In the new episode Camden County, viewers meet Karanveer Pannu, an Eastern Regional High School graduate and Rutgers-Camden law student with a lifelong passion for civic engagement, public service, supporting diversity and tolerance. That passion has led to local and national acclaim and a roster of impressive accomplishments, including interning for U.S. Senator Cory Booker and U.S. Representative Donald Norcross, winning numerous academic and service awards, and writing and publishing his own book, Bullying of Sikh American Children: Through the Eyes of a Sikh American High School Student. He was the first member of the Sikh faith to sit on a Voorhees Township committee as a senior in college, serving a four-year term on the town’s zoning board. Pannu now travels the nation as a bullying prevention specialist, speaking at schools and conferences with the goal of reducing bullying while educating fellow Americans about the Sikh faith. To that end, he works with the Rutgers–Camden Sikh Students Association to broaden the understanding of the religion in the campus community.
