School of Education Homecoming Dinner

Posted by Eric.Nygard on Friday October 24, 2014

The Nyack College School of Education Homecoming Dinner was held in the Presidents Hall

at Shuman on Friday, October 10th, 2014. We enjoyed a fine dinner and fellowship centered 

around the moving testimonies of Nyack School of Education alumni.

Dr. Looney welcomed everyone and expressed her appreciation for our outstanding SOE 


Dr. Harrigan kept the evening moving along with amusing stories. At one point he showed 

us that there was a common theme among the testimonies we heard – that working with the 

students who were the neediest resulted in the most amazing stories. All agreed that this is why 

we teach. 

We are very proud of our alumni and current students in the School of Education, and we can’t 

wait to hear even more amazing accounts!
