Adelphi University Awards Scholarships to Local Volunteer Emergency Services Members

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. —University College at Adelphi University is proud to announce its first two recipients of the $2500 Volunteer Emergency Services Scholarship: Charles William Schwalbe and Michael A. Moccaldi II. These two awards are given to members of the New York State volunteer emergency services community who have demonstrated dedication to the profession and to their community. Charles William Schwalbe is a paramedic and chief of the Commack Volunteer Ambulance Corps. Michael A. Moccaldi II is a paramedic and lieutenant of the Islip Fire Department rescue squad.

This annual award is open to any New York State emergency services volunteer and is awarded based on the need of those who qualify. Applicants are required to submit an application, two letters of recommendation and an essay describing how a college degree will help them better serve their community. This is a time when volunteers are few and the dangers are great; thus, University College decided to reward current emergency services volunteers by creating the Volunteer Emergency Services Scholarship. In doing this, it also hopes to encourage more people to volunteer.

University College at Adelphi University is home to the newly re-designed undergraduate program of study in Emergency Services Administration. The goal of the degree is to provide members of the public safety community with the tools needed to become effective leaders in their field through a comprehensive program that combines traditional emergency management courses with business management courses.
