HERKIMER, N.Y. — Herkimer County Community College announced it has appointed Kasper A. Cuda, of Herkimer, as grant administrator.

Cuda will oversee Herkimer College’s participation in the Health CARES Consortium, an initiative funded through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Strengthening Community Colleges grant program. The Health CARES Consortium is led by Onondaga Community College and includes 11 SUNY community colleges, including Herkimer College. CARES stands for “Career, Acceleration, Retention + Employment Support.” The goal of the consortium project is to increase the health care and social-assistance workforce in New York state.

Cuda was most recently a science tutor at Herkimer College, as well as a teaching assistant for biology at Clarkson University. She also previously worked at the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce, where she gained experience in event planning, public relations, marketing, and social media.

Cuda holds a master’s degree in health administration from Utica University, and two bachelor’s degrees from Clarkson University — one in biomolecular science with a minor in biology, and the other in chemistry.
