Stanner Talks feat. Mike Baxter ’02 – Video Now Available!

Earlier this spring, the Stanner Alumni Center was thrilled to welcome Mike Baxter ’02 as a guest speaker for our second Stanner Talks event. This series of virtual events gives the Molloy community an opportunity to hear alumni share their insights into intriguing careers. Mike has had quite an intriguing career in sports thus far, from winning the City Championship at Shea Stadium as a member of Molloy’s varsity baseball team in 2002, to recording two walk-off hits and making a no-hitter-saving catch for his hometown New York Mets, to winning an NCAA Championship as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator with the Vanderbilt Commodores. Mike discussed all this and more during “Stanner Talks” back in April.

Missed the event? A recording of Mike Baxter’s Stanner Talks is now available on Youtube! We are pleased to bring this virtual experience to those in our community who may have missed the live event. If you’re a baseball fan, a Mets fan, a fan of Whitestone’s Cherry Valley, or an aspiring player seeking advice, you don’t want to miss this unique opportunity to hear straight from Mike. Use the player below to watch any time. (Pictured: Mike Baxter ’02 fields questions from event MC & former Molloy teammate, Matt Rizzotti ’04)

1st Year of Quantum Computing Closes w/ “Giants” Panel

by Ms. Edit Boral, Computer Science Department

On Sunday, May 9th, Molloy Quantum Computing students participated in a panel discussion with top quantum computing researchers and faculty, as well as leaders from QxQ’s (Qubit By Qubit) Advisory Board. The discussion was the finale of the “Qubit by Qubit: Quantum Computing” course offered for the first time to students all over the world.

Often referred to as the Giants of Quantum Computing, William Oliver, Director of MIT’s Center for Quantum Engineering, Scott Aaronson, Director of UT Austin’s Quantum Information Center and Spiros Michalakis, Physicist at CalTech’s Institute of Quantum Information and Matter, shared their experiences with students. The Giants talked about how they got into Quantum Computing, what a day in their life looks like, as well as about the difficulties and future of quantum computing. 

Molloy students are among the first high schoolers in the world who took “Qubit by Qubit: Quantum Computing” taught by MIT and Oxford researchers. Students who graduated from the course earned a certificate issued by The Coding School. Molloy is thrilled to be offering this course again next school year at no cost to students as our partnership with the QxQ program has been extended. Moreover, Professor James Freericks of Georgetown University has invited Molloy students to register for his upcoming edX course, “Quantum Mechanics for Everyone”, which will start in the last week of June 2021.


 

Incoming Students Take Placement Exams

On May 8th, over 200 incoming students took at least one of two placement exams offered, including mathematics and world language. The Molloy administration wishes to thank all teachers, department chairs, security, and the facilities staff for their great work in providing a safe environment and efficient exam day for our incoming students.

After 25 years as a nursing home administrator, Louis Maltaghati ’69 has returned to the real estate industry as a referral agent with Coldwell Banker. Louis is based in Sarasota, Florida, and invites Stanners in the area to connect. If you would like to reach out to Louis, please contact The Beehive at alumni@molloyhs.org. Louis also shared that he is proud of his son, who is attending Boston University and is majoring in electrical and mechanical engineering.


Bob Corrigan ’63 recently shared some intriguing family history with The Beehive. Bob’s granddaughter, Catherine Daly ’21 (pictured), will graduate from Molloy next month. Catherine is a member of the National Honor Society, the Band and Chorus, the stage crew for the Stanner Players, and has served as a Peer Tutor and a volunteer at the Briarwood Shelter. She will attend Seton Hall in the fall.

Catherine is the sixth member of her family to graduate from St. Ann’s/Molloy. As a member of the Class of 2021, Catherine is graduating exactly 100 years after the first member of her family, as her great-granduncle William “Bill” Christie (pictured far right first row), graduated with the St. Ann’s Academy Class of 1921 (pictured). Bob was next in the family chain, graduating in 1963, and his brother Michael followed in 1964. Michael’s son, Terence Corrigan, graduated in 1991, followed by Bob’s grandson, Sean Daly in 2015, and now Catherine in 2021, completing the family’s Stanner Century.

Bob also noted that Thomas J. O’Brien ’21 is pictured with Bill Christie. O’Brien later became Monsignor O’Brien, the pastor of St. Malachy’s Church (the Actor’s Chapel) on West 49th Street. Msgr. O’Brien was among the inaugural Stanner Hall of Fame inductees in the 1980s.


Joe Savino ’86 recently connected with Justina Dinko ’10 at the Spring NYPD Mounted Unit Cigar Night. Justina is currently assigned to the Mounted Unit that Joe retired from back in 2019. “Justina wasn’t even born yet when I graduated from Molloy in 1986, or when I got appointed to the NYPD in 1989, but here we are, both Stanner alumni and NYPD mounties!”
