Four weeks of intense teamwork by 50 Central New York college interns on community service projects culminated Friday in a graduation and awards ceremony at SUNY Upstate. Five groups of ten students in this year’s Synergy program were given a topic of focus, did research, put on an event, and made final presentations.
