DSC Student Employee Rick Abare Off to NYC

Many of our current students and alums will remember long time student employee Richard Abare.  Rick worked for DSC for nearly 5 years.  During this time he wore many hats including exam proctor, scribe, brochure designer, assistive technology specialist and math tutor.  He became an invaluable resource to students, staff and faculty.  Rick earned his masters degree in statistics in May 2014.  Today, Rick is off to launch a new career with Democracy Prep Public Schools in Harlem, NY.  We wish Rick the best of luck in his new position.  Democracy Prep is getting a real gem!
