The Tech Alumni Chapter held its first reception on the first official day of autumn--Wednesday, September 21, 2016 on the 14th floor rooftop terrace at the company headquarters of BCM One at 5th Avenue and 43rd Street. Prep is extremely grateful to Frank Wassenbergh ‘95 (VP of Sales at BCM One) and his company for granting us use of the space. We are also indebted to Jane Scandurra ’77, our Tech Alumni Chapter leader for all the work that she did in planning and executing the event! (Thank you Jane Scandurra!)
More than 50 alumni representing a wide spectrum of graduating class years and industries enjoyed views of the beautiful Manhattan skyline--the terrace afforded a view of both the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building! In addition to enjoying “networking with a view”, there was a moderated Q&A session about the “Internet of Things” (IoT) – which is connecting cars, homes, wearables, and everyday objects to the Cloud – and has the potential to radically change the way we live and work. Jane Scandurra ’77 moderated the Q&A featuring T.J. Costello, the Director of “The Internet of Things” at Cisco Systems. (Cisco Systems, Inc. designs, manufactures and sells networking equipment worldwide and is the largest networking company in the world.)
Several members of the Prep’s faculty and staff were present including Ed Woods ’73 (IT Director), Joe Sciame ’78 (Chair of Business Department), Brother Robert Kent, OSF (Alumni Director), Bob Angeletti (Director of Development) and Prep’s President, Brother Leonard Conway, OSF. Brother Leonard spoke about all of the wonderful developments at the Prep including the ongoing total renovation of the Music Department’s performance and instructional space as well as the Middle States "Programs of Distinction" recognition which was earned by two of the Prep’s departments--the Counseling Program and the Visual Arts Program.
