Photo Caption: Andre Sayegh, Mayor of the City of Paterson, engaged students in a conversation about their future goals and his vision for the City of Paterson, during an open forum at Berkeley College in Woodland Park on February 19, 2019. Mayor Sayegh shared his vision for the future of the City, with the Great Falls as the anchor for economic development. The Mayor shared the City’s new tagline: “Great Falls. Great Food. Great Future.” He also had an opportunity to speak with students one-on-one during a luncheon at the campus. Mayor Sayegh asked students about their majors and what they planned to do with their futures. “Be sure to cultivate your contacts and when you come to Paterson, stay in Paterson,” Mayor Sayegh told students. Pictured (top center) Mayor Sayegh shakes hands with Berkeley College student Liana Pinero of Paterson, while Dallas Reed, PhD, Vice President, Student Development and Campus Life, Berkeley College, looks on. Pictured (bottom left) Mayor Sayegh speaks with Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College. There are more than 355 Paterson residents enrolled at Berkeley College. “We are proud to introduce you (the Mayor) to some of the great students of Paterson,” President Smith said. “It is good to have a bright and talented elected official who is going to do the right thing for his City.” Pictured (bottom right) Mayor Sayegh poses with Berkeley College students and administrators before the student forum.
