COLLEGE COST WORKSHOP: 6:30 – 8:00 PM at the Skaneateles Library, 49

E. Genesee St. – John Decker from

College Assistance Plus will discuss how to negotiate

better deals at private colleges and grad schools, regardless of family income. Whether you are

a parent of student in middle school, high school, or already in college, you’ll learn strategies to

find a viable major and career, then progressively reduce the cost of college throughout

undergrad, grad programs, med school, and law school. Six figure student debt is common and

53% of 2010 college grads are unemployed or in non-degree jobs. Starting early in identifying

careers and majors can mitigate this, plus will help avoid changing majors 4 times and staying in

college an average of 5.5 years! The fresh approach that

College Assistance Plus (CAPlus)

developed was covered in full page article in the New York Times. CAPlus will email this article

in advance plus other practical information upon request. NCAA sports strategies will also be

discussed. Admission is free. For more information contact John Decker at 656-7973,

SKANEATELES, N.Y. – “Medical manufacturer Welch Allyn has completed its global headquarters

 

expansion and renovation project. The company unveiled the new LEED Gold certified building

The LEED certification is awarded to buildings that are environmentally responsible. The new

 

headquarters gets 35 percent of its energy from renewable resources and reduces water usage

 

by 25 percent.

 

CEO Julie Shimer says project was about much more than helping out Mother Nature.

 

“It’s not just the environmental, but it includes the environment. It is a company that cares

 

about its employees, about its customers and about its community and I’m proud to be a part of

 

it,” Shimer said.
