The second annual Genesee Community College ACE program Teacher and Counselor Appreciation Night was held Tuesday, June 29 at Dwyer Stadium. Over 100 local teachers, counselors and their families enjoyed a night out with the Muckdogs as they competed against the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.
The College’s ACE program or Accelerated College Enrollment is a partnership between Genesee Community College and Western New York high schools to provide college courses to secondary students during the school day. These programs offer accelerated high school students the opportunity to enroll in college level courses and to earn college credits while still in high school, at a fraction of the cost of standard tuition.
The ACE Teacher and Counselor Appreciation Night is the College’s way of thanking the dedicated teachers and school counselors who spend countless hours instructing and advising students in the ACE programs.
“The night out with the Muckdogs is just a small way we can say thanks to our local teachers and guidance counselors for all that they do for the ACE program,” Karen Wilk, program specialist for ACE programs at Genesee said. “Without their support, our ACE program would not be as successful as it is.”
