JNEWS: Burke, Nate [MC2011] honored with “Cop and a Kid” trophy



March 14, 2019 12:51 PM

COLONIE – Depending on your perspective, we’re either several months before or several months past the annual Capital Holiday Lights in the Park, the annual fundraiser for Albany’s Police Athletic League. Either way, that helps support so many programs. And on Thursday morning at the Albany Marriott, supporters and graduates were honored with “Cop and a Kid” trophies.

“It’s external validation for all the hard work I’ve done,” said Nate Burke, who joined PAL at age 13. He is now 29 and a PhD candidate studying economics at the University of Arkansas. “PAL was a huge part of me growing up.”

Burke was among four honorees along with Paula Stopera of Capital Communications Federal Credit Union, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple and David Bauer, PAL’s third ever board chairman. Business leaders from around the region attended Breakfast of Champions.

*** and ***

But it was messages by PAL Alumni Joe Filomeno and Burke that resonated for so many.

“As a kid, I developed really late, I was having a rough time in school,” Burke said. “As a child, I spent most of my time in Brooklyn with my grandmother and so transitioning, coming up here and everything was really hard for me, I didn’t really have anywhere I fit in.”

He said one day officer Kelly Kimbrough rolled up in a police car and asked him if he needed a ride. That changed his life, Burke said.

“That’s when everything changed for me and I found a much better group of people, mentors to actually guide me,” Burke said. “And that’s when I switched from not really having direction to knowing that, OK, I don’t know exactly what I want to do but I want to do something that’s going to help benefit my community.”

Burke created PAL’s track program and went to Manhattan College on a scholarship. Then he earned his Masters from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and now is at the University of Arkansas.

“I went to Alaska and Arkansas just because of him,” said Burke’s mother Iris Osorio. “Alaska’s beautiful, Arkansas’ very hot.”

And Burke’s message: “Kids should be our entire investment…I think sometimes we as adults now forget that everything we’re doing is just setting the stage for tomorrow’s generation. So above all we have to make sure the kids come first.”

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Ken and family


Wed, Mar 13, 6:00 PM (18 hours ago)

Good Afternoon All,

I have just spoken with Ken and I heard earlier in the week from Madeline and I can tell you that Ken is doing well. I spoke briefly with Ken because his dinner had just been brought in and he wanted to get to that before it got cold. As Ken says ” We have been to hell and back but I am doing good.” when Ken says We, he is talking about Madeline, their Children, Kenneth, Karen, Thomas, Steven and their Family. Friends like Jim Brown and others. They have been in this together and it has made a difference. When I spoke with Ken, he had that spark and commitment in his voice that we all know and that was great to hear. Losing a leg is no picnic, but Ken and his wonderful Family are making it work. Is it hard, yes, will Ken be stronger, he already is. It was great to talk with him. I am sure he would love to hear from you. He is at: CareOne 600 Kinderkamack Rd. Oradell, N.J. 07649 (201) 967 – 0002 Room 121

Ken and his Family so appreciate your prayers and Good Wishes. Please keep the volume up for this good man. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
