Fulton, NY – The United Way of Greater Oswego County recently presented the Spirit of Community Award to the Cayuga Community College Fulton Campus. The award is presented annually to volunteers who care and want to make a difference in their community.
?Sue Witmer, director of operations CCC Fulton Campus is the driving force for Cayuga Community College Fulton Campus community involvement. As coordinator of CCC?s in house campaign for United Way, she was instrumental in Cayuga Community College Fulton Campus doubling total of last year?s campaign and increasing the number of donors. A committee member for our Stone Soup, Too luncheon in Fulton, Sue recruited the honor society Phi Theta Phi to volunteer at the event. Additionally, the Criminal Justice Society at CCC has raised over $4000 for United Way in the last 5 years with their annual chili cook off, and United Way Board Member, Maggie Killoran of CCC has helped educate our community funding volunteers for outcome measurements and is currently leading our strategic planning committee. We are proud to call CCC one our community partners,? said Melanie Trexler, executive director of the United Way of Greater Oswego County.
