SPOTLIGHT ALUM From Canada to stateside, this alum finds

A HOME

IN NEW YORK CITY

Carrie Orr ’08 MSED “I dream of becoming a better teacher. I want to get involved in organizing students to volunteer in community projects.”

When the curtain closed on the 2008 commencement at Medaille, Carrie Orr ’08 MSED and three of her fellow classmates printed their resumes, placed some calls and headed to the Big Apple. Without any job offers in Ontario, they decided to pursue teaching careers in NYC. “We decided to start cold-calling schools and faxing over our resumes,” says Orr. With only one set of interviews at a single school in East Harlem, the girls flew to NYC. “We were giving ourselves three days to land a job or return home. On our last day, all four of us were offered a job at PS108,” explains Orr, who became interested in teaching in the city when Dr. Illana Lane, Acting Dean of the School of Education, spoke about her teaching experiences there. This September marks Orr’s second year with PS108. She’s a teacher in a big city with big goals. “I dream of becoming a better teacher,” says Orr. “I want to get involved in organizing students to volunteer in community projects. I think it’s important for children to take ownership of their community at a young age and begin making positive contributions,” she adds. Orr was inspired by Claudia Conway, Program Director for the Masters of Science in Education for Literacy at Medaille. “She [Claudia] is the kind of teacher that you never want to let down. She is luminescent, beaming with her love of books and excitement for teaching and learning,” explains Orr, “She was incredibly busy with all of her responsibilities, yet she chose to take on another, helping Bilal Quershi ’08 MSED and I get started with the Education Graduate Student Society (E.G.S.S.),” she says. E.G.S.S. is a program that helps facilitate student engagement with the education programs and with the teaching profession. In her spare time, Orr can be found in Bryant Park, her favorite NYC attraction. “In the summer there are fashion shows, film festivals, fairs, classes and plays,” says Orr, who adds that in the winter there is an ice skating rink, holiday shopping, and tree lighting ceremony. “I also love the Rockefeller Center, museums, and Broadway. Going to the theater is my absolute favorite luxury in a city that has it all,” adds Orr.

SCHOLARSHIP

Though storm clouds threatened, the 4th Annual Alumni Open was a dry and enjoyable success. The money raised went to support the Allen Lee Downing Memorial Scholarship fund, which supports two Medaille students each year. Scholarship recipients Emily Herr and Laurie Wachowiak joined the Downing family in celebration of Allen’s legacy.

POWER PLAY

After 18 years in the television news industry, Mark Buckley ’84 MC made a career change – a major career change. He turned in his video camera and microphone for a hard hat and tool box when he started Power Play Electrical Contractors, LLC. Buckley attended a trade school to be an electrician when he was in high school. While he enjoyed the work, the plan was to attend Medaille for Media Communications. Here, his career in broadcasting took off. “I got involved in the radio station and started on my internships as soon as I could,” says Buckley, who started as an intern at WEBR Radio and Channel 2 News. Prior to graduation, Buckley was hired as a news writer and associate producer at Channel 2 where he worked his way up. But after 18 years, Buckley packed his bags. “I could see the television news business was changing, and I didn’t like the direction in which it was headed. I started to think about a career move,” says Buckley. “Two things I knew for sure: I wanted to run my own business, and I really liked doing electrical work back in high school. [So], I hooked up with a local electrical contractor who needed help and I went back to school to update my electrical skills,” he continues, now, a licensed Master Electrician. Power Play Electric started with the goal of focusing on customer service and residential work. “Everyone has horror stories about contractors who don’t show up, do shoddy work, and leave a mess. We [Power Play Electrical Contractors] focus on doing quality work the right way. We show up on time, you get the price up front and we promise that you will be happy with the results,” explains Buckley. A total career change at the age of 39 isn’t always easy. “For someone considering a career change, I would suggest they think through all of the variables carefully. I work harder now running my own business than I did working elsewhere,” offers Buckley. “I don’t think I could have started my own business without working at Channel 2 all those years. That place taught me a lot (good and bad) about management, marketing, organization, branding and time management. Of course, it was Medaille that got me there in the first place,” adds Buckley.

A HOME

IN NEW YORK CITY

Carrie Orr ’08 MSED “I dream of becoming a better teacher. I want to get involved in organizing students to volunteer in community projects.”

When the curtain closed on the 2008 commencement at Medaille, Carrie Orr ’08 MSED and three of her fellow classmates printed their resumes, placed some calls and headed to the Big Apple. Without any job offers in Ontario, they decided to pursue teaching careers in NYC. “We decided to start cold-calling schools and faxing over our resumes,” says Orr. With only one set of interviews at a single school in East Harlem, the girls flew to NYC. “We were giving ourselves three days to land a job or return home. On our last day, all four of us were offered a job at PS108,” explains Orr, who became interested in teaching in the city when Dr. Illana Lane, Acting Dean of the School of Education, spoke about her teaching experiences there. This September marks Orr’s second year with PS108. She’s a teacher in a big city with big goals. “I dream of becoming a better teacher,” says Orr. “I want to get involved in organizing students to volunteer in community projects. I think it’s important for children to take ownership of their community at a young age and begin making positive contributions,” she adds. Orr was inspired by Claudia Conway, Program Director for the Masters of Science in Education for Literacy at Medaille. “She [Claudia] is the kind of teacher that you never want to let down. She is luminescent, beaming with her love of books and excitement for teaching and learning,” explains Orr, “She was incredibly busy with all of her responsibilities, yet she chose to take on another, helping Bilal Quershi ’08 MSED and I get started with the Education Graduate Student Society (E.G.S.S.),” she says. E.G.S.S. is a program that helps facilitate student engagement with the education programs and with the teaching profession. In her spare time, Orr can be found in Bryant Park, her favorite NYC attraction. “In the summer there are fashion shows, film festivals, fairs, classes and plays,” says Orr, who adds that in the winter there is an ice skating rink, holiday shopping, and tree lighting ceremony. “I also love the Rockefeller Center, museums, and Broadway. Going to the theater is my absolute favorite luxury in a city that has it all,” adds Orr.

SCHOLARSHIP

Though storm clouds threatened, the 4th Annual Alumni Open was a dry and enjoyable success. The money raised went to support the Allen Lee Downing Memorial Scholarship fund, which supports two Medaille students each year.
