Manny was an abandoned egg next door in Alverthorpe Park. Some of the Sisters of St. Basil were walking the park and found him, cared for him and nurtured him, and taught him everything from math to Ukrainian to free-throws. He and Mac, our thoroughbred horse next door in our barn, are best friends. At any given moment, Manny will be found on our campus planting trees, greeting students, dancing around campus, eating snacks in our campus café, Manny’s Market, and otherwise fiercely cheering on our athletics teams.
Manny’s favorite color is Manor Blue. His favorite song is “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake and it’s rumored that Manny has found pieces of thread that Betsy Ross (who lived on Manor’s campus for a short while) used in her preparation for sewing the flag.
Next time you see Manny, feel free to challenge him to some dance moves. Welcome to Manor Manny – we are blessed to have you as a part of our family!
