With encouraging words from the President of Fordham University The Reverend Joseph M. McShane, S.J., New Yorks Senior Senator Charles Schumer and others, more than 300 graduates from St. Francis College are now the Colleges next ambassadors to the world after taking part in the Spring 2010 Commencement Ceremony at the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge on Friday, May 14.
For Assad Ishtiaq, his graduation from the five year combined Bachelors and Masters Degree program in Accounting is only the half way point of a deal he brokered with his brother. Assads older brother Ahtesham, who drives a cab in New York City, helped pay Assads tuition at St. Francis. Now as Assad begins working at PricewaterhouseCoopers, he will put his earnings towards Ahteshams tuition. The brothers said the arrangement was really nothing special, just a matter of coming to the United States from Pakistan with limited resources and working together as a family to meet their goals. Assad was also able to earn the Deans Award at the College for his excellent grades.
Other members of the Masters Program will be working at Big Four Accounting firms, including PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young as well as at firms and companies including PKF, OConnor Davies Munns & Dobbins, National Grid and Con Edison.
During the commencement address delivered by Father McShane, he joked about how the reason St. Francis College invited a Jesuit Priest, Yankees fan from The Bronx to speak at the commencement of a Franciscan Institution in a Brooklyn Dodger community was, to show the depth of their ecumenical spirit and their mercy. He went on to tell the graduating class that if they follow the example of St. Francis, who was green before there was a green movement, who was an advocate of peace before there was a peace movement and who is the worlds only true universal saint, and if they follow his Prayer of St. Francis, you will transform the world with your gritty New York generosity, your hard-won, discerning wisdom and your daring, draining compassion.
