This morning was waking up at 4am – catching a flight to JFK in NYC and then driving to Molloy College for a 9:30am presentation. Afterward, I drove to Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY.
Molloy College is always special because they are one of the first schools we worked with. Bob brought me in from the start and seeing him each year is like seeing an old friend. A big hug starts our day. Bob is a retired NYC police officer who has been at Molloy for several years now. You can see the impact he has when students walk by and talk to him.
The last few years, Steve has been in charge of bringing me in and he does a really nice job organizing the day and morning. Kudos goes to Steve and Bob for the wonderful food collection they did the days before I got there – to give back to their community. The results were amazing.
This year was their largest incoming class ever and so the gym was packed!! 9:30am for incoming college students can be rough. Not this group. They were responsive and shared openly. Thanks everyone. Now off to Vassar College.
