FM and Mayfield Central School Announce Surprise Acceptance of H.S. Seniors
October 4, 2022 – JOHNSTOWN, NY Fulton-Montgomery Community College and Mayfield Central School have joined together to accept all 80 seniors for Fall 2023 at FMCC.
“The entire class of 2023 of Mayfield Central School has been accepted today. Throughout the course of this year, we will provide you with opportunities both at Mayfield, and at FM, that will showcase more about what our campus has to offer” stated Dr. Truckenmiller, President of FMCC.
“It’s a great day for Mayfield and it’s a great day for FMCC as we begin this collaboration. It is really important for students thinking of going to college to have the opportunity to visit a campus, how paying for college works, and what courses/programs are offered at a college” stated Mayfield Superintendent, Christopher Harper.
This collaboration is several months in the making. The students at Mayfield were finally made aware of this acceptance at a surprise assembly this morning. At the assembly, they walked across the stage to collect their acceptance letters, listened to college success stories, and learned about the “FMCC Difference.” Busses were then awaiting the students so they could visit FMCC in-person today.
“Mayfield is small enough that they take extra care to know who you are and care about where you go from here. We have a similar approach at FMCC that combines faculty and staff dedicated to helping our students with both transfer and career-ready programs” stated Dr. Truckenmiller.
Students stated they were surprised, shocked, and that it was unexpected but a good thing. The FM admissions staff will continue to work with these students on exposing them to FMCC and college in general.
