President Eanes Celebrated Amongst 'Power Women of Queens'

Congratulations to President Berenecea Johnson Eaneson her recent award at Schneps Media’s annual Power Women of Queens celebration!

In addition to Dr. Eanes, Dr. Christine Mangino, president of Queensborough Community College and Dr. Elizabeth Hendrey, provost of Queens College, were also honorees from the Queens CUNY community. The group also included leaders in healthcare, history tours, senior service, construction, social services and nutrition. York Foundation Board member, Dawn Kelly owner of the York neighborhood’s The Nourish Spot, was also an honoree. 

The late September event was held at one of Queens’ loveliest venues, Terrace on the Park. The view of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is spectacular and the evening was an opportunity for York’s president to meet some of the borough’s prominent professional women after being in a “holding pattern” for the last 18 months. The honor came with a green screen interview with the president and we share it here. 

President Eanes sends her thanks to Publisher Victoria Schneps and her team for the opportunity, as she seeks to expand her circle of friends on behalf of York College.
