By Rebecca Portnoy, Associate Director of Communications, Concordia College

Dec. 18, 2019: Students earning degrees in a broad variety of undergraduate and master’s programs celebrated their achievement on Sunday, December 15th, at Concordia College’s second annual Winter Commencement.

Proud parents, friends and family members filled Sommer Center for the ceremony, while many more watched via Livestream in Schoenfeld Campus Center.

President John A. Nunes presented the Distinguished Alumnus Award to Kevin Cook ’76, Principle Gifts Officer for Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and Westchester Medical Center, calling him “an extraordinary model for our students on what it means to pursue a life of passion, purpose and service.”

The College awarded an Honorary Doctorate to Ruth Naomi Floyd for her unique and valuable contribution to the arts, her commitment to music education, and her compassionate care to people living with HIV and AIDS. Near the end of the program Floyd, a lauded composer and performer of sacred jazz, gave a soaring rendition of the College’s alma mater.

Student Representative Maryanne Cuomo ’11, ’19 summa cum laude shared her inspiring educational journey to her master’s in special childhood education, including the fact that her husband, Joseph Cuomo, was that day earning his own master’s in special childhood education, summa cum laude, from Concordia.

President Nunes noted that the graduates included over 40 nursing, radiologic technologies, biology and health sciences students, and that the excellence with which the College prepares students for careers in healthcare made Dr. Jill Kalman, Executive Director of Lenox Hill Hospital and a renowned expert in congestive heart failure, the perfect choice for commencement speaker. Dr. Kalman told the graduates: “Today is your Monday: your first day to start making your difference. Find your WHY for the journey. You are ready, and you are amazing.”

In his charge to the graduates, President Nunes spoke movingly of the difference between the temporary and the permanent, and the importance of placing value on the things that really matter.

Congratulations, graduates!

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
