Thomas McCoy can’t exactly remember how long he’s worked at the QCP Clinic (“Give or take seventeen years, I think…”), but he’s absolutely sure about the benefits to QCP individuals: “It’s a chance to help people, to treat individuals with respect.” And, this past March, Thomas received recognition for his dedicated service from Queens Borough President Melinda Katz when she presented him with an award from (it’s a long title, so hold on) the Queensboro Council for Social Welfare, Inc. National Association of Social Workers, NYC Chapter for Outstanding Service to People of Queens and to the Social Work Profession. Thomas is a Queens native, and graduated from Yeshiva Univeristy. In fact, he began his work at QCP way-back-when, when the Bellerose Campus had just opened, and he worked part-time. Ever low-key about his accomplishments, Thomas wanted to give a shout-out to “all the guys in the Clinic” who help support QCP’s individuals every day. Congratulations, Thomas.
