DCAT Supports Teachers, Students and Science


Robbinsville, NJ, July 12, 2010 – It was a great day for golf and science education at the DCAT Annual Golf Outing on July 8 at Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, New Jersey.

“This is such a terrific event,” said DCAT President Joe Principe of Piramal Healthcare. “The golf outing gives our members a chance to network with their colleagues in a casual environment while supporting science teachers and students in the classroom through the DCAT Making a Difference Award.”

The 2010 recipients of the DCAT Making a Difference Award, an initiative with the National Science Teachers Association that recognizes outstanding teachers who develop innovative science education programs for middle and high school students, were Dennis Foreman of Zane Trace Middle School in Chillicothe, Ohio and Susan Hrenko of Worthington Kilbourne High School in Columbus, Ohio.

Following a reception and dinner, Mr. Principe and DCAT Executive Director Margaret Timony thanked the program volunteers and sponsors who made the event possible. They also awarded prizes for the best overall foursome, closest to the pin, and longest drive.
