Bloomfield College Recognizes Dr. Schiro, Hosts Natural Science and Mathematics Panel

Dr. Mike Schiro
On Wednesday, April 11, as part of Bloomfield College’s 150th anniversary, the College welcomed Trustees, faculty, staff, students, and alumni to the Natural Science and Mathematics Alumni Panel Discussion and Reception on campus.
"As future scientists and mathematicians, you have an important role to play as educated citizens. You have to investigate things scientifically and objectively," said College President, Richard A. Levao. "You will use your observations to try to recreate and understand scientific theory. You have the ability to use your mind to deduce and figure out truth with partial and incomplete evidence."
Dr. Michael Schiro, Mathematics professor, was recognized for his 50 years of service and presented with a certificate by President Levao.
“My time at Bloomfield College predates this building,” Dr. Schiro quipped, referencing College Hall. Dr. Schiro reflected on his first time on campus in 1968, when he was deciding between job offers. "Once on this campus, I realized really quick that there were some really good people here who wanted, and could, get stuff done. I wanted to get stuff done. So I decided to stay at Bloomfield College."
Dr. Jim Murphy, Chair of the Division of Natural Science and Mathematics and Biology professor, moderated the alumni panel. Dr. Murphy has been with the College for 25 years.
The panel included Dr. Michael De Castro '01, Associate Professor, Farmingdale State College-SUNY. “Bloomfield College felt like home,” reflected Dr. Castro. “Chemistry is my calling. I haven’t worked a day in my life because I am doing what I am passionate about.”
Joining Dr. Castro was Erika Ramirez '10, Manager of Global Compliance Operations, Celgene Corp. “Chemistry is my passion, and Bloomfield College faculty helped me realize that,” shared Ramirez.
Danielle Patterson '13 worked for five years as a Clinical Histotechnologist with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and has recently continued her career with the Bio Defense. 
 “As alumni, we are supposed to give back to our community,” said Patterson. “Bloomfield College has awarded us so much. I’m lucky to have been employed in my desired field immediately upon graduation.”
Rounding out the panel was Marcia Reynolds '94, a Bloomfield High School Science Faculty Member. “Chemistry is a way for me to keep my brain alive!” said Reynolds, who attended part time while working full time.
