For an unprecedented 14th year in a row, the New York State Laborers–Employers Cooperation and Education Trust (LECET) has generously supported Oswego’s Presidential Scholars Program. Bill Shannon, business manager for the Upstate New York Laborers’ Council and LECET representative, presents a check for $25,000 to President Deborah F. Stanley. “The college continues to produce a product [education] that is second to none for its students, and certainly the ongoing construction program continues to provide benefits for our members,” Shannon said. “We hope the relationship continues. The spirit of cooperation and support is worthwhile.” He added that the trust is happy to support the Presidential Scholars program, because of the importance of education. Stanley thanked LECET for their continuing support of the program. “LECET’s long history of commitment to partnering with higher education has far-reaching effects,” said Stanley. “With their continued support, the LECET-sponsored Presidential Scholars earn a high-quality education, which they can use to benefit the people of our state and region.”
