Engineer Oluwole McFoy: Always Be Prepared


October 25, 2012 - Oluwole “OJ” McFoy, COO of the Buffalo Sewer Authority, was the invited guest for the first Leadership Speaker Series of 2012-2013.


Mr. McFoy shared with the students a bit of his history through the journey to his current position at City Hall. Through interesting analogies, Mr. McFoy’s engaging talk impressed the students with the message of being prepared.


When asked how he got his current position, Mr. McFoy responded, “I say it’s by chance. But I had set the foundation and done the work. So when the opportunity came, I was prepared.”
