Dear John,

         I have attached two copies of an article from the Spring 2017 Edition of the St. Barnabas High School News Letter, CONNECTIONS about two JASPERS – Marianne Reilly, ’78 and Nadia Peters, ’07.

        (The first attachment is a typed copy of the Article w/outphoto, the second a scanned copy of the Article.)

         My connection with the High School is that my wife Cathie, and two of her sisters, are alumnae as are our threedaughters!

         Please feel free to post as much or as little as you think appropriate.

Two Saint Barnabas High School Grads Alumnae, Friends, Colleagues
By: Linda Arnegger Corcoran ‘66

Life is often six degrees of separation. Many of us connect the dots in so many ways each and every day. Separated by three decades, two Saint Barnabas High School alumnae’s parallel paths led them to the same place.

Marianne Reilly ’78 was a star basketball athlete at Saint Barnabas High School. As a freshman, she took three buses to get to school, but knew that Saint Barnabas was the right fit for her academically and athletically.

Nadia Peters ’07 knew she wanted to go to a high school that prepared her for college, while satisfying her love of sports. While at Barnabas, Nadia participated in soccer, track and basketball, graduating with an Advanced Regents Diploma.

Two Paths – Same Goals!

Marianne Reilly was the first female recipient of a Manhattan College Athletic scholarship. As a student athlete, Marianne often wondered who might be the first woman to be inducted into Manhattan College’s Athletic Hall of Fame. In 1992, Marianne became that woman! Reilly holds the distinction of being recognized as one of the greatest players of the first 30 seasons in Manhattan College’s Women’s Basketball History. After graduation, Marianne went on to teaching and became a basketball coach. She holds a master’s degree in education administration from Lehman College, and, in 1999, earned a professional diploma from Fordham University’s Graduation School of Education in administration and supervision.

Reilly accepted a position at Fordham University’s Athletic Department and rose through the ranks. In 1996, Marianne became Senior Associate Athletic Director, where, in addition to overseeing compliance and eligibility, she served as a liaison to a number of intercollegiate teams, athletic training, strength and conditioning, intermural and club sport programs. Marianne also served on numerous university and conference working groups, including the Atlantic 10 Strategic Planning Committee.

Six months ago, Marianne returned to Manhattan College and was named Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at Manhattan College – another first for a woman to hold that position in Manhattan College’s history! Marianne continues to give back to Saint Barnabas High School as Vice Chair of its Board of Trustees. “You can never forget where your formative years were developed. I am proud to be part of the Saint Barnabas High School Board,” Reilly said.

Nadia Peters also had her eye on Manhattan College while she was attending Saint Barnabas, and was awarded a full athletic scholarship there. Another high achiever, both academically and athletically, Nadia holds the record for most blocks in Manhattan’s women’s basketball and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology with a minor in business and religion and a masters in counseling with a concentration in school counseling, graduating Magnum Cum Laude. Currently, Nadia is Assistant Director of Employer Relations in Manhattan College’s Center for Career Development Department. Peters feels that the sky is the limit in achieving her career goals, and credits Saint Barnabas High School for her path to success.

Several years ago, Marianne and Nadia shared their stories as alumnae of both schools and their love of sports. Each is proud that they are now part of the Manhattan College Team of professionals. They are true examples of the many focused and strong women who continue to receive their educational foundation from Saint Barnabas High School, and the sisterhood that endures.
