Among the first students admitted to the program in the fall of 2007 was Joe Long, the son of Irish immigrants who came to New York from Arklow, Co. Wicklow in the 1920s. Joe grew up near a neighborhood made famous by the classic film On the Waterfront. A senior sales and management director with United Technologies Group, Joe already had a lifelong passion for the study of Ireland from his undergraduate days

A senior sales and management director with United Technologies Group, Joe already had a lifelong passion for the study of Ireland from his undergraduate days in Manhattan College. He took a scenic route through the M.A. program, mainly due to the pressures of his busy job, but he graduated in 2012, having completed a thesis based on oral histories with the Irish in Chelsea and Greenwich Village that was later published in the annual journal New York Irish History.  Joe is still pursuing that interest by working on a documentary film and he generously returns to the classroom to share his experiences with our undergraduate students.

Putnam Names County Undersheriff
Paul Boscia, who just recently retired from the Sheriff’s Office, will take the post.

Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith announces that he has named Paul Boscia as the new Undersheriff of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

Boscia’s appointment fills a vacancy in the position following the untimely death on Nov. 15, 2016 of the previous long-time Undersheriff, Peter Convery.

Boscia’s official appointment as Undersheriff will commence on Feb. 6 and is effective through the remainder of Smith’s current elected term of office, which runs through Dec. 31, 2017.

*** and ***

In addition to his long police service, Boscia has served his country in the Air Force, first serving as an active member for ten years before joining the Sheriff’s Office and then continuing as a member of the Air Force Reserve until retiring in 2006 at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

Boscia holds a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. He and his wife, Regina, reside in Putnam County, where they have raised their four children.

“The death of Undersheriff Peter Convery left a big hole in our hearts and it also left big shoes to fill in leading the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office and in serving our citizens,” said Smith in the announcement. “I am grateful to Paul Boscia and to his wife, Regina, for temporarily putting their retirement plans on hold and for answering the call to duty for the people of Putnam County.

Following the Sheriff’s announcement, Boscia said that he is “honored by the Sheriff’s appointment” and that he is “privileged to serve as his Undersheriff.” Boscia went on to express confidence that his long experience in the Sheriff’s Office will enable him to serve the County well in his new role: “The Sheriff is an outstanding leader and I am prepared, together with the very capable command staff of the Sheriff’s Office, to assist him in fulfilling our mission to serve and protect the community with professionalism and dedication.”

COMMENT: O’Connell, Bill (MC1976) shares another wedding “save”

2016-Oct-16

Re: Refugee.

This may not be a refugee story, but 30 years ago when planning our wedding, my wife was trying to find the perfect wedding dress. A neighbor of my best man was an Iranian gentleman (his wife was Guatamalan) had a dress shop in Manhattan. He offered to make my wife a custom wedding dress as a wedding gift. I knew him as an acquaintance, but I wouldn’t say he was a close friend. One of the features that my wife wanted was a long train on the dress, longer than Princess Diana. Done. Now, having a long train might be fun for the wedding, but it can be a bit of a pain for the reception. He included a hidden zipper so that after the wedding ceremony, the train could be removed for easier dining and dancing. Needless to say he and his wife were guests at the wedding. It was a very touching gesture.

Sweeney Appointed Interim Guidance Director of Somers Schools
By TOM BARTLEY
July 15, 2016 at 11:15 AM

*** begin quote ***

SOMERS, N.Y. – Robert Sweeney, a veteran guidance counselor with extensive experience in college admissions, will fill in next year as the director of guidance in Somers schools, replacing Dr. Deborah Hardy.

*** and ***

Hardy’s interim replacement, a retiree from the Mamaroneck school system, will not require Somers to make either health insurance payments or contributions to the state retirement plan.

Sweeney left Mamaroneck in 2014 after 26 years in guidance, then spent last year as Harrison High School’s interim guidance coordinator. In 1986, he completed a 14-year run as director of admissions for Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry.

A one-time teacher, Sweeney is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a bachelor of arts in English and of Manhattan College, where he earned his master’s degree in guidance and counseling. He has twice been president of the Westchester Putnam Rockland Guidance Association.

In the district’s email to parents, Sweeney was quoted as saying his appointment is “a wonderful opportunity for me to work with the dedicated faculty, students and parents of Somers. I look forward to building relationships and identifying ways we can support our community further.”
