SUNYIT employees turn celebrater co-worker's 100th Birthday

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

SUNYIT is home to many employees, but only one of them can claim the title of centenarian.

Mollie Wertheim is turning 100 years old, and almost the entire staff of the college turned out to celebrate her milestone at the school's Student Center on Monday.

Wertheim works in the campus Admissions Office and has done so since 1976 when she started as part of a local program for retirees.

"I don't feel any differently than I did yesterday or a year ago," she said. "All the same. I take one day at a time and live the best i can."

She says she has no plans to retire from SUNYIT and that she will enjoy working as long as she can.
