Brother William Sullivan. High School Teacher
Most unforgettable moments as a Brother

One day in class at St. Augustine’s I thought of being a Christian Brother. Different assignments made me happy. I was in Troy for 27 years.

One day a former student from Maryland came to De a Salle Hall to visit and drove me to Maryland. As a member of the State Legislature, he presented me with a Teacher Award. I also received a Teacher Award from former students in La Salle Troy and Christian Brothers Academy Lincroft who were at Manhattan College.

I was assigned for 10  years as an assistant at De La Salle Hall. Today I am a patient.
