Tyrone S. Pannell – A Remarkable Young Man

I knew of Tyrone Pannell – the athlete. We were the same age, in the same city, competing in track and field but the similarity ended there. He was one of New York City¦s finest and most versatile athletes ever and its premiere track and field star of the late 1950’s and early 60’s.

In the Spring of 1997, I proposed his long overdue induction into the Manhattan College Sports Hall of Fame. It was only then, researching his accomplishments and meeting former classmates and teammates, that I learned about Tyrone Pannell – the person, and the outstanding human being that he was.

I never had the privilege of meeting him but I had the pleasure of meeting his wife and daughter at his posthumous induction ceremony. I was stunned to learn from his daughter, Tracy, that he and I had been pretty close for many years. In 1985 I had bought a book: “Dear America – Letters Home From Vietnam.” Unbeknownst to me, one of the letters was from twenty-three year old Marine Lieutenant Tyrone Pannell to his infant daughter:

August 11, 1965

Dear Tracy,

The things I want to say to you can never be fully expressed in words. I want so very much to say the things that will make you understand how very much I love you. Before you were born I, like most men, wanted a son. But when I saw you for the first time just a few minutes old, I knew I could never love a son the way I loved you. For a son grows and becomes a man while a daughter is always a child to be loved and cared for. More than anything I want you to know me and love me. The next time I see you, you will be a little lady, walking and talking. Learn how to say “Daddy. I love you with all my heart.”

Love, Daddy

Most fittingly, his nomination was approved on the eve of Father’s Day. From time-to-time, I jog at Manhattan College and when I do, I look up at Tyrone Pannell’s Hall of Fame banner and sense his presence and a bond of brotherhood.

Bronx Zoo Director Jim Breheny Sworn-In as Chair of the Board at Association of Zoos and Aquariums

Indianapolis, Indiana, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) is announcing the swearing-in of Jim Breheny, Director of the Bronx Zoo, as the new Chair of the AZA Board of Directors.

“Jim has been a strong and influential voice within the AZA community for years. Jim’s experience in animal welfare and husbandry, combined with an incredible commitment to field conservation and saving species, make him well-suited to lead us as the next chair of the AZA Board of Directors,” said Dan Ashe, President and CEO of AZA. “I have had the opportunity to spend time with Jim – both at the Bronx Zoo and among his colleagues. He is a respected member of our community and will help us continue to advance our profession.”

As Chair of the Board, Breheny, along with three other executive officers and nine Board members, will be involved in every aspect of the national organization, including accreditation, ethics, animal welfare, and conservation. Each year, AZA’s 231 accredited facilities collectively contribute $216 million to field conservation projects that help to protect species across the world, serve more than 196 million visitors, welcome more than 12 million students on educational field trips, contribute $22.5 billion to the U.S. economy and support 208,000 jobs. 

“Our mission as leaders in the zoo and aquarium community all boils down to this: we need to provide the best care and welfare for the individual animals we keep,” said Breheny. “We must manage the species we keep sustainably for the future; and we must connect our animals and our exhibits to species in the wild and inspire and empower our visitors to support our efforts to save these species and their habitats.  As members of this association, we must be active agents of conservation.  We must continue to challenge ourselves, to increase our efforts and funding for saving species and protecting the areas in which they live.” 

As WCS Executive Vice President and General Director, Zoos and Aquarium and Director of the Bronx Zoo, Breheny is responsible for the operation and management of the Bronx Zoo, the New York Aquarium, the Central Park, Prospect Park and Queens Zoos. Collectively, the zoos and aquarium house over 14,000 animals representing 1,500 species. Jim earned a B.S. in Biology from Manhattan College and an M.S. in Biology from Fordham University. He has been with WCS for 44 years, 36 years as a full-time staff member. A former Curatorial Science Fellow and Curator, he was named General Curator in 2004, Director of the Bronx Zoo in 2005 and was appointed General Director in 2011. Jim was an adjunct professor of Biology at Manhattan College from 1988 – 2005. In 2016, Breheny launched, along with Animal Planet, a television docu-series called THE ZOO, which provides insights into the dedicated and diverse skills of the staff at the zoo as they care for the animals and work to save species. The series is currently taping its second season.
