For several years now, the College of Staten Island has been host to the annual Relay-for-Life event that is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. In spring 2012, a group of faculty and staff members responded to the Campus email about this year’s event scheduled for May 4, 2012. Carl Haynes, an alumni of CSI and Technical Support College Assistant in the Library was identified by the Chief Librarian to coordinate the team. Sixteen (16) faculty and staff, along with their friends participated in the relay. The walk began at 3pm and ended at 12 midnight.
We are extremely thankful to all our friends who donated funds to help us raised$2,400.00, earning us second place in raising the most dollars. Special thanks to our team members who not only walked but also helped to raise funds. They include library faculty and staff: Ewa Dzurak, Carl Haynes, Catherine Healey, Lisa Holland, Wilma Jones, Mleeka Khan, Rose LaGuerre, Karen Palladino, Olivia Porch, Maria Sinclair, Marsha Turner; and friends of library members: Adeyinka Akinsulure-Smith, Etrel Torne, Finda Gbollie, M. Holland, and Kouame Nguessan.
