Executive Director David Rust: Make an Impact

November 20, 2012 - David Rust of Say Yes to Education Buffalo visited BASCS students as the second invited guest for this year’s Leadership Speaker Series.


The primary focus of Mr. Rust’s time with the students was to inform them about the Say Yes Tuition Scholarship available to eligible students in the Buffalo Public School system as well as all city charter schools. Mr. Rust outlined the criteria for the program and answered questions from the 35 students who were in attendance at this session.


Mr. Rust also shared with the students a bit of his history from being a Buffalo native and going away to college through the journey to intern in Great Britain to his return to Buffalo and his current position at Say Yes Buffalo. Mr. Rust told students that he believed in service and volunteer work as important parts of a well-rounded education. He encouraged students to take advantage of opportunities that would enhance their lives. Mr. Rust’s parting message to students: “You can choose to make an impact with what you do in your life.”
