NEW LEADERSHIP AT THE HOSTOS CENTER FOR
THE ARTS & CULTURE

 

JOHN MACELWEE APPOINTED AS DIRECTOR;
CHARLES RICE-GONZÁLEZ AND ÁNGEL MORALES TO SERVE AS ASSOCIATE ARTISTIC DIRECTORS

 

Dr. Félix V. Matos Rodríguez, President of Eugenio María de Hostos Community College, has announced the appointment of John MacElwee as the new director of the Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture (HCAC). In this capacity he replaces Wallace I. Edgecombe, who retired last year after 39 years of outstanding service. 

 

MacElwee comes to Hostos from Port Townsend, Washington, where he was Executive Director of Centrum, one of the state's leading cultural institutions. With a budget of $2.4 million, Centrum offers nationally-recognized jazz and traditional music workshops as well as writing conferences, festival performances, creative residency programs, and training in all genres of the cultural arts for middle and high school students.

HOSTOS PRESIDENT FÉLIX MATOS RODRÍGUEZ APPOINTED TO THE BOARDS OF
BOEDC, PHIPPS HOUSES, AND CFR

Hostos Community College President Félix V. Matos Rodríguez has been appointed to the boards of the following three organizations: Council on Foreign Relations (CFR); the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (BOEDC); and the Phipps Houses.

 

CFR is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries. Founded in 1921, CFR takes no institutional positions on matters of policy. It publishes Foreign Affairs, the preeminent journal of international affairs and U.S. foreign policy.

A PROGRAM BUILDS A "BRIDGE" FOR STUDENTS TO PURSUE NURSING AT HOSTOS

(Left to right) Dr. Carlos Molina, Vice President of the Division of Continuing Education & Workforce Development; Isis M. Mejia, student; Irfan Hasan, Program Officer-Health & People with Special Needs of the New York Community Trust; and Darryl E. Rogers, Senior Coordinator for Bridge-to-LPN Program.

      

Ten students, who successfully completed the Division of Continuing Education & Workforce Development's first Bridge-to-LPN program, were honored at a recognition ceremony on October 4, 2013. These students refused to let any obstacles stand in their way as they worked toward earning a degree in nursing.

 

So it was fitting that Hostos student Isis M. Mejia, a bilingual, single mother of two, who received the highest score on the CUNY Assessment Tests (CATS), was selected to be the student speaker at the recognition ceremony. She is also smart enough to know that sometimes you need to cross a few bridges before you get to your ultimate destination.

During the weekend of October 18, twenty Student Ambassadors from Eugenio María de Hostos Community College's Student Leadership Academy participated in two major service activities in the Bronx. 

On October 19, twenty Hostos Ambassadors helped to beautify the Bronx Park Middle School in the Pelham Parkway neighborhood. Students painted murals on doors, added color to classroom tables, and helped to plant flower bulbs in the gardens that surround the school. Their hard worked helped to restore, refresh and reinvigorate an important Bronx institution, and they were thanked for their service by New York State Assemblyman Mark Gjonaj, who represents the Bronx's District 80.

FOR THE FOUR ADVINCOLA BROTHERS, HOSTOS IS A FAMILY AFFAIR 

(Left to right) The Advincola brothers-Carlos Ramón Jr., Esteban, Josúe, and Elias-have helped take the family atmosphere at Hostos Community College to a whole new level.

  

When Esteban Advincola walks through the halls of Eugenio María de Hostos Community College, some people mistake him for his brother Elias...or his brother Josué...or his brother Carlos Ramón Jr.

That's because Esteban is one of four brothers who are currently making Hostos their academic home.

 

And if you think they might get tired of being together, or doing classwork, you don't really know the Advincolas. Their love for Hostos and the opportunities it provides is exceeded only by their love for their family.
