CJA Supervisor Peter Boyke Honored

Posted on Nov 3, 2016

Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”  Longtime CJA employee Peter Boyke made his decision a long time ago and is now being acknowledged for his altruism and charitable works.  Peter began working at CJA in April of 1988 as a Shift Supervisor in Brooklyn.  Not long after, he was hired as an Operations Manager in Queens.  Along the way he earned his leadership certificate from the Leadership Management Academy. 

Anyone who works with Peter or has come into contact with him during his time at CJA will not be surprised to hear that, while becoming one of CJA’s most valuable players, Peter has also been an MVP in his community.  On October 29, 2016, Peter received a New York City Council Citation for his dedication and contribution to community service.  In addition, he received Congressional Recognition from the United States Congress in honor of his outstanding and invaluable service to the community.

In a citation from the office of the President of the Borough of Brooklyn, Eric L. Adams said, “I salute Peter Boyke, a native of Grenada, West Indies, who migrated to the United States and developed a love for community service;  I applaud him for conducting several workshops regarding health and fitness, organizing an educational clinic where he teaches reading, writing and mathematics, for his active involvement in his church parish, and for being a respected employee of the Criminal Justice System;  I commend him for nobly and selflessly . . .  helping and positively improving the lives of others;  and I thank him for all that he has done to touch and improve the lives of many, helping to move our communities forward as One Brooklyn.”

We here at CJA would like to add our voices to the chorus of well-deserved congratulations for Peter Boyke, and thank him for his continued dedication to CJA and his community.
