Remembering Ernie Armoogam (1971-2008)
Of his passing, Dr. Michael Scales said, “He was one of my heroes.” Loved as well by students and colleagues, he served in Student Development as Director of Student Programs and was a Satellite Housing Residence Director. He was also Nyack's Head Coach for Women's Softball Coach.
While working at Mont Lawn Camp in Bushkill, PA, he spoke highly of Nyack students who worked there as summer counselors. Armoogam commented on how the students reflected Nyack’s five core values and “exceeded the expectations” as they “bonded together and with other people demonstrating what they received at school.”
The Nyack College community will celebrate Ernie's life on the Rockland County campus. Sunday, October 19 from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. , a viewing will be held in Pardington Hall. The Homegoing Celebration will also be held in Pardington Hall on Monday, October 20 at noon, followed by the interment.
Cards may be mailed to his mother, Mrs. Iris Febus, 2609 Briggs Avenue, Bronx, New York 10468.
