Berkeley College student Karen Pion, of Edison, was among 137 students named to the 2024 ALL IN Student Voting Honor Roll, recognizing college students nationwide who do outstanding work to advance nonpartisan democratic engagement on campus. 

This is the third consecutive year a Berkeley College student has been recognized. 

“Whether it’s a presidential election year or one with critical state and local races on the ballot, students have a powerful role to play in fostering active and engaged campuses and getting their peers to participate in our democracy,” said Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, Executive Director, ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge 

“Ahead of the 2024 presidential election, the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is honored to celebrate 137 student leaders who model nonpartisan democratic engagement,” Domagal-Goldman said. “These honorees hosted candidate information sessions, created guides on polling location accessibility, registered their peers to vote, and so much more. We know these students will continue to make a difference in our democracy.” 

The nonprofit, nonpartisan ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge engages more than 1,000 colleges and universities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. 

As a student leader, Pion hosted informational sessions and tabling events, providing students with easy access to voter registration forms, and encouraging them to take the pledge to vote. As a parent, Pion sets an example for her children by teaching them the significance of democracy. 

“It is important that students exercise their right to vote because it gives them the ability to express their opinions and ideas about their education,” Pion said. 

Pion holds an associate degree in Business Administration – Management from Berkeley College and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the same field, with concentrations in Supply Chain and Human Resources Management. Following graduation, she plans to continue her education in pursuit of an MBA. 

Pion is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society and regularly volunteers at the Community FoodBank of New Jersey in Hillside. She is employed as a customs broker in the Cheese Department at All-Way Forwarding in Elizabeth.
