Dec. 7, 2012
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Tuesday, December 4, the Providence College Athletic Department in conjunction with the Career Education Center and Office of Academic Support held its 4th Student-Athlete Career Night. The event was sponsored by Mark Mandell and Yvette Boisclair '84 whose generosity brought this event to life four years ago.
Alumni and friends representing various professional fields retuned to provide career advice to more than 100 Friar student-athletes from the junior and senior classes. The event kicked off with a video from former field hockey standout, Kerianne Murphy '10 whose experience at Career Night two years ago, lead to her professional career as an Analyst at EMC.
Following the video, Mandell addressed the student-athletes emphasizing that "regardless of how much money you make, you are not truly wealthy until you give back."
Head Men's Basketball Coach Ed Cooley served as the keynote speaker and walked the guests through his career path from a high school coach to the Head Men's Basketball Coach at Providence College. Cooley spoke to the Friars about appreciation and the importance of creating relationships that will open doors for you in the future.
In addition to sponsoring the Student-Athlete Career Night, Mark Mandell and Yvette Boisclair '84 have also established endowed and immediate use scholarships to provide the gift of opportunity and education to Providence College student-athletes.
