Gerald Grant – MCNY Commencement Speaker

May 4, 2010

From now until the end of May, we will be profiling our Commencement speakers. Commencement is on June 12th, 2010 at Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Gerald Grant
Journalist, Historian…Professor at Syracuse University.  The World We Created at Hamilton Highportrays the dilemmas of the schools today, especially those conditions that cause public schools to retreat behind a façade of bureaucratic legalism and to abandon the attempt to forge a sense of community. Latest book, Hope and Despair in the American City: Why There Are No Bad Schools in Raleigh is a tale of Northern cities, in particular author Gerald Grant’s native Syracuse, N.Y where failing schools torpedo all attempts at urban revitalization. Against that backdrop, Grant presents Wake County’s system as the single best example of the opposite case: a few Southern cities where good schools are driving increased prosperity.  Gerald Grant is particularly interesting because of the article that he wrote on Audrey Cohen College at its start.

Reflections of Graduation: MS Ed., Master of Science in Childhood Education

September 8, 2009

MCNY recently celebrated its 32nd commencement ceremony.

Throughout the summer, we posted  reflections from the graduates about their experiences.

Last but not least we have Lesile Kaplan, a graduate of the Master of Science in Education program:

A little over a year ago I enrolled in the one year Masters of Science in Childhood Education program. From the beginning, I set myself a goal to graduate with a 4.0 GPA. Everyone thought I was crazy to put that kind of pressure on myself during such a rigorous program. But my perseverance and determination, was the direct result of my philosophy that if one puts one’s mind to it, one can achieve anything in life. And all of you graduating here today are proof of that..”

Reflections of Graduation: Bachelor of Business Administration

July 28, 2009

MCNY recently celebrated its 32nd commencement ceremony.

Throughout the summer, we will continue to post reflections from the graduates about their experiences.

This one is from Nerissa Williams, a graduate of the Bachelor of  Business Administration program:

When I began my journey as a student at MCNY, I did so with joy and sorrow, joy at the prospect of earning a degree and sorrow at the thought of leaving my loved ones and family to venture into an unknown world far away from the place I call home.

Indeed, on my first day of school, I quickly realized there weren’t any other Grenadians in my class. However, the friendliness of the faculty, staff and my fellow classmates soon laid all my fears to rest and before long I came to feel that MCNY was my home away from home.

– Nerissa Williams, Bachelor of  Business Administration
