Message To Grads As RCC Celebrates 50th Year: Follow Your Dreams

1,100 students graduate; Morahan honored, but could not attend ceremony.

Despite the tough economic times and turbulent political discourse that once again have come to the nation's fore, students at Sunday's Rockland Community College graduation ceremony were told to be upbeat and follow their dreams.

The college honored about 1,100 graduates from last fall and winter and this spring at its Eugene Levy Fieldhouse in Ramapo. The college, celebrating its 50th anniversary, also paid tribute to state Sen. Thomas Morahan, R-New City, with an honorary degree. However, Morahan, 79, who is battling leukemia, did not attend the ceremony.

 "You have the power to move forward as agents of change," said Cliff Wood, the college's president, during the graduation ceremony.

Mark Svensson, who was the student speaker, said his fellow graduates embody hard work and dedication. They also showed a great deal of compassion and a desire to make a difference in the world.

"There will never not be a need for people who care for others," he said.

 Tarik Abdelqader of New City, president of the Student Government Association, said while the graduates had diverse cultural backgrounds, ages and goals, they all have arrived at this day and will succeed in the future.

 U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., urged the graduates to pursue their goals and not be easily dissuaded.

"This is the time to figure out your dream, reach inside yourself and see if you can achieve it," he said.

 The alumni speaker, screenwriter and comdian Regina DeCicco, told the students to face their fears, try something new and not to be afraid to fail. DeCicco graduated from RCC in 1998 and recently wrote and directed her first award-winning short film, "The Cyclist."

 "Sometimes strength comes from unexpected places," she said. "The higher you reach, I'll assure you, the closer you'll get (to your dreams)."

More than 1,300 attended the graduation. The proud parents, family and friends cheered, waved and beamed at the graduates as they marched into the fieldhouse and throughout the ceremony.

 While most of the day focuse on the students, one faculty member was singled out for his dedication and service to the college.

 Joseph Famellette, a professor of physical education, has been at RCC since almost the very beginning. He celebrated his 50th, and final, year this year and was given a plaque, a copy of which will be put in the fitness center, which the college is naming after him.

  "What an honor and privilege it's been to be a member of this wonderful faculty and teach these students," he said.

Upon bestowing him the plaque, the college's executive vice president, Morton Meyers, said: "He is one of the most beloved faculty at RCC. It is his dedication to his job, RCC and his students that we are honoring him today."

Two non-faculty also were honored with the college's first honorary degrees: Morahan and businessman Herbert Kurz of Piermont, longtime leader of Presidential Life insurance company in Nyack.

 "As we complete our 50th year, it's only appropriate we recognize Senator Morahan," said Richard Kohlhausen, vice-chairman of the college's board of trustees.

He said Morahan always supported the school and "he's done the right thing at the right time for all of us." That included helping secure $1.3 million for the Hudson Valley Education Consortium, the second largest grant in the college's history, and state money to build the school's center for children and families.

Two of his Morahan's daughters accepted the degree on his behalf. Ron Levine, a spokesman for Morahan, said when the honor was announced that Morahan was thrilled by it.

"This has been very uplifting for him," Levine said. The senator genuinely was touched and humbled."

Kurz, 90, of Piermont, said he has always been committed to education at all levels. He helped raise about $230,000 for student tutoring and support programs and gave stock valued at $400,000 to the RCC Foundation for student services.

Also honored at graduation Sunday was Peter Arvanites of New City, a RCC math professor who is former president of the RCC Faculty Senate. He received the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Faculty Service.
