Camden Catholic High School in Cherry Hill will dedicate the new library space, the Hocker Information Commons on Friday, September 15 at 5:30 p.m., featuring a special room dedicated to Monsignor Bob McDermott, CCHS Class of 1960. Many friends and family of Monsignor will be in attendance to honor his special commitment to the students of Camden Catholic, which they have shown in their funding support of this special project.

The school will also host the Hocker family who will offer special remarks on their foundation’s commitment to Catholic education through the support of scholarships throughout the Diocese of Camden as well as the naming of this amazing new library space at CCHS.

Renowned pediatrician Dr. John Tedeschi will also be recognized for his major support of the project with the naming of the John M. Tedeschi, MD Study Space.

The completion of the Hocker Information Commons and the Monsignor McDermott Collaborative Learning Center concludes a three-year $6.2 million capital campaign, in which funds were raised/pledged for a combination of scholarships, capital projects and the annual fund. Monsignor’s Learning Center, or “the cube” as it has become known among students, hosts an innovative learning area equipped with software to enable students to present and collaborate on various projects. A memorial plaque at the entrance to the space will remind students of the great impact Monsignor has had on Camden Catholic students, especially his beloved Irish basketball team.

Camden Catholic students will be welcoming guests with a musical quartet and touring guests throughout the space with demonstrations of the new computer technology.
