We greatly appreciate the opportunity to connect and interact with your students. We met some promising candidates; whom we are following up with,” said a NY recruiter of Green Mountain Energy.

Student Artwork at YMCA

Thursday, August 28, 2014

YMCA of Central and Northern Westchester and The College of Westchester have partnered to display three award-winning artwork pieces, designed by CW students.

Roselle Glick, Career Counselor and Instructor at CW, explains the importance of this partnership, “This partnership means a lot to me. As the Career Counselor for our Digital Media students, I was looking for a way to display our student’s artwork. The YMCA seemed like the perfect place to do this given its commitment to serving the community. I’m excited to work with the staff at the YMCA to help inspire their members and hopefully inspire our students to exhibit their artwork.”

The artists whose work is being permanently displayed at the YMCA in White Plains are former winners of The College of Westchester Charitable Foundation Art Contest Scholarship Award.
The first one is by Mecca Allim, 2013 winner. The second is an illustration by Sharnice Mickens titled “The Path to Success.” The third one is by Michele Cores titled “My Tools Are My Partners Who Guide Me to Success.”

Everybody is invited to visit the exhibition at the White Plains YMCA branch on Mamaroneck Avenue.
