Scott Erath’s  Amityville Company Wm. Erath & Son, Inc. has helped build students’ futures for nearly a decade by supporting the construction technology program at Suffolk County Community College with student internships, jobs and hardware.

Erath awarded two students — his eighth such award, that now totals more than $30,000 — with laptop computers preloaded with construction industry software at a ceremony on May 3.

Erath said he gives the awards because he loves to give back and often hires students from Suffolk.

Patricia Filbert of Shirley and Jennifer Navarro of Central Islip were awarded the laptops by Erath that are worth nearly $2,000.

“Industry partnership with higher education is a win-win situation,” said Suffolk County Community College Academic Chair of Science and Engineering Pete Maritato.  “Industry partners have a pipeline to employees that are prepared and ready to work on their first day and our educational programs benefit from industry feedback allowing the alignment of courses to industries’ needs and providing ‘real-life’ work experience for students.”

5/1/17 In Our Backyard Series

In Our Backyard

The Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding (CSJHU) recognizes that when incidents occur and issues arise in our surrounding communities, they impact the day to day lives of our Suffolk County Community College students.

Most recently, our college community has been deeply affected by the violent incidents and increase in gang activity within areas surrounding our campuses. In response to these incidents the CSJHU, in collaboration with the College Wide Office of Multicultural Affairs and College Campus Activities, would like to introduce a new and ongoing program entitled, “In Our Backyard”.

In Our Backyard is a forum created to offer a safe and supportive environment for our students to discuss and share their feelings, thoughts and concerns regarding these incidents as well as organized training to develop productive ways to respond through community advocacy and engagement.

The first in the series will take place College wide, on Monday, May 1st during common hour (11am – 12 pm) at the following locations on each campus.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact the CSJHU: (631) 451-4117.

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight

FACTS: 

In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:

Ammerman Campus –

Kathleen Italiano
Suffolk County Community College, North Building- OPIE
533 College Road, Selden, NY 11784

Eastern Campus –

Janine Tortortella
Suffolk County Community College, Peconic Bld Room 216

Win a Weekend with a Sleek Italian Sports Car at the 2017 Suffolk Gala

Maserati

Want to spend a weekend with a sleek Italian sports car? Here’s your chance!

A weekend with a 2017 Maserati is being raffled at the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s Annual Salute to Excellence Gala, on Thursday, May 4.

The Maserati for a weekend is courtesy of Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island who has been a supporter of the Suffolk Community College Foundation’s fundraising efforts for the past four years.

“Ferrari-Maserati of Long Island is a generous and caring organization that provides financial support for the students of Suffolk County Community College,” said Sylvia A. Diaz, Ph.D., LMSW, executive director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation.  “The Maserati Weekend is perhaps the most unique raffle we’ve ever offered and our guests absolutely love the opportunity to win such a prize.  Just imagine the experience of driving around Long Island in a fine Italian sports car!  Where would you go?”

The Salute to Excellence Gala celebrating labor leader, Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO and the college will be held on May 4 at the Hilton Long Island in Huntington.

“We will celebrate and recognize a great labor leader whose advocacy for education and the middle class has helped advanced the most important engine in creating the American Dream and a better life for each generation,” said Suffolk County Community College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay.

“The mission of the Foundation is to reduce the economic barriers to higher education and foster student success.  The Salute to Excellence Gala is the College’s single largest event held annually to generate financial support, community awareness and most importantly make a difference in the lives of our students,” said Executive Director of the Suffolk Community College Foundation Dr. Sylvia A Diaz. The celebration will begin at 7 pm.

Gala sponsorship, tickets and journal advertisements are available now through the Suffolk Community College Foundation website: https://sunysuffolk.thankyou4caring.org/events/salute-to-excellence-gala
