Campus Champion

Joseph Mogavero ’18, an adolescence education: English major, believes the greatest tools we can give our students are those that help them discover the power of language. The aspiring teacher plans to help children and teens find their voices through writing, because all students, including those with mental and physical challenges, need to be heard. He’s on track for success – Joe graduated with the highest grade point average at Commencement 2018 on Saturday. Quite an accomplishment for this two-time transfer who discovered success with SUNY Cortland’s education program as a junior. “Teachers are education activists and I plan to defend students’ rights,” Joe said.
