RECENT TOPICS & HOW YOU CAN HELP
Bags of food are placed in children’s backpacks in the Waterloo School district on Friday so they have something to eat over the weekend when they don’t have access to school cafeterias. Extra bags of food are given over holiday times when they are out of school for several days. When children have good nutrition, they are better focused in school, get better grades, have more self-esteem and better health. One in five children in our area goes to bed hungry every night. Please do what you can to help. $20 will feed a child for a month, $200 will feed a hungry child for a year.Thanks For your generosity!
Mothers & Others / Geneva City Schools Clothing Drive
Accidents happen and often, students don’t always have a change of clothes available.
Geneva’s Mothers and Others group met with Geneva city school district nurse Kim Seidel to see how they could help kids in the district. Kim suggested donations of socks, underpants, and sweatpants. This way if one of the kids had an accident during the school day, they could get them cleaned up get them back to class. Otherwise, the children would be stuck waiting for their caretaker to get to the school with clean clothes.
You can help by clicking here for the Amazon WishList, and any items you purchase from the list will be given to the the nurses in the Geneva city school district!
JIM AND MARY IN THE MORNING
The broadcast “bug” bit Waterloo native Jim Schreck at an early age. Before he was even 10, a transistor radio was his constant companion. By age 16, Jim had a weekly radio show at the Hobart campus station WEOS, followed shortly by a part-time gig at WSFW in Seneca Falls.
During his college years, he was production director at two different radio stations and had part-time shifts at two others. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Geneseo State University, Jim went full-time at WSFW until it became a part of The Finger Lakes Radio Group in 2000.
At The Finger Lakes Radio Group, Jim has held a number of positions in News and Programming, eventually becoming Program Director and Morning Host on WFLR in Dundee from 2005 until 2008.
In 2008, Jim became Co-host on Mix98.5 and also serves as Production Director for the Finger Lakes Radio Group. Jim’s love of all things radio and music extends to his life outside the station, first as a collector of tube radios from the 1920s and 30s, and also as a multi-instrumental musician who regularly records and produces his own music.
Mary grew up with one goal (well, 2 goals if you count having a family). She wanted to perform on stage. She found a great release for that energy with Newark Players, Phelps Clifton Springs Community Theatre, Auburn Players, Seneca Community Players, and Geneva Theatre Guild. At the suggestion of a friend she decided to try her hand at radio. She received a degree in Radio and Television Broadcast Communications from Auburn Community College – and set out to be incredible (well, at the very least – adequate).
Mike and Mary In the Morning was a hoot, however, as her kids got older, she needed to find more time for the family (note the second of the 2 goals), so she took a bit of a break. The opportunity to come back to radio and reprise her role as “Mary” on the Jim and Mary Show has been a major WIN !!!
Mary loves cookies, spending time with her family (especially grandson, Harrison), reading, sewing, and napping… (not necessarily in that order)
SORAH DEVLIN NOON-5PM AND SATURDAY MORNING
Sorah was given advice by her father when she was a child: “Communication is the key to your success.” This has stayed with her for years, leading her to her interest in broadcasting. She graduated Waterloo Senior High in 2000, earning Theatre Arts and Liberal Arts degrees from Finger Lakes Community College in 2003. Sorah has been part of the Mix 98.5 on air family since 2008. When not behind a mic in a studio, she can be found behind one at home with freelance voice work, or playing with her two little ones, who received the same advice from her that she was given by their grandfather.
