Keller Named VP At Queens College

William Keller of Port Washington has been appointed Vice President for Finance and Administration at Queens College, in Flushing, NY, effective July 15. Keller will manage the Budget Office, Buildings & Grounds, Campus Facilities, the Office of Converging Technologies (OCT), and Security.

Since 2005, Keller has held the same position at Kingsborough Community College. Keller holds a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, an M.A. in education from SUNY Albany, and an M.B.A. from New York University’s Stern School of Business. At the outset of his career, he taught social studies in metropolitan New York public schools. Keller has held positions at Deloitte & Touche, Lehman Brothers, and the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation, and is a former Deputy Commissioner for the city’s Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications. He began his career at Kingsborough after five years with Connecticut-based Gartner Inc., a technology research and advisory firm.

“I am honored to be joining Queens College as its Vice President for Finance and Administration,” said Keller. “I have immense respect for the countless accomplishments of faculty, students, and staff. I look forward to becoming part of the Queens community and to contributing all that I can to this remarkable institution.”

Gould A. ‘Stretch’ Ryder III, accomplished sailor, pilot, businessman, civic leader, and steward of the beautiful waterfront of Port Washington, passed away Oct. 24 at The Amsterdam at Harborside Hospice Center in Port Washington.

Stretch, as he was known to all, was well known as part of the crew on Ted Turner’s “Courageous” when it won the America’s Cup in 1977. Turner stayed in touch and visited Stretch last week.

Stretch’s life was marked by numerous personal contributions and accomplishments.

Parents concerned about classroom sizes spoke up at the Port Washington Board of Education meeting, as the board passed an approval of the larger sizes.

Parents spoke of class sizes at the district’s elementary being in the mid 20s, an amount they felt compromised the quality of their children’s education.

“The board of education changed our children’s education for the worse,” said one mother of larger average class sizes the board had approved last year. The comment drew clapping from the audience.


Sports

The Port Washington Soccer Club has presented Schreiber High School graduate and captain of the Port Washington Blue Knights, Cameron Boroumand, with the annual $1,000 Joe Cohen Scholarship.

The award, which has been presented annually for over 10 years, was established by the Port Washington Soccer Club to honor Joseph Cohen, a gifted athlete who attended college on a soccer scholarship. He went on to achieve outstanding success, first academically, and then in his professional life.  He gave his time fully and with great heart to innumerable charitable endeavors.

The tough and talented Port Washington volleyball team defeated Hicksville at an away game this past Friday in all three sets.

With strong returning players who also play on club teams year round, the Port Washington team plays with a certain level of chemistry. Megan Murphy and Kelly Nardone led the way with 12 assists and Mia Walker had six kills.
