Media update for April 16 thru May 1, 2009

    On April 16, Staten Island Advance arts editor Michael Fressola wrote a brief review of the end-of-year exhibition of work by junior art majors.
    On April 18, the Advance ran a minor rewrite of a press release about the upcoming Community Days program, kicking off with the Civic Engagement Awards program.
    On April 20, New York 1 broadcast Bree Driscoll’s story on the annual powderpuff football game, which serves as Wagner Hillel’s major charity fund-raiser.
    On April 23, the Advance ran a standalone photo brief in AWE, its weekly entertainment supplement, promoting a campus jazz concert that coming weekend.
    Also on April 23, the AWE ran a glowing review by theater writer Lisa Ann Williamson of the current Stage One studio theater production of George Bernard Shaw’s “Arms and the Man”.
    On April 24, the Advance ran a preview on their Friday Jewish Life page for our Chai Society’s Mitzvah Awards program.
    On April 26, Advance political writer Tom Wrobleski included Seymour Lachman’s comments in his blog on Albany reform.
    Also on April 26, the Rutland (Vermont) Herald featured a profile on Wagner College senior Jennifer Wright, who has started a foundation to raise money for a new orphanage in Kenya.
    The April 30 Advance AWE had boxed, illustrated reviews of two Wagner programs. The first, by arts editor Michael Fressola, covered the annual Senior Art Show.
    The second April 30 review, by theater writer Lisa Ann Williamson, covered the Main Stage performance of “On the Town,” the final show of the 2008-09 season. For the record, it was the first Wagner review by Ms. Williamson that I’ve seen that did not actually glow.
    In another section of the April 30 Advance, their “East Shore” hyperlocal wrapper, Tevah Platt wrote about a Staten Island history program that Wagner College history professors Lori Weintrob and Rita Reynolds had coordinated at P.S. 57.
    On May 1, the Advance ran a standalone photo of New York City Councilman Kenneth Mitchell announcing the continuation of his support for a Wagner College internship program. Mitchell, a 1987 Wagner graduate, started the internship program in 2006 when he was chief of staff to Councilman Michael McMahon.
