As his 17+ year run as Director of Alumni Relations comes to a close, Dennis McDermott '74; St. Francis College's fast-talking, always welcoming, and only SFC player to have their basketball jersey retired; welcomed back the Golden Terriers from the Class of 1968 to celebrate their 50 year reunion on May 2, 2018.
President Miguel Martinez-Saenz also addressed the audience, his first Golden Terriers luncheon since becoming President almost a year ago.
Other alumni from the classes of 1953, 1958 and 1963 were also in attendance at the lunch. More than 125 people in all showed their Terrier pride.
Mr. McDermott is retiring June 1, 2018 and wanted to use the opportunity to thank all his fellow alumni for they camaraderie, memories, and most of all, for an end to the requests for SFC gear.
He also thanked Donna DeSiena, who was the Alumni Relations Assistant for 17 years and Vanessa De Almeida '00, who has spent 16 years as Assistant Director of Alumni Relations for doing all the work while he got all the credit.
