In Mr. Jakimer's own words...

While sitting in my cubicle, approximately one year after I graduated from Castleton State College, I realized that this job I held in accounting was not fulfilling for me. I wanted what I did to make a difference, an impact on the community. I thought about all of the times in college where I was most comfortable and I realized it was when I was up in front of a class, presenting and teaching my peers a topic which I had researched and become an expert in. That day I walked in to human resources and told them I was leaving and that day I went down to Lehman to find out what I needed to do in order to be accepted into the program. I enrolled in Westchester Community College and a year later I was at Lehman College working towards building my new career. It has been one of the most fulfilling experiences in my life and I continue to be inspired by the new students I have each year.
