2013-2014 Convocation
September

Led by the Executive Director, Brad Zervas, and the Vice Chair of the Board, Sister Mary Lanning, BHGHNY gathered on Sunday September 8 to ring in the 2013-2014 academic year, welcome new scholars into the family, and encourage all program participants to uphold BHGHNY’s expectations and further the organization’s mission. During the Convocation, the community celebrated and praised the achievements of six of its scholars who took part in the Insurance Federation of New York Internship Program sponsored by YES!Solutions. These 2013 IFNY Interns spent 8 weeks this Summer learning and role-playing inside the headquarters and branch office operations of major insurance, reinsurance, and financial services companies and law firms in NYC's financial services sector.  They travelled and learned as a team, accompanied by Mary Lanning as on-site mentor and guide to a unique Introduction to Insurance-Investment-Finance Careers 101.  All  were presented with certificates marking their accomplishment as well as a $30,000 scholarship, generously donated by IFNY and YES!Solutions. The Convocation ended with dinner where the BHGHNY community shared its first meal of the new school year together
