St. Ephrem Alumnae continuing excellence in Bishop Kearney

“What initiative would you implement to address the issue of drug use among the city’s youth?” was the question St. Ephrem Alumnae Gabriella Guzman (Class of 2014) and Emma Schoppmeyer (Class of 2013) answered that awarded them an opportunity to take charge for a day in a NYC Police Department.

Emma Schoppmeyer won the position of Commanding Officer of Internal Affairs, and Gabriella Guzman was named Commanding Officer of the 66th Precinct.

We at St. Ephrem School continue to support and acknowledge the strides our former students make! To read more about Gabriella and Emma go to:
