Patrick Heraty


Patrick Heraty, MS, MBA, first joined the CITRS team as a Coach/Mentor and Funds Manager of Western New York. His roles were to facilitate successful implementation of the Character Counts! Initiative in the Buffalo Public Schools; identify new schools that want to participate in the initiative; identify potential funding sources to sustain the CC!  - CITRS initiative.  Patrick believes that successfully implemented character-development programs will benefit our students in the character, social-emotional, and academic elements of their lives.  The skills and behaviors that the students develop will also provide long-term benefits to our communities and to future generations. He now serves as an advisor to the team.
