I have devoted my entire to career to working with students of promise; many of whom are first generation college students. These students are bright and talented but often lack the resources to further their dreams of obtaining a college degree. I am joining this campaign because I believe that a high quality education should be accessible to everyone and that's exactly what SUNY Old Westbury offers; an extraordinary education that is affordable and available to students right here in the Long Island community. At SUNY Old Westbury, students are both challenged and nurtured. It is a place where high expectations intersect with high supports. Every student deserves a college experience like that and we can make it happen. Our dollars are going directly to scholarships for students. I am asking you to help more young people continue their education by donating $55.00 or whatever you can. Your help will make all the difference.
