The mission of the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board is to improve the economic well-being of job seekers and employees in the Finger Lakes region. The goal of the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board is to increase the employment, retention, and earnings of participants, increase occupational skill attainment by participants; and, as a result, improve the quality of the workforce; reduce welfare dependency; and enhance the productivity and competitiveness of the region.
Beginning in March 2016, the Midlakes Graduates of Distinction Committee have chosen alumni of Midlakes High school who have “achieved distinction through outstanding accomplishments or lifetime achievements and sharing these with the collective community” (Graduates of Distinction, www.midlakes.org, 2019) to receive this accolade. Mr. John Mueller, co-owner of Willow Bend Farms and past Chair of the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board, Inc., has been named as a 2019 recipient.
Along with his leadership role in the FLWIB, Mr. Mueller has served on Dairy Promotion boards, as the past president of Ontario County Farm Bureau and currently serves as Chair of Trustees for the United Methodist Church of Clifton Springs. Mr. Mueller is also a member of the Farm Credit Customer Service Council and Cornell University Agriculture Advisory Board, all while growing Willow Bend Farms, which has been owned and operated by the Mueller family since 1960.
The Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board would like to thank Mr. Mueller for his guidance as past chair, past vice chair and member of the Executive and Performance and Evaluation committees – along with his invaluable donations of time and milk to the advanced manufacturing and skilled trades career exploration event, “Finger Lakes Works…with their hands!”. Congratulations, Mr. Mueller!
