Campus Champion

Refrigeration Mechanic Daron Foster’s accommodating personality is indispensable in his line of work. He answers calls to turn on the heat one day and flip on the air conditioning the next. This month he’s focused on the seasonal transition to ready campus buildings for the summer heat, all while servicing and troubleshooting the College’s numerous heating and cooling systems. Daron earned a journeyman Grade 12 HVAC title through the NYS & CSEA Partnership program, accomplished while working full time, raising his daughter, Kaidon, and volunteering at Dwyer Memorial Park in Little York, where he was nominated to serve on the Citizens Advisory Board.
