ARP Spring Reunion Luncheon was held on Thursday, June 1, 2017, noon
Retired faculty and staff met for lunch at the Park Café on Thursday, June 1, our annual pre-commencement lunch. They celebrated the 60th anniversary of the college, viewed a slide show of the the college over the years, and shared stories.
Here is a picture taken at our annual luncheon last year
In the center of our picture is Basilio Allen, the recipient of the ARP Scholarship for 2015-2016. We were pleased that he could join us and moved by his account of coming up through foster care to become a successful student at the College of Staten Island. He is a joint major in Sociology/Anthropology and Dramatic Arts. He also volunteered at the Center for Accessibility and organized several performance groups on his own.
