J. Harold Van Zant

J. Harold Van Zant was a special person in Evesham. He was born in Camden, New Jersey, but later moved to Evesham where he lived for forty years! Mr. Van Zant had a family and two daughters who went to the Evesham schools. What made him so special was that Mr. Van Zant gave a lot of his time to the township of Evesham. He served the community in many ways - here's how:

He was:

  • President of the Fire Company and Ambulance Squad
  • Superintendent of the Marlton Baptist Church & Sunday School
  • Manager of Several Local Businesses
  • School Board & PTA Member for 25 years
  • Member of the Local Barbershop Singing Group
  • Active Leader on Local Recreational Youth programs

Whew! No wonder we named our school after him!
