Graduation for Fishkill Cohort 905
Twenty-two students who completed Nyack’s Bachelor of Science in organizational management program at the Fishkill Correctional Facility recently received their diplomas.
Provost David Turk presented the graduates to President Michael G. Scales, who conferred degrees on the Nyack College Beacon Campus graduates, as their families and friends looked on this milestone moment. The ceremony included remarks from Executive Director of Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison, Sean Pica, who is also a 2001 Nyack graduate of the Sing Sing Prison program.
Pictured at the ceremony are (l-r) alumnus Derrick Barnes; Hudson Link Executive Director Sean Pica; Corrections Officer Colleen Manning; keynote speaker Keith Bethel; instructor, Jamila Wright; President Michael Scales and Provost Dr. David. Turk
A message of gratitude from the Class of 2016 was printed in the commencement program: “We acknowledge that we are not owed anything and that this privilege provided to us is based on the belief that education offers empowerment for new beginnings.”
