  WHEREAS,  Founded  at  Daemen College in 2003 through federal funding,
the Thomas  Reynolds  Center  for  Special  Education  and  After-School

academic failure, as well as students with learning disabilities attend-
ing schools in Buffalo and Amherst; and
  WHEREAS,  Over  its  luminous  ten-year  history,  the Thomas Reynolds
Center for Special Education and  After-School  Programs  has  not  only
provided  invaluable  service  to  the  many  young students who use the
program, it also prepares graduate teacher candidates to  use  research-
based learning strategies in their work with students, thereby enhancing
the capacity of school districts across this great Empire State; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the sense of this Legislative Body to now record its
recognition and appreciation in honoring  this  outstanding  educational
organization, whose decade-long dedication and accomplishments have been
instrumental  in empowering the most vulnerable students, and developing
academic excellence across the spectrum of education; now, therefore, be
it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commemorate  the  10th  Anniversary  of  the  Thomas Reynolds Center for
Special Education and After-School Programs, and to  wish  it  continued
success in its laudable mission; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted  to  the Thomas Reynolds Center for Special Education and After-
