Businesses made Sister to Sister possible

I would like to acknowledge The Leader-Herald’s story about the Amsterdam-Gloversville-Johnstown branch of the American Association of University Women’s 14th annual Sister to Sister Summit on May 21 at Fulton-Montgomery Community College.

The interest reporter Arthur Cleveland took in the day’s events was evident in his May 22 article in the paper. The “Cheers” editorial on May 25 was also recognition of the work the branch does to foster girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math.

This summit would not be possible without the support of local business. This year, the donors were Delta Kappa Gamma, Stewart’s Shops, St. Mary’s Hospital, Nathan Littauer Hospital, Soroptomist International of Fulton County, St. Johnsville Teachers Association, NBT Bank, Fulton County Credit Union, Fit Happens, PostNet, Fort Plain Teachers Association, Knox Teachers Association, Paula Carnevale and the Fonda-Fultonville Middle School students.

We also thank the 12 schools that sent 155 girls in grades six to eight to experience a day of experiential workshops, camaraderie and our capnote speaker, Chandra Cotter, Johnstown’s city engineer, who answered many pertinent questions the girls had on her life and choice of becoming an engineer.
