Dr. Michael J. Fraser (Johnstown School District Psychologist) and Samantha R. Fraser (College of Saint Rose) have been selected to present a program titled “Making A Difference” as part of the 12th Annual Empire Promise Summit in conjunction with the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP), to be held at the Desmond Hotel in Albany, NY, March 31 – April 2, 2016.
The Empire Promise Summit Committee has accepted the Fraser’s proposal for being innovative, educational and “out of the box,” tying into the theme of “Change, Challenge, Opportunity.” The Empire Promise Summit has a rich history of educating, training and advocating on behalf of at-risk youth statewide. All presenters have expertise in their subject areas and come prepared to teach and challenge summit attendees.
The Fraser’s abstract is as follows:
In each of our lives we have the ability to make a difference within ourselves as well with others. In keeping with the theme of the summit, how we Challenge ourselves and embrace the Opportunities of life will determine the Change you need to make or want to make. This presentation will address those points by using examples of set individuals within the entertainment and sports world who have encountered various hurdles and obstacles to become successful not just in their respective field, but as caring human beings. At the end of this presentation you will feel different as to how you look at life, as well as yourself. You will make a difference to all whom you encounter.
