 Matthew Powers's Testimonial
"I return to the area to teach, to show students the value of the Mohawk Valley, to be closer to my family, and to give back to the community that helped shape who I am today. Since returning I have had the unique opportunity to discover the Mohawk Valley and myself. I have reconnected with my roots in many ways, reconsidered the initial headstrong judgments of my youth, and have found a deep appreciation and love for this area that I thought was lost. For that, I am grateful. M. Powers, 2/16/11
