David Gallagher, associate professor of Education, and three current Mount students recently presented on an alumni panel at Newburgh Free Academy in Newburgh, NY. 

Recently, three current Mount students held an alumni panel on the college application process at Newburgh Free Academy (NFA) in Newburgh, NY. Elycia Martinez ’19, Sarah Williams ’20, and Francisco Mojica ’20, along with education professor David Gallagher, talked to the students about their personal journeys to college and encouraged the scholars to make the most of their high school experiences. The three students, who are all alumni of NFA as well as current students at the Mount, were able to relate some of their own high school experiences while applying for college as well as provide tips and tricks on the application process and how their attitude towards their studies impacted their college prospects.
