Monsignor Farrell High School

Staten Island, NY

It's no secret that throughout the years Monsignor Farrell High School WFBN-TV's media students have rubbed elbows with a number of world-class superstars.

And under the direction of Brother Paul Hannon, they've produced live shows with a professional etiquette that have captured the attention of audiences on many levels.

And after more than two decades of conducting interviews, they have interacted with some of TV's biggest bigwigs and notables from stage and screen, the world of sports, politics and religion.

But their proudest and most memorable moments arise when interviewing Farrell alums -- those who've achieved success and received critical acclaim in their respective fields.

Wednesday morning, that proved to be true when HGTV's "Love It or List It" star Eric Eremita, a Farrell alum, graced the stage of the live TV show.

"Firstly, getting interviewed by students of WFBN-TV was a wonderful experience,'' said Eremita. "They were extremely professional, and I felt like I was on the Today Show."

Then, he had breakfast with Hannon and Farrell alums, before speaking to a classroom of seniors.

"We went around the room and I asked every student what the future holds,'' Eremita said. "It was just incredible. And I can't wait to be invited again! Vir Fidelis! (Latin for "faithman man")

"We had a terrific morning with Eric, both on the 'live' TV show, having breakfast with some of our alumni and speaking to one of my classes," he said. "And the main anchor Wednesday was senior Matthew Sullivan and sophomore Michael Maher, who did a terrific job."
