Volunteers of the Quarter

Sonia Martinez

Sonia is clearly worthy of recognition not only for her long service as a SCORE mentor, but for her extensive work in community outreach. Sonia has been a SCORE Mentor for ten years. She also serves as the Executive Director of the Mohawk Valley Latino Association. She has generously developed and mentored Latino Women business owners in Central NY and serves as board member on several community non-profit organizations.

Marty Doto

We recognize with deep appreciation Marty’s leadership as Chapter Chair during the period of consolidation when formerly separate chapters in Syracuse, Binghamton, Utica, and Auburn, were combined to form the Central NY Chapter. The outcome is a well performing team, and his efforts serve as a fine leadership model for our chapter and others facing organizational challenges.

Joe Morrison

We welcome Joe on board as a new SCORE volunteer and recognize his clear commitment to mentoring as evidenced by the fast pace with which he completed his certification and has begun serving clients. He “hit the ground running” in a noticeable way!
