
the graduation ceremony. Some of
Campbells peers may have
known him as a passionate student preparing to go to law

school. Others may have known


him from his community outreach initiative and philanthropic pursuits for the Omicron Alpha
Chapter of the Kappa Delta Rho

However, it wasnt until graduation when many learned about
Campbells journey into labor
studies and how one of his former teachers from Lenape High

Chris Brookover ready to make a splash


in new role with YMCA swim team
By MIKE MONOSTRA
The Sun
Cherry Hill resident Chris
Brookover has been around competitive swimming for more than
30 years, but he has never been as
excited as hes been in the past
month.
The YMCA of Burlington and
Camden Counties in Mt. Laurel
recently hired Brookover to take
over as competitive swim director
and head coach for its swimming
team. Brookover will lead the
swim team at all age levels from 6
to 18 years old.
The opportunity was too good
for Brookover to pass up. While
he has coached individual teams
at various levels in the past, this
is the first time hes been in
charge of an entire organization.
It is a very unique and outstanding opportunity to kind of
build a team here, Brookover
said. I absolutely relish it. I always wanted to see what I could
do as far as being a head coach of
the team.
Brookover has been a swimming coach since college, having
been hired as an assistant coach
at the University of Wyoming,
where he competed in the early
1980s. After coaching as a fifthyear assistant there in 1985,
Brookover moved on to Colorado
State to coach the womens team.
Brookover said coaching was
something he enjoyed from the
very beginning.
I felt really comfortable coaching, he said. It seemed very natural to me. To help other athletes
trying to achieve their goals
meant a lot.
Brookover moved to South Jersey in 1992 and began coaching at
the Jersey Wahoos Swim Club in
Mt. Laurel shortly after. For more
than two decades, Brookover
coached kids of various ages and
skill levels. Some of the specific
areas he focused on included
proper stroke mechanics, dryland
training and meet preparation.
Tim Kerrihard, president and
CEO of the YMCA of Burlington
and Camden Counties, said
Brookovers extensive experience

made him perfect for the job.


(Chris) extensive background
in competitive swimming will
help us take our competitive
swim program to the next level,
Kerrihard said.
Brookover not only taught
dozens of area children to be better competitive swimmers, but
has also seen his own children
make a name for themselves in
swimming. His daughter Jaimie
Lynn was a standout swimmer
for Cherry Hill East and just completed her sophomore season
with the University of Connecticut. His son Duncan is finishing
up his junior year at Cherry Hill
East and helped the Cougars to a
state championship in 2015. His
youngest son Jackson also swims
at the club level and won the 50meter backstroke at Cherry Bowl
2014 for the 11- and 12-year-old division.
Its really been a big part of
our lives, Brookover said. Its
turned out that way. Never would
have dreamed it 20 years ago.
Brookover is preparing to
make his mark on the YMCAs
swim team in the coming weeks.
Tryouts were scheduled to begin

on
Monday,
June 8 and
continue
through the
end of the
month.
The
YMCAs season runs from
Labor
Day
through Memorial
Day
BROOKOVER
and includes
meets against
other New Jersey and Pennsylvania YMCAs as well as other top
swim clubs from across the state.
The team will also compete in the
YMCA nationals in North Carolina.
The support and the organization of the YMCA toward competitive swimming is unparalleled,
Brookover said. They really help
you to build a team and compete.
Brookover is expecting his
team at all age levels to be a mix of
returning and new swimmers to
the program. He is most looking
forward to tryouts and working
with a new group of swimmers.
Its going to be great to see a
lot of people and take a look at
what we had, he said.

istry course for his biology major.


Campbell struggled through the
organic chemistry course and
found himself unsure of whether
science was really for him.
I was kind of in a crossroad
considering whether I wanted to
continue pursuing science and
med school, he said.
Campbell said many people encouraged him to continue in science, saying it was a good career
path. But Campbell wasnt happy
in the science course. He was happier instead in his labor studies
course. Campbell had declared a
minor in labor studies at the time
and found the classes enjoyable.
Unsure of what to do, Campbell decided he wanted to reach
out to a former high school
teacher, saying the teachers at
Lenape High School were a big inspiration to him.
He decided to write an email to

Andre Lopez, an English teacher


and coach for the boys swim and
golf teams at Lenape. Campbell
was in Lopezs class during his
sophomore year and recalled
Lopez had once gone to college at
Rutgers for science as well. After
changing his major numerous
times, Lopez found his true calling of English, writing and teaching.
I thought itd be good to reach
out to him and have a conversation, Campbell said.
Campbell sent the email to
Lopez in May 2013. Lopez was
able to immediately connect with
what Campbell was feeling.
This was the exact same
dilemma I had as a sophomore in
college, Lopez said. I graduated
valedictorian from Maple Shade
High School and was forced into a
biotechnology major, because I
thought that was my dream and
what others expected of me. And
I too reevaluated my life when approaching organic chemistry.
Lopez sent Campbell an email
back, telling him his story and

how he departed from biotechnology to pursue a career in English,


eventually becoming an English
teacher at Lenape.
I wanted him to feel the same
rewards of following your passions and dreams that I feel everyday as a teacher and coach here at
Lenape, Lopez said.
After he received the reply,
Campbell decided to follow his
former teachers advice and make
the change. Campbell credits the
email exchange as the big reason
why he finally made the switch.
It gave me the confidence to
make that decision, he said.
Campbell switched his major
to labor studies and immediately
found his calling.
Thanks to large number of college credits carrying over from
high school, Campbell graduated
in three years with a bachelors
degree in labor studies. The next
year, he was ready to graduate
again, this time with his masters
degree.

JUNE 1016, 2015 THE MT. LAUREL SUN 11

Speech was two-fold message for peers


SPEECH
Continued from page 10

It is our responsibility, our


duty, to lift up not just
ourselves, but those around us.
Campbell said his advisor told
him shortly before graduation he
was one of the students chosen to
make a speech at the school of
management and labor relations
graduation ceremony on May 16.
When he sat down to write the
speech, Campbell wanted to
honor Lopez, but also wanted to
leave his fellow graduates with
some words to live by.
When I first sat down to write
it, it was a process, Campbell
said. I really didnt know how I
wanted to approach it.
From early on, I was definitely thinking about that email he
sent me two years ago, he continued. It was an important part of
my intellectual growth.
Campbells speech was a twofold message for his peers. First,
he asked the other graduates to
think of the people like Lopez in
their own lives the people who
helped them get to where they
were on graduation day.
A lot of people just think they
did it themselves, Campbell said.
We have teachers, we have parents, we have friends who support
us along the way.
Secondly, Campbell encouraged his peers to make an impact
on others just as Lopez has impacted him.
Now that we have finished one
of the most important steps in

our journeys, it is up to us to become the next generation of mentors and advocates, Campbell
said in his speech. Our achievement has become part of the success of those who picked us up
when we were down. We can only
measure ourselves to the same
standard. It is our responsibility,
our duty, to lift up not just ourselves, but those around us.
Lopez and Campbell hadnt
been in contact since their email
exchange in 2013. After completing his speech, Campbell decided
to reach out to Lopez again.
After I finished the speech, I
wanted to let him know he was an
important part to where I am,
Campbell said.
Will replied to the email I sent
him two years ago with a brief
email telling me how much my
email meant to him and how he
had followed his dream, was now
graduating and giving a speech
that he wanted my thoughts on,
Lopez said. I was shocked that
he had kept that email for two
years.
When Lopez read the speech
and discovered how big of a role
he played in Campbells college
career, he was touched.
I was at a loss for words,
Lopez said. I was blown away
that he referenced me and how I
inspired him in his speech and
that he urged his fellow graduates
to find their inspiration and follow their dreams.
Lopez told Campbell after reading the speech, the impact he has
made has validated his choice to
teach.
I may have helped him find
his way, but I will be forever grate-

ful to Will for reminding me that


what we do as teachers and coaches really does make a difference,
Lopez said.

Moving forward,
making an impact
Campbells college journey is
far from over. He is planning to attend law school at RutgersNewark in the fall. He hopes to
one day have a law career protecting unions and their employees.
He already has some law experience, having worked as a legal administrator at Vella, Singer and
Martinez law firm in Metuchen.
I am very interested in labor
law and employment law, he
said. This is something that does
call to me, and its absolutely
something I want to do.
Campbell said he will always
look to reach out to others as he
moves forward into law school
and eventually a career. He wants
to make an impact on others the
same way Lopez made an impact
on him.
Meanwhile, Lopez is continuing to enjoy his job teaching at
Lenape and now realizes the impact he has made.
He said Campbells story is
proof of the difference teachers
can make on their students, even
after they move on to college and
their career.
Teaching is not about the paycheck or summers off, Lopez
said. It is about making a difference.
Will made me realize that by
following my dreams, I made a
difference in his life and maybe
others before him.

Rappaport hopes to inspire students


RAPPAPORT
Continued from page 1

ready made an impact on students across the country.


In Utah once, I worked with a
girl on a story, she said. This

was back in the day before email.


We went back and forth as she
was revising it. I worked with her
for about a year. Eight years later,
I went back to Utah to give a talk
at Brigham Young University.
This young woman came up to me
and said Ms. Rappaport, do you
remember me? I knew it was
her.

ADVENTURE
IS WAITING.

Rappaport said she had inspired the girl to chase her


dreams of becoming a writer. She
hopes she also left the Fleetwood
students with a touch of inspiration.
All of you are the future, and
we are counting on you to do
great things, Rappaport said to
the students.
