2009 CollegeWorks Graduates

CollegeWorks - Class of 2009

The CollegeWorks program is a collaborative project between The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter and Mohawk Valley Community College. It was established to improve student transition from high school to employment, and is a non-credit, non-degreed, two-year certificate program for individuals with special needs who desire to get a better job and obtain college experience.

The year one curriculum offers students an exploratory career assessment in the fields of caregiving, food service, industrial/maintenance, retail/office and animal care. In the second year, students elect to study in one occupational area and participate in a work-study at a local job site. After graduation the students will seek employment in their respective fields.

On Tuesday, May 19th, thirteen students celebrated the completion of their certificate programs when CollegeWorks held its graduation ceremony on the Mohawk Valley Community College campus.
The class of 2009 graduates were Shawn Adkins - Barneveld, Carl Annese Jr. - Marcy, Stephanie Cornish - Waterville, Channing Curry - Utica, Kayla George - Utica, Nicole George - Utica, Yvonne Hoffert - Utica, Stacy Nieman – Holland Patent, Daniel O'Dell - Ilion, Brian Omes - Utica, Thomas Starowicz - Whitesboro, Samantha Wisnoski - Chadwicks and Yolanda Zehr - Utica.
