Westbury's own Alphonse Campbell was recently honored by the Long Island University Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa (PDK), an international honorary society in education, as the organization's Man of the Millennium.
Campbell, a trustee for the Village of Westbury and one of the founding members of the Long Island University Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa, was recognized for "consistently making significant contributions over the 15-year life of the chapter."
Campbell was described by founding president Dr. Walter Mathews as "the conscience of the chapter, and as the person who is always ready to take on the job at hand - and get it done in a professional, efficient, and timely way."
Campbell was the fifth president of the Long Island University Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa, and cited by Dr. Mathews as "the most loyal member of the chapter."
Also honored was William DeGennaro of Huntington. Both men were presented to the 32 new members of the chapter as being "role models for all of us," and as "talented, successful, hard-working, dedicated and other-centered." They were also described as "caring people who have shown us by example the tenets of PDK: Leadership, Research and Service."
