JNEWS: Frawley, Liam T. [MC1990] fundraiser



Casino night could help get Liam Frawley a van, more therapy
By Nancy Haggerty, nhaggerty@lohud.com November 10, 2016

Liam Frawley has been home since Sept. 1. But countless hours of speech, occupational and physical therapies lie ahead of the Tappan Zee athletic director, who suffered a burst brain aneurism last January and still can’t walk or speak.

The 48-year-old father of a 14- and 16-year-old requires costly home aide services and his wife of 22 years, Janine, wants to get a wheelchair-accessible van to take him to his three-hour, twice-weekly therapy sessions at Helen Hayes Hospital and to also just get him out of their New City house more often.

She’d also like to hire a speech therapist to work with him at home.

Those things will be costly, which is one reason for Saturday’s “Guys Night Out” casino fundraiser.

The night, which is billed as a men’s event, will include blackjack, craps, roulette, a cigar bar and a showing of the first ever UFC fight at Madison Square Garden. It will run 7 p.m. until 1 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus on Bailey Street in Blauvelt.

This will be the third benefit for Frawley, who is paralyzed on his right side.

JNEWS: Bouyer, Ken [MC1990] “Whose shoulders are you standing on?”



Questions Are Tools for Career Success, Bouyer Tells Graduates
May 24, 2016
By: Diane Stirling 

*** begin quote ***

Among all the questions posed to students during their years of schooling, and all those they’ve asked themselves throughout their college years, School of Information Studies Convocation speaker and EY executive Ken Bouyer pitched the graduates a few more.

“Whose shoulders are you standing on?” he questioned, explaining, “None of us got here alone.” And then: “What’s the next phase of questions you’ll face?”

Ken Bouyer speaking at the 2016 iSchool Convocation ceremony

Bouyer, EY’s director of inclusiveness recruiting, told the iSchool’s 2016 graduating classes that from now on, the questions they will ask, and answer, in life will be of a very different nature than the ones they’ve used to learn and to collect information. Now, “those questions are going to make the world better,” he said. That’s because questions aren’t simply what you ask when you don’t know; they serve as tools you can use to bridge cultures, different workstyles, diverse backgrounds, and opposing viewpoints, he advised. “Questions are what you ask when you want to unlock possibilities, harness the power of different perspectives, drive innovation. They’re what you ask when you refuse to settle for the way it’s always been, when you want to grow, develop and improve yourself and the world around you,” Bouyer said.
