Grad Breakfast Invocation (6/3/19)

Do you remember four years ago when you entered this gym fearful and trembling? Then someone went to the microphone and said some things, and you can’t remember a thing they said now. They kept doing that all day long. Oh God, you thought “I am never going to succeed here.” But you did – this is the second transition that you have achieved. The first one was when you were in your mother’s womb. It was nice and warm, with plenty of food, and it was a nice cozy place to be. After nine months, however, you were told to get out. Why would you leave?

This morning you close another chapter of your life, and what lies before you are blank pages. So take the pen that you have been given by your teachers, counselors, and friends, and begin to write the next chapter: “Not for school but for life.“ And remember this: the significance of one’s life cannot be measured by the fame or by the material things we have, but by the love and compassion that we show to others every day of our lives. It is all the little things that we do for one another that are the most significant.

So live life to the fullest and don’t waste a minute. Dare to dream, dare to make the world a better place. By God, the world needs you, so go and transform this world. It is not going to be easy. When school gets difficult and relationships go south, remember this: Jesus is always with you, and you can always come back home. We will miss you, we love you, and so until we meet again…. we say “God bless all Stanners!

St. Marcellin Champagnat, pray for us, Good St. Ann, pray for us, Mary our good mother, pray for us.

— Br. Pat Hogan
Alumni Spiritual Director

Without you, the traditions, purpose, values, and outstanding academics and athletics we provide would not exist. We are truly thankful for your commitment to our mission.

On February 16th, we introduced an updated version of The Beehive. The new Beehive features a different color palette, updated graphics, and is designed to match our new website while making each section more easily identifiable. When we introduced the new version, there were some web browser issues, so depending on what browser you use to surf the net (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.), you may have seen a few things look a bit squished or stretched. We are happy to report that these bugs have been fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused. Once again, thank you for reading The Beehive! Submit your content to

Cayla Kumar ‘20 to Compete for Miss New York Outstanding Teen

Cayla Kumar ’20, a bright and ambitious Molloy sophomore, is making a positive impact in our Queens community and beyond. The Queens Village native was recently featured in an article published by TimesLedger which announced her participation in the Miss New York Outstanding Teen competition on April 7th. Miss America’s Outstanding Teen is a scholarship-based program in conjunction with the Miss America Organization. Cayla brings impressive credentials to the competition, most notably a reported 4,100 hours of volunteer service. This includes having raised $25,000 in cancer research for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital as a youth ambassador in 2012. Cayla is involved in many other volunteer efforts, which you can read more about in the article (link below). In addition, New York State Senator Leroy Comrie is expected to acknowledge Cayla’s accomplishments in a written Resolution to support her leading up to and during the competition.

Cayla also shared some comments for this week’s Beehive. “I just want to continue making a difference and working hard. I like giving back,” she explained. Winning the competition would also net her college scholarship money to a yet-to-be-determined sponsoring university. “Judges will be looking for someone well-spoken, relatable, and a good representative of the Miss America organization. I’ve always wanted to be a part of that and I’ve been working really hard.” Cayla also says she is excited and confident, but has been humbled by the challenge ahead. | READ TIMESLEDGER’S STORY ON CAYLA KUMAR

Laura Darcy ’05 is Making a Difference in Louisiana

Laura Darcy ’05 is an Assistant Professor at Nicholls State University in Louisiana where she teaches grad level psychology and education courses. She holds a BA in Human Development from Boston College, and an MA and Ph.D. in Applied Behavior Analysis from Teachers College, Columbia University. After college, Laura spent seven years teaching pre-school through 2nd grade, as both a special and general education teacher. She pursued her grad degree in ABA in order to become a better teacher, and to “provide the right kind of support for students with learning and behavior challenges.” Laura now uses her skills as a behavior analyst to support kids with special needs through teacher training, program development, and clinical supervision.

As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Laura can provide behavior services to any clients. As mentioned, many of her clients are children with developmental disabilities or learning disorders. Most of her work as a BCBA has focused on language development and social skills training, while her graduate work involved preparing students with special needs for full-time inclusion in general education settings. Now, as a clinical supervisor, she not only teaches at Nicholls, but consults for various schools and clinics throughout Louisiana, overseeing client treatment and staff training. Laura is in the process of setting up a clinic at Nicholls, where services would be provided for children with Autism. The clinic would also serve as a training site for grad students to become licensed behavior analysts.

Laura continues to learn something new in her line of work every day, but the most important lesson so far has been how much she values the idea that “the student is always right.” In her words, “if my student or client isn’t being successful, that means I must change something in my behavior in order to help them succeed. I think this concept is applicable to so many aspects of life.” Laura says she has also gained a greater appreciation for her own education experiences. “We Stanners are truly privileged in our experience at Molloy.” Thank you for sharing your story, Laura!
