Honors students attend National Collegiate Honors Council

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Tuesday November 12, 2013

Honors student-delegates Jacqueline Bourdette and Rachel Kunker attended the 48th Annual Conference of the National Collegiate Honors Council in New Orleans as representatives of the Nyack Honors Program. Over 2,000 honors students and directors from large and small college and university honors programs and colleges convened to explore this year’s theme: “Conflict, Transformation, Creolization.” 

Though there were many excellent student panels, director’s presentations, and special events, Ruby Bridges’s  keynote address was a highlight. “On November 14, 1960, surrounded by armed US Marshalls, six-year-old Ruby Bridges integrated William Frantz Elementary in New Orleans.“  Ms. Bridges spoke about the means for continuing a vibrant dialogue and educational programing to address the need for tolerance, respect, and appreciation for our differences.  Nyack students will present their experience at an upcoming Honors Seminar.

Dr. Jonathan Gates, Professor of English, is Director of the Honors Program at the Rockland Campus.
