York College Hosts High School Counselors Breakfast

York College recently hosted its first in-personhigh school counselorbreakfast since the COVID pandemic began in 2020.

The audience represented Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx, and Long Island. It was also great to see representatives from community-based organizations in attendance. It was a sorely missed event, and we are glad we can all come together in this manner again to network over a meal. The September 30th (2022) event included presentations by a cross-section of the York College community on academics, Admissions, SEEK, the ACE program, and students’ experience. The presentations were rich in content and skillfully orchestrated by our emcee, Mr. Anthony Davis, Director of Admissions. 

One of the program's many highlights was listening to Student Government President, Nish-Hoa Mullings. Ms. Mullings spoke spoke eloquently about why she chose York as the right fit for her, commuting from the Bronx. It was apparent that Mullings' genuine and kind voice resonated with everyone in the room. The last part of the event was giving counselors a tour of the recently-completed capital projects, meant to serve and educate students more efficiently. It included the new state-of-the-art science labs and lecture halls.

In addition to Ms. Mullings, presenters included, Nicholas Jones, Interim Executive Director of Enrollment Management, Anthony Davis, Director of Admissions, Dr. George White Jr., Interim Dean - School of Arts and Science; Dr. Maureen Becker, Dean of the School of Health Sciences and Professional Programs and Interim Dean of the School of Business; Hopeton Allen, Interim Director of SEEK; Dr. Rishi Nath, Professor, Mathematics and Computer Science; Mark Adams, Lecturer - Performing and Fine Arts; Jackie Rosseau, Founding Director of ACE. 

We are especially thankful to Dr. Berenecea Johnson Eanes, President of York College; Dr. Derrick Brazill, Interim Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs; Dr. Karen Williams, Interim Vice President, Enrollment Management and Student Affairs; Dr. Jame Salnave, Interim Assistant Dean, Student Affairs and Enrollment Management; and all colleagues, who helped to make the event a success.
