Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay, center, in blue shirt, accepted and fulfilled an ALS Ice Water Bucket Challenge today and was joined by students and staff. And if you look closely – that’s Student Trustee Gardy Amilcar dousing Dr. McKay with a bucket of ice water! Suffolk Community College students manned the buckets.

President McKay was challenged by Suffolk County Legislator and Deputy Presiding Officer Jay Schneiderman.

In turn, President McKay challenged Suffolk County Legislator and Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory; Noel DiGerolamo, president of the Suffolk County Policeman’s Benevolent Association; John Durso, president of the Long Island Federation of Labor; and Dick O’Kane, longtime business manager, executive secretary and treasurer of Ironworkers Local 361, and head the Building and Construction Trades Council of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, to take the ALS Ice Water Challenge!

Suffolk County Community College Nursing, NY State’s Largest Program, Prepares For Celebration.

Honoring nurses who served in the military, the gathering of oral histories and displays of retrospective memorabilia are all part of Suffolk County Community College’s School of Nursing’s plans for a celebration beginning this fall and culminating with the school’s 50th pinning ceremony next May.

The Suffolk County Community College School of Nursing boasts more than 7,100 alumni, is the largest program in New York State and the sixth largest in the nation.

The Suffolk County Community College School of Nursing Class of 2015 will be “pinned” with a special commemorative pin created for the 50th pinning celebration.

The School of Nursing is asking all alumni to contact the College to become part of a celebration leading up to the 50th pinning ceremony on May 15, 2015. All those volunteering to help organize the event will be designated alumni ambassadors and deputized to help spread the word about the anniversary and its significance.

“We are very proud to graduate nursing professionals who have worked in our communities for a half century,” said College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “One of our College’s highly competitive programs and the largest in the state, our nursing program’s excellence is directly attributable to our faculty, staff, and students who are committed to nursing education. We are also very proud that a majority of our nursing graduates remain right here in our region where they serve with pride and distinction.”

“Our nursing student body is diverse and highly motivated,” said College Associate Dean, School of Nursing Dr. Cheryl Shaffer, “they graduate as nursing leaders committed to helping individuals, families and communities.”

“The 50th pinning ceremony and events leading up to next May’s event will provide an excellent opportunity for the thousands of alumni who graduated from our School of Nursing to reconnect with their friends, former professors and college community,” said Dr. Sylvia A. Diaz, Interim Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.

Partnerships with top hospitals, long-term care and community agencies in Suffolk County provide students with outstanding clinical experiences.  Clinical sites include St. Charles Hospital and Rehabilitation Center and John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson; Peconic Bay Medical Center, Riverhead; Stony Brook University Hospital; Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, West Islip; Southside Hospital-North Shore LIJ, Bay Shore; St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center, Smithtown; Huntington Hospital-North Shore LIJ, Huntington; Eastern Long Island Hospital, Greenport; and the Pilgrim Psychiatric Center in West Brentwood.

Alumni who wish to volunteer or are seeking additional information can contact the Office of Alumni Relations by email at: alumni@sunysuffolk.edu  or call (631) 451-4941.

Resplendent Water by JoAnne Dumas at Suffolk County Community College Eastern Campus Sept. 2 – Oct. 24

Joanne Dumas is a photographer inspired by the tantalizing qualities of water.

Dumas’ expansive works contain up to 10 continuous panels of dancing reflections, a panorama of color, pattern, and form, or contain undulating surfaces representing the rhythmic motion of water.  Others are made of translucent rice paper which hang in front of a light source, or away from a lit wall allowing light to bounce through.  Ms. Dumas works with metallic pigments and diamond dust creating a pearlescent surface akin to the shimmering surfaces of water.  The end result is impressionist photography that at times harkens to Monet’s Water Lilies.

The Lyceum Gallery, located on the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College, Riverhead, is pleased to present JoAnne Dumas: Resplendent Water from September 2 through October 24, 2014.

A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, September 18, 2014 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and is open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

Dumas, of Wading River, earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Duma has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions and her work is featured in a number of private and corporate collections. Dumas is the recipient of grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA): SOS 2008, SOS 2010, MARK 2009 Professional Training Grant and the 2010 NYFA Artist Consultant Grant. She participated in the FGM New York Art Symposium and International Artist Exchange Program in 2013 and teaches Visual Arts at Suffolk County Community College.   For more information about the artist, please visit her website at www.dumasphoto.com.

For directions please call 631-548-2536. Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The gallery is closed on Sundays and holidays.
