Buffalo's First Ward

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 and Career Ready

Getting College & Career Ready
March 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? 

  • Can high school graduates today afford not to go to college?
  • What kind of teaching and learning is happening in high school and are they aligned with college expectations?
  • Are there realistic career opportunities that are available to high school graduates without a degree, but some formal education beyond high school that colleges offer?
  • How can I ensure fair value for college costs and future employment outlooks for my children?
  • What is the economic climate in WNY and Buffalo for future career opportunities?

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

Moderator - Dr. John Craig, vice president – education and outreach, WNED|WBFO

This town hall was held at the Buffalo National College Fair, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center on Wednesday, March 18. The event was sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). The college fair began at 6 p.m. and provided workshops and college admission staff from a host of colleges and universities.
