Amityville, NY - April 10, 2017 - Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory recently served as the keynote speaker for the St. Joseph’s College Military Graduate Recognition Ceremony at St. Joseph’s Long Island Campus.
“On behalf of the residents of Suffolk County, it was my privilege to take part in celebrating the academic accomplishments of these young men and women who protect our country,” said Presiding Officer Gregory. “Among the many ideals my military service instilled in me was the significance of leadership and integrity. The world needs more leaders for whom integrity is of the utmost importance – and who better to look to than our military graduates?”
The event celebrated the graduation of 50 military-affiliated students from St. Joseph’s Long Island campus. Graduates representing each of the five armed service branches (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy) were in attendance, including active members, veterans, reserves, spouses and dependents.
"St. Joseph's College NY was honored to have Presiding Officer Gregory address our 2017 military-affiliated graduates,” said Erin D'Eletto, Director of the Office of Military & Veteran Services at St. Joseph’s College. “This year the College proudly commends the academic achievements of fifty military and veteran students. Tremendous credit goes to the graduates, as well as a heartfelt thank you to the college and community for the significant contributions made to support the educational empowerment of those that have served and sacrificed."
