Name: La Toya Benton
I currently work as an administrative assistant at the Ithaca Youth Bureau, helping out with the recreational department programs and front office assistant.
When I was 15 years of age I was hired to be a finical clerk through the YES summer program for a company where I was to mange all clerical duties. After working my summer job with the YES program, the company I worked for decided to hire me. I worked there for 16+ years. I recently received an opportunity to work for the Ithaca Youth Bureau after those 16 years, and I am now currently working for the IYB as an administrative assistant. Funny how things can come full circle sometimes.
