2020 Fall Day of Caring
Congratulations to Sheina Leger, an East Ramapo Central School District Senior and Rockland BOCES Digital Marketing student, whose artwork was chosen for the 2020 Fall Day of Caring t-shirt design. Sheina is a member of the SkillsUSA Vocational Club at Rockland BOCES CTEC and has shown tremendous promise in the field of digital design. Her artwork was chosen from among 30 other design submissions for its originality, intricate detail, and for capturing the spirit of the UWRC Fall Day of Caring. Dana Treacy, UWRC President & CEO commented, "UWRC has had a wonderful partnership with the Digital Marketing Program at Rockland BOCES for several years, which provides students, like Sheina, the opportunity to interact with UWRC as their client and draft a design based on our needs, providing students with an invaluable work experience."
Pfizer Inc., the 2020 Fall Day of Caring Student Leadership Award Sponsor, is particularly pleased to recognize and acknowledge Sheina for her creativity, thoroughness of design, and attention to detail. Excellence and joy are among the Pfizer values and to see these characteristics in a budding designer is truly wonderful. "Pfizer Pearl River colleagues are grateful the United Way is able to help so many people, said Pam Soni, Pearl River Site Affairs & Colleague Engagement Lead. We're glad to support their efforts."
