La Salle Academy’s November Recap

Happy Thanksgiving! We at La Salle Academy are grateful for you and for all the enriching events and visits we had at our school this month. Take a scroll down and look!

La Salle Academy’s Alumni Association hosted a Professional Networking Night. Alumni spanning several decades joined together for a few rounds of speed networking followed by a panel discussion from a handful of recruiting and HR professionals, including alumnus Dermott Whalen ’72.

Friend of La Salle, Damien Dwin, invited 15 of his peers from Wall Street to our school to participate in the second Fireside Chat program for our students. Small group breakout sessions encouraged discussion of key topics aimed at providing career mentorship and pathways to success.

La Salle Works provided students with two wonderful opportunities this month. One was a visit from a Men’s Wearhouse representative (left) to discuss tips for a successful interview and dressing for success. The other was a visit to 1010 WINS Radio (right) to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the popular news station.

Some individuals associated with La Salle Academy visited Manhattan College on November 8th for the District of Eastern North America’s Association Celebration! Lasallians from all over DENA participated in this special occasion, which featured a live- streamed video presentation by Superior General Brother Robert Schieler, FSC.

Our students had the much-appreciated opportunity to see Hamilton on Broadway this month thanks to the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s Hamilton Education Program. La Salle Academy’s history department integrated lessons about Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Era into their classroom studies as a precursor to the students’ visit to midtown.

New York University Clinical Associate Professor Fidelino Lim and his nursing students guest lectured about dental and oral health in a science class. This is just one of many planned visits from NYU’s Rory Meyers College of Nursing. Future topics of discussion will include nutrition, diabetes, blood pressure and obesity.
