Batavia, New York – The Genesee Community College Foundation is pleased to announce the brand new Agricultural division of the Annual Campaign. Spanning across all counties in the GLOW region, the Ag Campaign is a new division to the annual campaign that aims to raise funds for student scholarships.
Peter Call, overall chair for the Foundation’s Ag campaign, notes that “Agriculture is the driving economic force in this area. Growth on our farms and ag businesses, as well as the growing opportunities for Ag careers in the GLOW region, will provide GCC students with many options to choose from.”
Letters are being sent from the GLOW area Ag chairs, and Mr. Call is hopeful that the Ag community will generously support the Foundation’s Ag campaign this year. It will be a wise investment for the future of the Ag community as well as the GLOW region.
In addition to being overall campaign chair, Mr. Call will oversee the Genesee County area. He has also announced the following chairs for Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming Counties:
•Roberta Klapper, Livingston County
•Robin Root, Orleans County
•Hans R. Kunze, Wyoming County
Genesee Community College is partnering with Cornell Cooperative Extension to host an Agri-Business Career Exploration event on Monday, December 12 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Conable Technology Building at the Batavia Campus. This event has been specifically designed for community members to see the career opportunities in a variety of agricultural businesses. As always, GCC continues to align its academic programs to meet the needs of businesses in the region.
GCC has seven campuses locations in Albion, Arcade, Batavia, Dansville, Lima, Medina and Warsaw. Many of these campuses have witnessed increased enrollment over the years, and statistics show that 70 percent of GCC graduates remain in the area.
The Genesee Community College Foundation was formed in the mid-eighties as a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing service to and support of the College. Its thirty-member board of directors is comprised of business and civic leaders, and provides funding for student scholarships and grants.
Contributions for support for the College programs and students may be sent to the GCC Foundation, One College Road, Batavia, NY 14020. For more information contact the Foundation (585) 345-6809 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
