Newburgh, NY -


Michael Del Rosso of Washingtonville, NY (pictured above, left), and Francesco Criscuolo of Middletown, NY, spend a lot of time in the science labs at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY.

The senior students are pursuing their dreams of becoming doctors. At the Mount, 33 percent of freshmen aim for health professions, including nursing, pre-medicine or pre-veterinary.

A top ranked financial professional, Mary Moran Deatherage hired Mount student Nure Useinoski as an intern in her Little Falls, NJ office. The accounting major from Middletown, NY, who will earn an MBA in 2013, was a “terrific asset” to her team at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, said Deatherage.

No matter the situation or emergency, Mount grad Karl Brabenec (pictured above, right) says he has “the best job ever” as Deerpark Town Supervisor. He oversees a town of 8,500 at the rural intersection of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Brabenec’s passion for politics began in his teen years and was fueled by his studies and experiences as a Mount student.
