Free Seminar for Prospective College Students RSVP By 3/1/18

Info Session 2018Supervisor Romaine Announces Free Seminar for Prospective College Students

posted on

Farmingville, NY – On March 8, the Brookhaven Youth Bureau and Suffolk Community College will host a free seminar for parents and students who are interested in enrolling in college. Representatives from Suffolk Community College will discuss the college application process, financial aid opportunities, scholarship opportunities and the various programs and services the college offers to students. Much of the information provided can be used toward the overall college application process. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Brookhaven Town Hall, located at 1 Independence Hill in Farmingville.

“Suffolk County Community College offers hundreds of diverse programs,” said College President Dr. Shaun L. McKay. “The College, New York State’s largest community college, provides a high-quality education at an affordable price that can lead students toward a four-year institution. The college also offers a host of grant and scholarship programs, easy transfer between SUNY institutions and a host of clubs and athletic opportunities. I urge students to learn more about all that Suffolk has to offer.”

Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “It is great seeing the Youth Bureau and Suffolk Community College continuing to work together to help both students and parents in Brookhaven Town. This seminar will help guide them through the college application process and also make them aware of the many opportunities that are available.”

Councilman Michael Loguercio ’80, who serves as the Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau, said, “The college application process includes many important family decisions, and this program will help educate both parents and children about that decision-making process. I want to thank Suffolk Community College and the Youth Bureau for the great programs and services they provide to Brookhaven’s youth.”

The seminar will last approximately an hour and a half. Each presenter will speak for approximately a half hour, and then take ten to fifteen minutes after their presentations to answer questions.

Participants are asked to register in advance with the Youth Bureau by Thursday, March 1 by calling 631-451-8011.

Join the dialogue… with guest speakers
Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Lewis-Mention and Dr. Arthur Romano professor of conflict resolution and peace education at George Mason University.

Suffolk County Deputy Police Commissioner Risco Mention-Lewis began her legal career as a Nassau County Assistant District Attorney in 1993, prosecuting misdemeanors.  She later became an Assistant District Attorney in County Court where she prosecuted felony cases. When litigating an attempted murder case in 1999 that involved teenagers, Mention-Lewis realized that young people were in dire need of new, comprehensive intervention strategies.
In 2005 she was honored with her promotion to the position of Unit Chief of Rising Star where she focused on gang prevention strategies. In January 2013, Mention-Lewis was appointed by the Suffolk County Executive to the position of County Deputy Police Commissioner, making her not only the first female to hold the position, but also the first person of color. Her work entails creating comprehensive programs to combat gang violence and recidivism through intelligence lead policing, community-oriented policing and assisting to develop Council of Thought and Action groups across the county.

Dr. Arthur Romano, an international peace-educator, consultant, certified nonviolence trainer and a professor of conflict analysis and resolution at George Mason University.  Dr. Romano has implemented innovative educational programs in Africa, South America, Asia, Europe and the US. Those programs have supported thousands of students in learning practical strategies for building healthy communities, becoming global leaders and productively engaging with conflict.  Dr. Romano has spoken numerous times at the United Nations and has collaborated with the Department of Public Information to promote the Gandhi-King Season for Nonviolence and the International Day of Peace.
