Community activists honored for work in Camden

Four community leaders were honored last week by the philanthropic arm of one of Camden's most prominent corporate citizens for working to improve life in the city. The Campbell Soup Foundation presented awards to Anthony J. Perno 3d, Curtis Myers, Bridget Phifer, and Sabine Mehnert. Perno, a councilman in Merchantville, was awarded the foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award and a $5,000 grant.

He is chief executive officer of the Cooper's Ferry Partnership, a nonprofit focused on revitalizing and promoting Camden as a place to live, work, visit, and invest. "What drives me are the people within the city of Camden and the region," Perno, 37, said after the ceremony at Campbell's downtown Camden headquarters.
