Some folks waste no time. Onondaga Community College’s new Provost Dr. Daria Willis has been on the job exactly one month, and she’s already making an impact. Today she met students from the Synergy internship program (Mercy Works, Inc.) at Upstate Medical University.  During her brief commencement remarks, she encouraged the students to reach for their goals and never take the any aspect of their educational opportunities lightly.

It’s always good to see new people bring new energy to existing programs (Willis is from the ATL, and got degrees from FAMU and Florida State). If you see her out and about show her some love.

Gestures like this help put the “C” in community college.
