4/23/17 – Selden, NY: Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Out Of the Darkness Walk

Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

Sunday, April 23, 2017 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

FROM:           Dr. Thomas S. Tyson. College Associate Dean for Mental Health Services

Subject:          Out of the Darkness Campus Walk

I am pleased to share with you that the College will be hosting an Out of the Darkness Campus Walk on Sunday, April 23rd from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on the Ammerman Campus in Selden.  This event, which seeks to increase awareness about suicide and raise funds to fight it, will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Join a quarter of a million people from hundreds of cities across all 50 states to raise awareness and funds that will save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. This will be the first Out of the Darkness walk to take place at a college on Long Island.  We thank Ammerman Campus student, Anne Deubel, for proposing this event idea.  Anne, working  closely with Sarah Boles, Faculty Coordinator for Mental Health Services, has been able to initiate the planning necessary to introduce a local Long Island walk on a Suffolk campus.

When someone participates in the Out of the Darkness Campus Walk, they join the effort with thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss.  We are looking for supporters in the college community who understand the growing concern about suicidal behavior and are willing to do something to bolster efforts to prevent suicide.

For more information, please go online and visit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) or their Out of the Darkness Walks-New York sites. To provide you with more information, there will be a meeting on Wednesday, April 5th, in the Southampton Building, Room 230 on the Ammerman Campus.  Anyone who would like to join the committee or participate in the event is invited to attend.

Thank you in advance for considering providing support to this important initiative.

An RTE Radio interview marking Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2012 is the catalyst for a remarkable journey. Holocaust survivor Tomi discovers one of his former jailers – Hilde Lisiewicz is alive and living in Hamburg. Lisiewicz is a convicted War Criminal. She claims she is a victim of victor’s justice. Tomi embarks on a quest to investigate the SS woman’s claims of innocence.

Unexpectedly Tomi’s odyssey ends where his story began, back in his native Merasice, meeting the ghosts from the past and embracing a German woman directly associated with the man who had a role in the liquidation of Tomi’s family.

West Babylon’s Tara Hack Hosts New Suffolk County Community College’s Student Focused News Production

West Babylon’s Tara Hack, 27, is the new host of a college based, student-focused news program airing on Suffolk County Community College’s social media channels, web site and student portal, and soon on television screens throughout the college’s three campuses.

“Suffolk Hacked”  was launched earlier this month with a student focus, combined with information about athletics, campus clubs and departments students should know about. The program has taken the campus by storm.

Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay and the College’s Board of Trustees recently recognized Hack at a Board of Trustees meeting where an episode of her show was shown.

“I am grateful for this tremendous opportunity that would not have been possible without the support of my fellow students and the faculty, staff and administration at Suffolk County Community College,” Hack said.

“Tara has broken new ground with her innovative approach,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “We look forward to seeing more from Tara and having it seen far and wide.”

Hack plans to use her experience as the host of “Suffolk Hacked”  to hone her writing and on-camera technique for a demonstration reel for a future career in broadcast television.

Hack, a Radio and Television Production major,  is no stranger to performing and has been writing and performing her own music since she was a child – even teaching herself how to play guitar at just 14 years-old by watching instructional videos on YouTube.

Hack plays her original music three days per week with MUNY, the Musicians Under New York program underwritten by the MTA, in Penn Station and Brooklyn’s Atlantic Terminal.

When she was 18, Tara co-wrote a song entitled “Saya Tidak Bersalah” (I’m Not Guilty) about an Australian woman, Schapelle Corby, who was jailed in Indonesia. The song quickly gained international airplay and was featured in The Sydney Morning Herald and Brisbane Times.

Here at home the song was played on college radio stations, including at the University of Rhode Island and University of Colorado at Boulder where Tara was asked to play at the Conference of World Affairs. Tara continued her humanitarian efforts by penning another song, “She Falls Down, ” to raise awareness about domestic violence. The song was used as the background in a Chicago public service announcement.

Bernstein Elected One of Five International Officers of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Suffolk County Community College student Amie Bernstein has been selected as one of five students to serve as an international officer of the prestigious Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society.

Each year five students are elected to serve as international officers during the society’s annual convention and serve one-year terms. Holding international office is considered the pinnacle of leadership within Phi Theta Kappa.  The international vice presidents maintain regular correspondence with chapters in their respective divisions, represent the society at regional meetings and educational conferences, and preside at the society’s annual convention and honors institute.

“Phi Theta Kappa has changed my life in ways I never expected,” Bernstein said and added, “being elected to serve as an international officer creates an opportunity for me to help inspire other students and give back to those that have helped lead me to this position of honor.  This achievement was a group effort including both faculty as well as fellow students, and is a testament to Suffolk County Community College’s ability and passion for developing service leaders.  Without Suffolk County Community College and its opportunities, I would not be where I am today.”

“This is an extraordinary achievement for Amie,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay, “and I am certain her success will continue as she serves her fellow students, our college and community.”

Phi Theta Kappa is based in Jackson, Miss. and has more than 2.5 million members and 1,250 international chapters. The organization promotes scholarship and leadership among two-year college students.

Spreading Good Cheer! In The Cards For Suffolk County Community College Student

 Evan Feliciano

Spreading good cheer during the holiday season has taken on new meaning for Suffolk County Community College student Evan Feliciano, 21, of Hauppauge, who created a unique way to pass forward the good tidings of the season all year round.

“I think it’s important to spread kindness and get a chain reaction going,” said Feliciano, who attends classes on the college’s Michael J. Grant Campus in Brentwood.

Feliciano created S.H.A.R.K! cards to help his mini on-campus movement that he hopes to spread to Suffolk’s two other campuses. The card’s name, a take-off on the College’s athletics teams’ name – is an acronym for “Students Here Are Really Kind” — and Feliciano and a team of helpers pass the cards out whenever they see students or campus visitors being nice to one another. Feliciano and his friends, in turn, encourage the card recipients to likewise pass the card along if the holder witnesses a good deed.

“So far, it has been received very well,” Feliciano said. “I hope I can spread it to our other campuses.”
