Mayor Kennedy at SUNY Orange, Newburgh
Mayor Judy Kennedy of Newburgh, NY held a press conference at SUNY Orange today, to introduce a new initiative for the city dubbed “I Am Newburgh.”
The mission, in part, is to “Promote principles and values that the entire community can use to encourage and teach our children and that we as adults can apply….”
In a program borrowed from the Horizons on the Hudson Elementary School, one of twelve principles pertaining to character and values will be featured each month on posters. The project team hopes to get organizations throughout the City to embrace the sharing, modeling, and discussion of these principles during the course of the year.
The “I Am Newburgh” Posters and business cards will be available at no charge to Non-Profits, Businesses, Schools/Teachers, and Organizations. For Further information or to volunteer, visit their website at: ProjectIAm.org
