Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

The Office of Graduate School & Fellowship Advisement and the President’s Office would like to invite all members of the Jasper community to attend our annual Public Service Forum on Nov. 4, which will be hosted on Google Meet. The annual forum seeks to invigorate student interest in public service — a sector that urgently needs young, passionate pioneers and volunteers to lead the charge. This year’s panel will feature two speakers who have been and continue to be heavily involved in public service at high levels.

Gregg Bishop, a returning guest, is the current Interim Executive Director of Coro New York, which is New York City’s premier civic leadership training organization. Bishop has also served as the Commissioner of the NYC Department of Small Business Services.

Adrienne Trinka is the Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency that has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877.

The panel will be moderated by our very own Rob Walsh from the President’s Office. Gregg Bishop and Adrienne Trinka will be speaking about their experiences in public service and the importance of the younger generation stepping in to make changes happen.

If you’re interested in going into public service after graduation or even to get started while you’re still at Manhattan College, join us at the forum to hear from the best in the industry!

You, too, can make a difference in the world.

The Google Meet link for the event will be: http://meet.google. com/ygt-kyyu-wbx

Hope to see you there!
