On Tuesday, May 16, Monroe College held a gathering for alumni at Montefiore Medical Center on Gun Hill Road. As with many large organizations in the Bronx, Montefiore employs dozens of Monroe College graduates in its administrative, medical, research, and off site divisions. At the event, the college’s Culinary Arts Program served tasty desert crepes to the alums and other Montefiore employees.
A few who stopped by the area outside the Cherkasky auditorium had some glowing things to say about the education they had received at Monroe and the career paths they had been on since.
In fact, Rosita Gonzalez, from the class of 1987, who now works in the hospital’s Adolescent AIDS program, said that not only did she get a quality education in Office Technologies at Monroe, but she stopped smoking as a result of the personal urging of Monroe President Stephen Jerome. Clearly, there’s more to a Monroe College education than what is found only in the classroom!
