It was an evening filled with celebration and camaraderie.

Longtime New Community employees rubbed elbows with former colleagues and community development leaders on an occasion that felt much like a reunion.

The event that drew such a dynamic crowd of more than 100 people was the long-awaited release of Monsignor William J. Linder’s new book, “Out of the Ashes Came Hope,” which officially debuted October 27, 2016, at an author talk and reception.

Law School And Beyond:
NCC Parent Passes Bar, Builds Legal Career

Tyana Murray admits there were times when she wanted to quit law school. And perhaps she might have—had she not already come so far.

As a single parent, Murray embarked upon the formidable task of pursuing her law degree while also raising her young daughter, Tahyae Fisher, who attended NCC’s Community Hills Early Learning Center in Newark since the age of six months.

“It was definitely a struggle trying to keep it all together,” Murray said. “You need to know how to deal with the cards dealt to you and still prevail through it all,” she said.

Murray successfully took the LSAT, the admissions test for law school, but that was only the first of many hurdles she faced. Due to her family obligations, Murray wanted to attend school locally but ended up getting waitlisted at the Rutgers University School of Law. After weighing her options, she decided to enroll at Northeastern University School of Law, more than 200 miles away in Boston.
