Julie Allen Cecile ‘84 Julie Allen Cecile ’84 is the Executive Director of the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Site (“McMahon/Ryan”) in Syracuse. McMahon/Ryan, which opened in 2002, is an organization dedicated to ending child abuse through intervention and education. In the past, an abused child described the abuse to many different people, often enduring multiple interviews and being re-traumatized again and again. Child Advocacy Sites make the system -- law enforcement, health care, social services and more -- work together more effectively for children who are abused. McMahon/Ryan is the non-profit organization in Onondaga County that does just that. Bishop Ludden students and faculty have volunteered to help McMahon/Ryan in a variety of ways over the past several years, including hosting fundraisers and wrapping Christmas presents for children who receive services at the site. In June, McMahon/Ryan will be moving into the former Reid Hall building on East Fayette Street in Syracuse. The new facility will bring together the services needed by the victims of abuse and neglect and by their families. The site will be staffed by about 50 people, including doctors, police officers, child abuse advocates, county case workers and mental health therapists. Julie resides in Syracuse with her husband, Syracuse City Court Judge James Cecile, and their three children. Julie is a graduate of Siena College and Syracuse University College of Law. bishopludden.org www.facebook.com/people/bishopludden Mr. & Mrs. Pietropaolo continue their longstanding tradition of taking a group of Bishop students, parents and friends of Bishop Ludden to Europe each spring. These trips began in 1984 when Mrs. Pietropaolo organized her first European trip following Ludden many trips her mother, Mrs. Odette Misik, planned during her tenure at Bishop Ludden. Since 1984, Mrs. Pietropaolo has taken 17 trips abroad with students and European one trip to Quebec, Canada. Starting in 2009, Mr. & Mrs. “P” also began the annual trip tp Washington, DC for our junior high school students. Travel The 2010 Europe Trip was almost derailed with the eruption of Iceland’s Evjafjallajokull Longtime volcano, which closed most of Europe’s major airports. Ludden students got as far as the Newark, NJ airport before experiencing a long delay and ultimately having to Traditon return home disappointed. Fortunately the trip was rescheduled for late June 2010 and most of the original travelers were able to travel then. In April 2011 another group Continues of students and parents traveled to Italy and France, visiting Rome and Vatican City just before Holy Week and the beatification of Pope John Paul II, and then ending their trip by attending the Easter Vigil Mass in Paris. and Expands The 2012 trip to Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France is already filling with eager students and their parents. Each year the trip visits different countries and cities but always ends in Paris - one of Mrs. P’s favorite cities in the world along with Venice and Lucerne. Mrs.P’s favorite thing about traveling with Ludden students is seeing their reactions and what they get out of visiting foreign countries - the kids make all the trips worthwhile! Next year a new excursion is planned. as more and more parents have traveled with their students there has been a request for an adult only trip. In July 2012 Mr. & Mrs. P will travel to Ireland and Scotland for this inaugural trip. Currently 24 reservations have been made and there is room for more adults. If you would like more information please contact Mrs. P at the school 315-468-2591. A 2006 Graduate of Ludden, Rachel went on to receive her Bachelor of Science Degree in biological sciences with a concentration in neuroscience from the State University of New York Buffalo in May 2010. Last August Rachel fulfilled a long time SPOTLIGHT YOUNG ALUMNI dream and joined the Peace Corps. She is now a Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal, francophone West Africa doing urban agriculture work. The program she is assigned to promotes food security, making sure the native people there have access to nutritious foods and extending techniques that conserve water and increase crop yields. She is termed an urban worker as she is located in a city and instead of working in large fields or farms she works with people who have gardens. Rachel’s big project now is to fund a school garden in on the of local elementary schools so that the school can earn extra income from selling the vegetables. In the future she Rachel would like to try and build a canteen so that the local school children can eat lunch in school instead of walking up to two kilometers to get back and forth from school at lunchtime. Gonnella Rachel decided to join the Peace Corps because she wanted to travel and to experience ‘06 another culture. What she would like people back home to know is that the Peace Corps is an incredibly difficult but ultimately rewarding experience and she would encourage other alumni to consider serving with the Corps.
