Josh Fleming

Genesee Community College LPP

What year did you graduate high school?

What is the name of the school you attended?
Byron-Bergen Central Schools

What are you up to now?
College life! I’m a business management major at Grove City College, and just trying to do the best I can.

How did you get involved with Liberty Partnerships?
My amazing Liberty Partnership leader, Mrs. Golden, advertised a trip to Hidden Valley Animal Adventures. I stuck with it until I graduated.

What are some of your favorite activities/programs that you did through Liberty Partnerships?
College trips, weekend trips (we did Gettysburg and Washington D.C.) as well as day trips to Fossil Parks and Museums.

Describe how Liberty partnerships shaped your life both in and out of classroom?
Liberty Partnerships gave me the opportunity to talk to people I would not have normally talked to, as well as giving me the chance to see places I’d never think I’d see beforehand. It’s a great learning experience in accepting others and learning to co-exist with other members.

What are you most proud of?
I’m proud of the maturing this program brought me through. It’s developed me into a man with plenty of skills to love on others through how I live.

What advice do you have for current students?
Be friendly to all the other members, no matter how much they get on your nerves. It’s easy to get mad but it’s better to be mindful of their thought process and life. You never know what someone is going through.
