Stepping Up the Avenue

Fordham enjoyed pride of place at the 250th New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark, FCLC ’79, served as Grand Marshal, while more than 500 Fordham alumni, students, family and friends marched up Fifth Avenue as one of the largest collegiate contingencies in attendance.

Earlier thatmorning, alumni gathered at the Princeton Club for a pre-parade brunch. Christopher Maginn, Ph.D., director of Fordham’s Institute of Irish Studies, and Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of the University (center), addressed the group before a performance by the Broome County Celtic Pipes and Drummers.
