The New York State Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust (LECET) celebrated a milestone — 15 years of generous support to Oswego’s Presidential Scholars Program. Bill Shannon, business manager for the Upstate New York Laborers’ Council and LECET representative, presented a check for $25,000 to President Deborah F. Stanley in the autumn. “We believe in the importance of education and in maintaining strong relationships with our community,” said Shannon. He added that the trust is happy to support the Presidential Scholars program, which makes a high-quality education possible for many students, like the children of LECET’s members. Stanley thanked LECET for their continuing support of the program, saying “LECET’s unprece-dented longevity of commitment to partnering with SUNY Oswego not only benefits our Presidential Scholars, but also the people of our state and region as these dedicated students take their Oswego degrees out into the world and do great things.”
