Congratulations to College Experience Program graduate Miranda Polmatier, who will be working a White Cap at the Saratoga Race Course this summer. For those unfamiliar with the term, a White Cap is an usher hired by the New York Racing Association (NYRA). Some of Miranda’s important duties will include collecting tickets, wiping seats, and greeting customers when they enter the premises.
The College Experience is a certificate program that provides students with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to attend college, be part of a campus community, and take part in a program that helps them transition to independent adult life. The College Experience program combines general education courses, elective courses, and real-world living and job experiences to prepare students for success in the real world.
Please join us in cheering Miranda on to success in this new position, congratulations Miranda!
