Alums Take Part in ‘Tyler’s Troops’ Celebration
First responders around the nation joined together on Thursday, March 6th to give 7-year-old Tyler Seddon a birthday celebration he'll never forget. Hundreds of police officers, including Curry alumni Carrie Hormanski (CJ '10), Mike Worrick (CJ '11), and Chris Bonadies (CJ '11), convened in Burrillville, RI, where the festivities took place.
Hormanski, who received her Master's in Criminal Justice from Curry in 2013, is a police officer in Pawtucket, RI, while Worrick (pictured below left) is a patrolman in Newmarket, NH, and Bonadies (right) is working for the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department.
Tyler, who is battling leukemia for the second time, has an infinite love for anything to do with firefighters, law enforcement, and the military. His mom reached out to local officials in an attempt to surprise Tyler with birthday cards from his heroes and received an overwhelming response, resulting in the 'Tyler's Troops' event.
Alum Melissa Randall (COM '09), a multi-media journalist for ABC6/WLNE-TV, played a vital role in the celebration as well. Randall (pictured below) kept the public involved in the birthday party with her live broadcasts at the scene and constant updates to the ABC6 website.
It is amazing to see our Curry graduates influencing the lives of others in such an impactful way. Thank you to our alums for the great pictures!
