On February 1, the first day of Black History Month, it was more than fitting that three accomplished Nobles graduates of color would share their stories at morning assembly. Co-Deans of Diversity Edgar De Leon ’04 and Erica Pernell introduced Kevin McCarthy ’74, Kasib Sabir ’03 and Lorna Lowe ’90 to tell stories of identity during their time at Nobles.

At 80+ with a BA from Yale in literature, a PFC from USMC's Parris Island, an EdM (6 courses in English literature, 4 in Ed) from Harvard, an MA & PhD in the Arthurian Legend from Brandeis, and the first USA citizen to earn the FILA (International Wrestling’s governing body) Master Coach designation, and the only American to earn this 75 miles east of Moscow in what was then the Soviet Union (USSR), I teach in Senior College for those over 55 only the texts that move me emotionally (many from my classes at Nobles), tutor high school youngsters for free, and I keep learning as well as wrestling with my high school pupils who learn without being injured why the late Dave Schultz dubbed me “Doctor Pain”! Putnam, Bird, Storer, and others CHANGED MY LIFE! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, NOBLES! When you stop learning, you start to die. Ted Reese, 1954
