The staff and the administration of the College Experience are always overjoyed when our students go on to become successful alumni and pursue new achievements. We are also extremely fortunate when alumni choose to remain in the area and continue to make contributions within the realm of Living Resources, Inc. But once in a while, these achievements enter our collective universe like a seismic shift and break new ground. These accomplishments make them role models for current students who will hopefully follow in their footsteps someday!

With that said, the College Experience wishes to offer their heartfelt, congratulatory wishes to David Lieberman who has just been selected to join his former staff members and teachers as their new colleague! Living Resources, Inc. always tries to “walk the walk” and give our individuals the chance to flourish as employees of the agency. They are oftentimes working under the mentorship of supervisors in the main office at 300 Washington Avenue Extension in Albany, NY. (One of our former students has even earned his own cubicle!) This is, however, the first time in the thirteen year history of the College Experience that an alumnus is now an official staff member.

David is currently immersed in the Orientation that all new employees must go through whether they are the receptionist or a new associate executive director. David has not only been a model student, but he is also a seasoned public orator with his public speaking videos having accrued thousands of views on Facebook. David has spoken at Mercy College, our recent Golf Tournament at the Colonie Country Club, and is slated to deliver a talk to education students at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY! David speaks eloquently about his journey on the autism spectrum as well as the hurdles overcome during his early years through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy. Like all of our students, he receives plenty of support from family and close friends from back home. David has also made strides in the hospitality industry since his graduation this past May and has been employed by the Marriott Hotel.
