Nyack College Confers Degrees at Fishkill Correctional Facility
Twenty graduates received the Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management from Nyack College before an audience gathered at Fishkill Correctional Facility in Fishkill, NY on Tuesday, August 27. Actor, (The Ex, Beethoven, Beethoven's 2nd), activist, and former talk show host, Charles Grodin, was the commencement speaker.
This graduation ceremony was just a snapshot of the personal transformation that represents Nyack’s advocacy for prison education and the partnership formed with Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison, headed by 2001 Nyack alumnus, Sean Pica. For the first time in the history of the Hudson Link program, which was founded in 1998, two 2013 graduates earned their degrees with distinction.
We salute the tenacity and diligence of these 20 new Nyack alumni as well as the commitment of the administrators, faculty, donors, and families who invested in lives who are not locked out of the opportunity for higher education.
