The Graduate

Just call her La Licensiada.

Landa Towns, Distribution Manager for both The Manhattan Times and The Bronx Free Press, and the papers’ longest-serving team member, is officially a graduate.

The graduate is surrounded by, from left to right, her grandmother Toribia, her father Peter, her mother Mercedes, her son Miguel, and her brother Leandro.

Resplendent in traditional cap and gown, Towns walked in the 47th Commencement Ceremony of Lehman College of the City University of New York (CUNY) this past Thurs., May 28th.

She received her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and was joined by her family and friends.

Though Towns is widely known for having spent nearly two decades overseeing the vast delivery, subscription, and maintenance required to deliver tens of thousands of these weekly bilingual newspapers throughout two boroughs, she has also served in management and administrative roles – and has been a prolific and important contributor to its pages with words and images.

In fact, the accomplished and talented photographer intends on pursuing the visual medium more avidly in the near future.

Felicidades, Landa.

La graduada

Simplemente llámenla licenciada.

Landa Towns, gerente de distribución tanto de The Manhattan Times como The Bronx Free Press, y el miembro de mayor antigüedad de los equipo de ambos periódicos, es oficialmente una graduada.

Con Luis Miranda y la Dra. Luz Towns-Miranda.

Resplandeciente en los tradicionales toga y birrete, Towns entró en la Ceremonia de Graduación 47 de Lehman College de la City University de Nueva York (CUNY) el pasado jueves 28 de mayo.

Recibió su licenciatura en Sociología y fue acompañada por su familia y amigos.

Aunque Towns es ampliamente conocida por haber pasado casi dos décadas supervisando la entrega, suscripción y mantenimiento requerido para entregar decenas de miles de estos periódicos bilingües semanales a lo largo de dos condados, también ha servido en puestos de gestión y administrativos y ha sido una prolífica e importante contribuyente de sus páginas con palabras e imágenes.

De hecho, la fotógrafa consumada y talentosa tiene la intención de seguir el medio visual más ávidamente en un futuro próximo.

Felicidades, Landa.
