A Message from the President

Thursday, January 16, 2020

Dear NYTS Community,

It is with sadness that I share the news of the passing of one of our former students, Mr. Clarence Wright. The NYTS family sends our sincerest condolences to his family and we will continue to hold them in our thoughts and in our hearts.

Over the last couple of years, Mr. Wright called from his hospital bed inquiring about coming back to NYTS, and pressed his way to attend our fall retreat in hopes of returning to complete his M.Div. degree. We celebrate his life, his commitment to ministry and education, and will miss his presence in our classrooms and in our lives.

Services for Mr. Wright will be held tomorrow at 10 am at Mt. Pisgah AME Church located at 354 Forrest Street, Jersey City, NJ 07304.


In deepest sympathy,

The Reverend Dr. LaKeesha Walrond
