Kyle Cunningham, our friend and the Senior Director of OSE whom we lost this past summer, is virtually impossible to describe in such a limited space.
In sixteen years and across multiple departments, Kyle built genuine relationships with literally thousands of current and former students. Everyone seemed to have a story about Kyle, from a DBi halfway around the world to the backstage fiesta at TSDL (Think Social Drink Local). Kyle was somebody you wanted to share your news with – your victories and your tragedies—because he was genuinely interested in connecting. His fundamental character traits were those you would find in your closest friends: loyal, protective, funny, and a tremendous travel companion.
Kyle, a gifted manager, had a skill set so unique that Stern actually created a new position for him: he would work to ensure students would have the best possible experience as they made the transition from students to alumni. Who better than Kyle Cunningham, Stern’s greatest ambassador, who knew and loved everyone?
Shortly before we lost Kyle, he finally determined what his title would be in this new role: Director of Happiness. We couldn’t have agreed more.
A remembrance and celebration of Kyle will be held on Thursday, October 13 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at 44 West 4th Street in KMC’s Gardner Commons, room 1-100. Please RSVP here.
