Rocky the Hawk, a rara-avis (rare-bird) since birth, has always believed that, "The early bird catches the worm," and finds it to be true every time he spread his wings. His bird's-eye view includes all those who accept the SOAR challenge and continue to strive and put a 'feather' in their cap upon graduation! Though confident that the community of Rockland Community College will continue to take these fledgling scholars under their wings, he makes his own unique commitment, saying to himself, "I will keep watching you like the hawk I am.”
