Myers Special Programs Completion and Awards Ceremony
Wednesday, June 17, 2015
The Special Programs at the F. Donald Myers Education Center held its annual Completion and Awards Ceremony for the Class of 2015 on Monday, June 15.
Family, friends and staff were in attendance at the Gick Road Conference Center in Saratoga Springs to celebrate the students’ success.
Sanford Street Teaching and Learning Center Principal Rebecca Clemens was the guest speaker. She told the seniors that she began her career at WSWHE BOCES at the Myers Center 31 years ago and it only seemed fitting that she end her career there with them. “It’s an exciting time for you,” Mrs. Clemens enthused. She quoted Aristotle saying, “Educating a mind without educating a heart is no education at all.” Mrs. Clemens stressed to the seniors that one person’s belief in another can make all the difference. She said, “Remember each one of you has a unique gift and talent. No one else is exactly like you.” Most importantly, she reminded them to not let anyone dull their sparkle. “Now go out and be the sparkle in the world,” she said as she passed out a sparkle memento to each completer.
