Leadership Retreat 2015

Posted by Cezanne.Perez on Friday August 28, 2015

On Tuesday, August 18th, Nyack College NYC student leaders gathered together for our annual Leadership Retreat. Over a dozen leaders came out for the one-day event to strengthen their natural abilities to lead. Our special guest speaker Jeff Quinn gave an excellent presentation on team building and the lessons we can learn from Rehoboam, the successor of Solomon. Esther Jhun, our Student Counselor, reinforced the importance of good time management. The team grabbed lunch at Chipotle and ended the day with some trust building activities. We're looking forward to a great semester with our rockstar leaders!

The Original Aussies

Posted by Cezanne.Perez on Thursday April 23, 2015

On April 20th, Nyack College student Janette James put together a production titled "The Original Aussies - A Look Into the Indigenous History of Australia." The program featured a brief history of "The Stolen Generations," a dark period of injustice towards the indigenous population of Australia. The personal story of Janette was extremely moving as she made a public announcement of forgiveness on behalf of both her grandmother and the indigenous population. The program also included art, photos, maps, and flags, to provide students with a better understanding of Australia. Terry Ann Salmon, Evan Peet, and Yessica Lopez also stepped in to lend a hand in putting on this production. Thanks, Janette, for providing us with this eye-opening event!
