Fourth graders at J.T. Roberts PreK-8 School were smiling from ear to ear during a recent visit by Onondaga Community College administrators. Interim Dean of Visual, Performing & Applied Arts Meredith Cantor-Feller and Coulter Library Chair Fantasia Thorne-Ortiz presented students with lightly used books for them to read and share with each other.
The visit was the product of a partnership between Roberts and OCC aimed at helping students start thinking about career opportunities and higher education at a younger age. The College has similar partnerships with McKinley-Brighton Elementary and Meachem Elementary.
