Math Professor Honored for Fifty Years of Service, Longest in College History


When Grace Mullaney joined the Math and Science Department in 1962, The College of New Rochelle hadn't yet added the School of Nursing, the School of New Resources, or the Graduate School. At the time, the College was excited to open a new dorm, St. Ursula Hall, which featured two telephones on each floor for student use.

The College Community took the opportunity to honor employees who had reached important anniversaries on September 27, 2012 during the annual Opening Meeting. None could match Grace's devoted years of service, however. Grace holds the distinction of being number one on the seniority list at the College, and she is also the longest-serving employee in the 108-year history of The College of New Rochelle.

In honoring her, President Judith Huntington said, "For fifty years Grace Mullaney has been a fine citizen of our Community.  She epitomizes those qualities we admire so well – a respect and concern for individuals and a belief in the value of a liberal arts education as a powerful tool for personal growth and service to others.  We take our mission very seriously and Grace is a prime example of Ursuline education at its best.  We are very proud of her."
