JSCB Phase II Will Hold First Meeting with New Board Members
Legislaon has been passed for the Joint Schools Construcon Board (JSCB), creang the second phase of the project authorizing the mayor and superintendent to appoint new members to the board. The rst meeng of the new board will take place on Thursday, Nov. 21, 9:00 a.m., at Syracuse City Hall.“I am excited to bring together a diverse group of community leaders who have the experience and ambion needed to get the job done,” said Syracuse Mayor Stephanie A. Miner. “The Joint Schools Construcon Board will be well-served by these individuals. I look forward to tackling the next big challenge together.”The board composion was codied into state law when the second phase of the JSCB was authorized. The new board now similarly resembles the composion of the city of Rochester’s Joint Schools Construcon Board.During the rst phase of JSCB work, three schools were completely rebuilt including Fowler High School, the Instute of Technology at Central Tech, and Dr. Weeks Elementary School.The H.W. Smith K-8 School, another project in the Phase I porolio, is nearing compleon.The members of the JSCB are as follows: Mayor Stephanie A. Miner, Sharon L. Contreras, Superintendent of Schools; Hon. Calvin Corridors, Commissioner of Educaon; Edward Cuello, AXA Equitable; Chuck Merrihew, Vice President of External Aairs and Advancement, Syracuse University; Sharon Owens, Execuve Director of the Southwest Community Center; and Hon. Van B. Robinson, President of the Syracuse Common Council.“This is an excing me in the Syracuse City School District as we embark on this next phase of school construcon,” said Sharon L. Contreras, superintendent of the Syracuse City School District. “Our students and teachers deserve world-class learning environments. I look forward to working with this new board to make this a reality for our students, sta and families.”
SSIC Seeks to Educate Small Business Owners with Boot Camp and Expo
The South Side Innovaon Center (SSIC) will be hosng the “Grow Your Business Boot Camp and Business Expo,” Dec. 7th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.The event, funded by Sam’s Club Giving Program, will feature presentaons from local business professionals on topics including media management, technology, nancial planning, access to capital, branding, enty formaon, legal issues, and growth and exit planning.Aendees will be able to network, as well as meet other business professionals and organizaons within the local community. Parcipants will also be provided lunch with a keynote speaker.“The South Side Innovaon Center is proud to be chosen as the facilitator of the Grow Your Business Boot Camp event sponsored by Sam’s Club,” said El-Java Abdul-Qadir, manager of the SSIC. “This event will connect small-business owners with the resources and tools they need to increase their revenue, create jobs and contribute posively to their families and community, which will ulmately increase the vitality of the local economy.”The South Side Innovaon Center aids in the creaon of new ventures and helps to make exisng ones sustainable. The program, launched in 2006 is part of the larger South Side Entrepreneurial Connect Project (SSECP), which seeks to idenfy and support sustainable ventures, and includes infrastructure building, student and faculty engagement through consulng teams, a microcredit fund, and training programs for entrepreneurs and opportunies for minority purchasing.Sam’s Club Giving Program has a long history of giving back to the communies they serve through product donaons, grants to local non-prot civic organizaons and associate volunteerism. The organizaon said it has three main goals: reach small business owners with educaon, training and technical support; provide access to capital that fosters business growth; and increase revenue while maintaining and creang jobs.The SSIC is located at 2610 S. Salina Street in downtown Syracuse.
