ACE Greater Philadelphia is proud to welcome a new team to their affiliate! The Camden, NJ Team, led by Erica Anderson-Blaylock (City Invincible) and Ron Kerins (Greyhawk, ACE Board Vice-Chairman), formed when Kerins spearheaded the expansion effort of ACE Greater Philadelphia into New Jersey and brought City Invincible on board. Dedicated mentors from Oracle, Synergy Environmental, and Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating joined Greyhawk and City Invincible to provide practical knowledge of and exposure to the A/C/E industries.
“Forming this team relates to City Invincible’s mission to expand our connection to our local and larger community,” said Anderson-Baylock. “Our students like knowing that our work is local to Camden and enjoy hearing about what’s happening in their neighborhoods. They are able to personally connect with our projects because they find them to be relatable and relative to their daily experiences.”
The team, consisting of fifteen hardworking students from Mastery High School of Camden and the Kipp Cooper Norcross Academy, began meeting at City Invincible’s offices in January. “The students are intelligent, respectful young men and women. They are enjoying the opportunity to participate in A/C/E related activities at a professional office,” mentioned Anderson-Baylock. “They are extremely interested in the subject matter we present to them each week. It is satisfying to watch their lightbulbs go off as they work through a new concept.”
