Iona Prep Alum Peter Mullen ’97 Returned as Guest Speaker

Iona Prep alumnus Peter Mullen ’97 returned to the Prep as a guest speaker for Frank Conroy’s AP Government class.

Iona Prep alum Peter Mullen ’97 returned to the Prep as a guest speaker for Frank Conroy’s AP Government class.  Peter is a Yonkers native and currently a Yonkers Police Officer.  He shared his vision about establishing goals in life.  He believed that it was in his blood to be a police officer. Peter and his brother Thomas Mullen '90 followed his then father's footsteps by joining the police force.  Peter made the message loud and clear to the students about how Iona Prep prepared him for his future in law enforcement.  He explained the importance of time management and preparation leading up to the police exam.
Peter goes on to say,” the Academy is much like his freshman year at Iona Prep.  As with any new job or task at hand nerves always kick in, but you have to remain calm and stay focused on the task at hand and you will be able to overcome anything you put your mind to”.  He explained that sometimes you do not know what you want to do in life, but if you do not take chances you will always have the “what if” question in the back of your head.
Peter also encouraged the students to always keep your options open.  There are many opportunities within the Police Department and the students should never close the door on any opportunity.
