Students get college experience

JOHNSTOWN – On Feb. 18, students from Fulton-Montgomery Community College’s Human Services courses teamed up with The Wishful Thinking Foundation to bring a middle school student with them to class; a total of 13 middle school students from the Amsterdam school district came to the campus, a news release said.

According to Human Services Prof. Marlene Guiffre, the purpose was twofold: “To have the younger students begin to see college, particularly FMCC, as a possibility in their future; and to have the FMCC students begin to mindfully practice listening and engagement skills.”

According to its website, The Wishful Thinking Foundation is aimed to provide extracurricular activities, educational programs, community service, events, and leagues, primarily for our youth, in order to aid and maintain the mental and physical condition of our participants and set a positive example in our community, the release said.

To find out more about FMCC’s human services program or to schedule an appointment to participate in a class, contact FMCC’s admissions office at 736-3622, Ext. 8301, the release said.
