Unbroken: Remembering Super Storm Sandy

Dear College Community,

Ten years ago, Super Storm Sandy made landfall in NYC.  If you were in NYC at that time, you may, like I do, remember the impending onslaught of the storm, the howling wind and angry rains, and the destruction it left in its aftermath. Some of your colleagues were not only in NYC, but they were on campus during the height of the storm. Public Safety Specialist Anthony Ramirez was one such individual. He told me his own story of that time and his idea to document stories of his colleagues and others  who braved the storm to protect our campus. 

I shared this with VP Todmann; and the Division of Communications and Marketing under the direction of Tonya Collins took the idea and ran with it.  What resulted from weeks of interviews was Unbroken: Remembering Superstorm Sandy.    

I invite you  all to join us for a screening of the film and  the occasion to both remember and celebrate our resiliency as a college.
