NYC MAYORAL CANDIDATE MASSEY TOURS LA SALLE ACADEMY
East Village, N.Y., April 4, 2017 – On Tuesday, Mayoral Candidate Paul Massey toured La Salle Academy, one of the oldest all-boys Catholic high schools in Manhattan.
Massey met with students, faculty, and staff of La Salle and spoke with them about everything from the school’s most recent State Championship to some of the students’ favorite extra-curricular activities, including the Cooper Union STEAM partnership and the newly revived band.
“I decided to run for mayor because of students like you,” Massey said, addressing four La Salle students. He explained, “This is the greatest city in the world, and it has been so welcoming to me that I want to ensure everyone else has the ability to receive the same opportunities, the same choice of education, and the same chance for success that I had the good fortune to receive.”
Massey, who announced his run for Mayor in 2016, has focused his policies on developing solutions to some of New York’s most pressing issues, including the opportunity for New Yorkers to choose a quality education aimed toward future success throughout the five boroughs.
Celebrating 169 years of Catholic education in the Lasallian tradition, La Salle Academy is flourishing in the Lower East Side. For more information about La Salle, please contact Ismini Scouras at 212-475-8940, ext. 204, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.lasalleacademy.org.
The mission of La Salle Academy, a rigorous college-preparatory high school, is to educate students of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds with special out-reach to those most in need. We provide a nurturing environment, which fosters spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth in the Roman Catholic tradition and the Lasallian spirit, as embodied in St. John Baptist de La Salle. We create experiences of community within the school and encourage each student to develop their gifts and talents for their own growth, as well as engage in the caring service of others, through its academic, extra-curricular and spiritual programs.
