    Christina Batista of Ogdensburg and Kayleen Carroll of Franklin recently graduated from Berkeley College.

    They are both multi-level patient care technicians and graduated from the Dover location.

    Jessie Dietz of Lafayette participated in the High Point University's School of Education's Summer Reading Institute. She was one of the graduates working with elementary students on reading, integrated math and science experiments, and writing projects. The purpose was to help the students maintain and build upon what they learned during the school year over the summer.

    The institute also provided each student with 12 to 15 books to keep at the end of the summer. The children chose some of their own books and the teachers chose books they knew would be a good fit for the children.

    Alicia Confrancesco of Hamburg was named to the dean's list at Paul Smith's College for the spring 2014 semester.

    Cofrancesco, who is majoring in hotel, resort and tourism management, earned a semester average of 3.3 or higher to receive this distinction.
