“If I could focus on theatre every day of my life, I would,” says Haley. “There's [that bit] where people say 'that job that makes you happy, so it doesn't feel like a job.”
Haley has now begun looking at a handful of four-year colleges as her time at SUNY CCC nears the end. It's not surprise she's, of course, looking at those with strong theatre programs.
But she hasn't ruled other avenues out, either. Again, she credits SUNY CCC for helping her see how else her love for theatre can translate out in the real world.
Bailey Walker says she’s always known she’s wanted to be a doctor. In a few months, she’ll be not one, but two steps closer to that goal.
Bailey will soon be a Haverling High School graduate, having also received a degree from SUNY Corning Community College. In fact, she’ll receive her Associates Degree before even walking across the stage to accept her high school diploma.
Bailey began taking Accelerated College Education (ACE) courses her sophomore year of high school — a concurrent enrollment program that allows high school students to choose from over 60 SUNY CCC courses to take at their high school free of charge.
We all know that the path to success isn’t a straight arrow. It’s not shiny, smooth, or clear. It’s steep, rocky, and uncertain. Despite this, it’s important to keep pushing, sacrificing, and dreaming. Lucrecia Frazier ’22 can attest to this, but she’s never lost sight of her end goal: becoming a nurse.
“I love helping people and I knew early on that I wanted to be a nurse,” said Lucrecia. “I’m the oldest of 10 siblings, so I’ve always had a nurturing personality and enjoyed taking care of others.”
SUNY Corning Community College sophomore Anna Moretti ’20 loves the world of finance for those three reasons. According to Anna, the more you understand about finance, the more you understand about the world we live in.
But Anna wasn’t always set on finance. In fact, she found both finance and architecture interesting as a junior in high school. The GST BOCES New Visions Academy’s Innovation, Leadership, and Business Program allowed her to explore both through shadowing opportunities. In addition, she was able to take ACE courses as part of the New Visions program, enabling her to get a jump-start on her general education requirements.
