The First Ward built Buffalo and, to some degree, America. The industries that blossomed along the shores of the Buffalo River and Lake Erie are largely responsible for creating Buffalo as a manufacturing and industrial powerhouse from the early 1800s through the mid-1900s. Buffalo’s industrial strength fueled American economic growth and expansion.
Getting College & Career ReadyMarch 18, 2015 Buffalo National College Fair - Buffalo Niagara Convention Center
The Common Core Learning Standards across the country all support the ideal of “college and career ready” as a major initiative for all graduates of high school. What does this mean to parents and students? Having a general understanding of options and choices available for their children is not adequate today in making decisions that include both college and careers. What are employers seeking and saying about entry-level career options and readiness?
The following local experts shared their insights to provide attendees with important information before attending the College Fair:
Ms. Elizabeth Callahan, director, Workforce Development, Buffalo Niagara Partnership Dr. Nathan Daun-Barnett, associate professor, Graduate School of Education, SUNY at Buffalo Dr. Steven Harvey, executive director, WNY College Connection Dr. Susan McCartney, director, Small Business Development Center, Buffalo State College Mr. Darrell Slisz, director, Workforce and Education, Catholic Charities

Thank you to our Blues Bash sponsors!
2015 WBFO's Buffalo Blues Bash performers:
Ghost Town Blues Band
Ghost Town Blues Band is a modern blues band with an intimate knowledge of both blues, rock and improvisational jams. At the same time, the band’s raw energy and intensity is reminiscent of some of the best blues that rock n' roll has ever offered. The band can turn on a dime from North Mississippi hill country grooves to classic electric urban blues and funk. This Memphis-based, gritty, six-piece has been touring the U.S. since its inception in 2009, gaining a strong following within the blues and Jam Band circuit. Ghost Town Blues Band were 2nd place winners at the 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn.
The Patti Parks Band
The Patti Parks Band is one of Western New York’s most versatile and experienced groups, comprised of the most talented musicians that have come along in a long time. From original musical arrangements to blues to Motown and more, The Patti Parks Band is not the same old thing.
This event is sold out!!
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. Tasty food, wine and beer will be available for purchase so come hungry and thirsty!
