BOCES Recognized for Record-Setting Fundraising Efforts

ITHACA, NY - The United Way of Tompkins County presented TST BOCES with a certificate of achievement for its significant increase in money raised and overall participation during the 2020 Workplace Campaign fundraiser.

Under the new guidance of Cindy Walter, BOCES faculty and staff increased their participation by an impressive 86%, more than tripling the number of participating employees from last year and setting an all-time BOCES record.

“We decided to make it fun this year by offering up an incentive,” said Walter. “Thanks to our Assistant Superintendent, Dave Parsons, who so graciously volunteered to put his beard on the line for the sake of raising money, we were able to show how BOCES can come together for its community.”
