As a follow-up to their first-ever reunion in May 2009, Nursing alumni and faculty were invited to hear the latest news about CSI. According to Jennifer Lynch, Associate Director of Alumni Relations, “We identified Nursing alumni as our inaugural group given their major presence in health care on Staten Island.”
Special guests included members of the Brooklyn Home for Aged Men, an organization that has generously donated to scholarships, some specifically for Nursing students. On hand for the evening were George C. Schaefer, Vice President and Treasurer; Jean C. Weber, Secretary; and Annette Schaefer, Director.
The program included remarks from Alumni Board President Vullnet Kolari, Esq ’98 who spoke briefly about the CSIAA and the importance of making connections at events like this. President Morales then provided highlights of CSI. He also thanked the Alumni Board and Office for all their hard work and dedication to the College. He also thanked the Brooklyn Home for their generosity to the college and to Nursing program scholarships.
Finally, Department Chair Mary O’Donnell discussed the latest Department news, including the fact that there was a 100% pass rate for CSI students for the NCLEX test. She also thanked everyone for their support of the Nursing program.
