About Angela Kulewicz

Angela Bernadette Kulewicz was on this earth for 22 ½ years. She was smart, funny, and had a warm and generous heart. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, mom and friend. Her instinct was always to lend a helping hand to those in need.

Kulewicz’s talents were many. She was a gifted artist who left a number of artworks behind, including some amazing portraits using the medium she liked most—charcoal. Her favorite subject was her daughter, Reina Bernadette. Kulewicz was also a gifted musician. She was an excellent piano player (Chopin was her favorite composer) and she had a beautiful singing voice. She co-wrote a number of songs that she performed in various locales on Long Island. She was also an outstanding bowler who was MVP of her high school team and an all-league selection. She was a tough competitor.

As much as anything, Kulewicz loved to make people laugh. She was a good mimic: She could do a variety of accents and also did a mean Elvis Presley imitation. She loved to make funny faces—a favorite was to press her face against the window when you were outside and least expected it—as a way to make something less serious. She could also be stubborn, determined and focused, and she experienced both the benefits and disadvantages of these traits.

Kulewicz had just graduated from Adelphi University with her BFA in Art and Design Education. She was excited and nervous about taking the next step to be an art teacher and was putting together her résumé and lesson plans. Everyone who knew her was certain that she would be an outstanding teacher.

It is the hope of the family and friends who contributed to the scholarship that bears her name that talented future teachers will be inspired by Angela Kulewicz’s spirit, love of art and big heart.

About the Scholarship

The Angela B. Kulewicz Art and Design Education Scholarship was created by Leslie and Mark Kulewicz, MBA ’85, to honor their late daughter’s memory and spirit. The scholarship will be awarded to one deserving undergraduate upperclassman enrolled in Adelphi’s BFA in Art and Design Education program who exhibits a passion for social justice and global engagement. “The recipient should be passionate about justice and fairness just like Angela was,” said Cindy Maguire, Ph.D., Kulewicz’s favorite professor during her time at Adelphi. “I think that is the best way to honor Angela.”
