During his 28-year career with the Boston Police Department, Linskey was recognized for helping decrease violent crime in the city and also boosting public trust in the department.

"It seems pretty scary to jump back into school, but Curry offers excellent resources and the professors have your back. You will learn so much and if you are like me, you'll be inspired by the professors as well as your fellow classmates."
"Curry had a program that was a perfect fit for me at the time. I was able to go to work, gain experience, and fit the program into my life. It was difficult, but it was worth it," said Belony, who passed the state exam and currently works as a Registered Nurse at Boston's Visiting Nurses Association.
"I just said that's it, I have to make a commitment. I got to a point where my kids were getting older; they were going to be headed to college. I wanted to set an example for them to show them how important education is. I just decided to dive in and I went back full time."
Sydney Lowe '98 may not have taken the most traditional path in securing a bachelor's degree from Curry College. But after locking up a spot as the Manager of Broadcasting Operations for Major League Baseball Network, she doesn't have any regrets.
Scott Richards '12 had a laser focus once he decided to pursue a career with Homeland Security Investigations, formerly known as U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). He served in the Coast Guard right after high school, but ultimately was inspired by an ICE special agent he met on the job.
Peter Losi '07 is a third-generation nurse, and a nurse anesthetist at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, but it took him several years before he finally decided to pursue that career.
"I've always liked working with numbers and finance," says Shannon Boggs, who graduated in May 2011 with a Management degree with an emphasis in accounting. "After earning an associate degree in General Business at Massasoit Community College, I knew I wanted to get a bachelor's degree. Curry made that an easy choice."
“I found the evening classes to be very helpful since I work full time - more than full time…the program is flexible and the faculty and staff were very accommodating… For adult learners you have to work, you have children, all of these other things that are going on in your life… and the program allows you to do it all .”
"My degree paved the way for my advancement. If I had not taken classes, I may not have been able to progress to the point I am now. I have recently taken on the responsibility for the entire service business in North America."
