Yedowitz, the soft-spoken Rye boys track coach known for his commitment to his sport and for consistently fielding competitive teams, died Wednesday, four days after coaching a Rye relay squad and just hours after revising a lineup from his hospital bed for an upcoming meet.

Yedowitz, 70, who ran for Manhattan College (Class of 1970) before joining the Rye School District as a health teacher in 1975 and later also teaching physical education, succumbed to pancreatic cancer that had metastasized.

She is energetic. She is excited. She is motivated. Richard  Bland College of William & Mary (RBC) psychology professor Dr. Tiffany Birdsong always walks into her class with a smile on her face, eager to teach and prepare students for their careers.

“Teaching is a difficult profession that is often overlooked,” explains Birdsong. “It requires patience and perserverence.”

*** and ***

A Long Island, New York native, Birdsong was a first-generation college student at Manhattan College. She then earned her master’s degree and doctoral degree in clinical psychology from La Salle University in Philadelphia. Afterward, she worked in Princeton, New Jersey before accepting the Richard Bland College position, for which she had been recommended by her post-doctoral supervisor at La Salle.

JEMAIL: Gilda, Bill (MC1962) asks “Who are the extremists?”

Who are the extremists?

Bill Gilda ’62

[JR: Saw that as an example of that “anti” mindset (i.e., anti-Catholic; anti-Semitic; anti-American; anti-peace, racist, champion of victimhood identify politics) among “democrats” and “liberals”.  The “democrats” and liberals are the new reborn KKK, imho!  And we tolerate them at our own peril.]
