Arc Herkimer President/CEO, Kevin Crosley said, “Lorene has grown tremendously in her role as Executive Vice President – Supports and Services over the last five years and was the logical candidate to send through the Leadership Institute in its inaugural year. She is an invaluable member of our team at Arc Herkimer and we congratulate her on graduating from the program and for her contributions to the agency”.

MV Golf & Event Center Interim General Manager and Arc Herkimer Executive Vice President – Business Operations/CFO Anthony Visconti said, “We were happy to host The Arc New York at our new facility.
