Assemblyman John Ceretto (R,C,I-Lewiston) welcomed three students from the University of Buffalo to the Capitol to discuss the importance of education as it relates to the success of New York State’s next generation. The students, Travis West, Emily Li and Dakwame Stewart, talked with Ceretto about their college experience, college costs and student aid, how they can best prepare to enter the workforce, and the resources that higher education needs to deliver the best education possible.

 “The New York we are creating now is the one that the next generation of New Yorkers will live in long after my generation is gone. Given the struggles that young adults are facing with debt and the lack of job opportunities, it was great to hear their perspective on what direction our state needs to take. I thank them for coming and sharing their thoughts,” said Ceretto.
