Two area residents have been named to the Board of Managers at Lincoln Hall, the residence for troubled boys in Somers off Route 202.
John L. Corcoran of Yorktown Heights and Edward G. Angelini of Baldwin Place have been added to the board, President Douglas W. Wyatt, announced.
Here is the press release:
“These two local residents join another Somers resident who is already a member of the Lincoln Hall Board, James L. Garrity, a former federal judge. Lincoln Hall will benefit greatly by these additions to our Board. Their professional qualifications will enhance our efficiency and efficacy in delivering services to the youngsters we serve. And, the fact that they are residents of the greater upper Westchester community will help us improve our perspective as good neighbors throughout the locality,” Mr. Wyatt said.
Mr. Corcoran is a partner in the Manhattan-based firm of Owen J. Flanagan & Co., Certified Public Accountants. He received his accounting degree from Iona College in New Rochelle, graduating with Honors in 1982. His specialty is in not-for-profit auditing and accounting. Mr. Corcoran is a long time resident of Yorktown Heights where he lives with his wife and two children and where he volunteers as a religious education teacher at St. Patrick’s Parish.
“I welcome the opportunity to participate in the important work of Lincoln Hall, which has helped change the lives of so many young men over nearly a century and a half. And, I am grateful for the honor of being called to serve,” Mr. Corcoran said.
Mr. Angelini is associate general counsel of Purdue Pharma L.P., a privately held pharmaceutical company based in Stamford, CT. He is a graduate of Amherst College and Boston University School of Law where he earned his J.D degree in 1993. Mr. Angelini resides in Baldwin Place with his wife and four children.
“The boys served by Lincoln Hall have few alternatives if they are to become productive members of society. For many of them, Lincoln Hall represents a last chance to get back on the right path. The continued success of this historic institution, therefore, ought to be a matter of importance to all of us, and I am proud for the opportunity to lend my professional and personal capabilities to its management,” said Mr. Angelini.
Lincoln Hall was founded in 1863. It is a nonprofit educational center providing residential and community services to troubled youths and their families. In December, the school was in the news when five teens were arrested following a riot-like situation on the campus that resulted in injuries to a boy and two staffers.
