Frederick Hansley ’12 The Suite Life: A Career in Hospitality Management

Frederick Hansley

The Suite Life: A Career in Hospitality Management

The Hotel and Resort Management program at Suffolk County Community College, strategically situated in Riverhead, is tailor-made to prepare students for rewarding careers in this booming industry….

Frederick Hansley graduated from the program in 2012 and was able to land a job right away at the Residence Inn in Holtsville as a result of connections made through the College’s job fair. Now, as the General Manager of the Hampton Inn in Islandia, N.Y., he reflects fondly about his education at Suffolk. “The professors have real-world backgrounds and I appreciated how the program is designed to provide hands-on experience for students,” he says.

Investigating Scott Higham ’79: Pulitzer Prize-Winning Graduate Tells All

Suffolk_Scott_Higham

Scott Higham ’79

Scott Higham is a Pulitzer Prize-winning member of the investigations unit of The Washington Post. He has examined the deaths of foster children, waste and fraud in Homeland Security contracts, the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib and conflicts of interest on Capitol Hill. He has also investigated the off-shore banking industry, the rise of ISIS and its use of U.S. social media, and the murder of Chandra Levy, among many other projects. After graduating from Suffolk, Mr. Higham attended Stony Brook University and the Columbia University School of Journalism.

How was your Suffolk experience?

I met people at Suffolk who wanted to succeed in life. I also had teachers who believed in me for the first time, and I began to excel as a student. Suffolk prepared me for a four-year college and the graduate school program I would later attend.

Where did your interest in journalism come from?

I fell in love with journalism when I walked into the newsroom of the student paper at Stony Brook University, The Stony Brook Press. I had graduated from Suffolk and was taking pre-law classes at Stony Brook but I saw journalism as a different way to perform a public service, see the world on someone else’s dime, and have some fun along the way. It was the best choice I ever made, besides becoming a father.

What excites you about what you do?

As a journalist, I get paid to tell the truth. There’s been a lot said about journalists being untruthful and that’s simply not true. When we make mistakes at The Washington Post, we are held accountable and can catch hell from our editors. If someone knowingly fabricates a story, they are fired on the spot. In my 30 years as a reporter, I’ve only seen it happen a handful of times. There are not many jobs that pay you for being honest. There are also not many jobs that put you in a position to witness history, to see things few people ever see, to learn from people in all stations of life and have fun every day you go to work. I feel like I have the best job on the planet, working as an advocate for the readers of The Washington Post, holding the powerful accountable and helping the less fortunate along the way. And the culture of a newsroom, with its creativity and energy and character, can’t be beat.

What are you most proud of?

I’m most proud to be part of a tradition that is so essential to our democracy. The founders of our country made the freedom of the press the First Amendment for a reason. Our work at The Washington Post, and the work being done by reporters across the country, helps to inform the public and expose corrupt politicians and abusive corporations. There are few higher callings. As Thomas Jefferson said in 1787: “Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”

What can be done about the proliferation of fake news?

Great question. Rely on trusted news sources, double check sources, find source material to verify information and read as many publications as possible. There’s an old saying in journalism: “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” So if someone shares a “story” with you on Facebook or Twitter or whatever, check it out before you share it with someone else.

What advice would you have for today’s high school students?

Community college is a great place to start. Most students have no idea what they want to do with their lives when they’re graduating high school, and places like Suffolk can provide them with a place for experimentation and the space to take chances. And you can take those chances without racking up big tuition bills and burdensome loans. I really don’t know where I would be today if I hadn’t gone to Suffolk.

Newsday – Manufacturers: $2.9M grant should produce more qualified workers

Updated January 17, 2017 6:00 AM
By James T. Madore  james.madore@newsday.com

Long Island manufacturers are hopeful that a $2.9 million federal grant will help produce more qualified job applicants for hard-to-fill positions. The grant, won by Suffolk County Community College, will go toward new training programs and internships at local plants over four years. Nov. 3, 2016 Photo Credit: Chuck Fadely

Local manufacturers are hopeful that a $2.9 million federal grant will help produce more qualified job applicants for hard-to-fill positions, such as machinist, tool and die maker, welder and quality assurance specialist.

Officials said the U.S. Department of Labor grant, won by Suffolk County Community College in July, will go toward new training programs and internships at local plants over the next four years.

Troy Tucker, the college’s associate dean for grants development, said some of the funds also will be used to prepare the unemployed and underemployed for jobs in health care information and cybersecurity. Up to 145 students will be readied for manufacturing occupations; 212 will go into either health care or cybersecurity.

Regina Vieweg, chief executive of Check-Mate Industries, a stampings and components manufacturer in West Babylon, said, “We’re excited about this program because we’ve lost a whole generation of tool and die makers. . . . We need them, and this program will help.”

She joined about 60 business executives, educators and economic development officials last week to hear how SCCC intends to use the largest federal grant it’s ever received.

John Lombardo, the college’s associate vice president for workforce and economic development, said he is seeking feedback from manufacturers about the types of skills they are looking for in job applicants.

He also said he is establishing committees to help develop training curricula in tool and die making, quality control, human resources, cost estimating and electronics.

Lombardo, who runs SCCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, said the training is generally free to students. “We provide them with a foundation in manufacturing so that they are ready to learn in the work environment,” he said, adding the center offers certificate programs in a number of factory occupations.

“We can help a displaced worker up their skills at no cost to them or anyone else,” Lombardo said. “Someone can get back into the community with additional skills.”

The center has trained between 300 and 400 people since it started in 2005. The new grant comes from fees paid for H1B visas that allow foreigners to work in the United States, not taxpayer dollars.

Joseph P. Bryant, manufacturing director at Precipart in East Farmingdale, said he’s hired five graduates of the SCCC training center. Precipart makes gears, motion-control equipment and precision components.

“Manufacturing is alive and well on Long Island, and a necessity,” Bryant said. “You can earn a good living as a machinist. . . . The grant will allow us and others to have more interns because the money will be there to pay them.”
