Berkeley College will honor Jessica M. Mahoney of Middletown with its 2018 Alumni of the Year award during the college’s commencement ceremony May 11 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The award is presented annually to a Berkeley College graduate who has enjoyed professional success and fulfillment through community service.
Mahoney was a student at Berkeley in White Plains and Manhattan, and then continued taking online courses. She graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in justice studies.
Mahoney said, “I was able to live at home, work part time and obtain an internship at a local law office while earning my degree.” She went on to earn her law degree from Albany Law School in 2014 and late last year opened her own firm, JM Mahoney Law PLLC.
