Riverhawk Celebrates a New Citizen


Riverhawk employee Davor Kecan officially became an American citizen on May 18, 2017.
Originally from Bosnia, Davor came to Utica in 2010 with no understanding of the English language. After enrolling in ESL courses through the local BOCES, he was able to find a job as a machinist at The Light Connection in Oriskany. Davor, who was still new to the area and to our language, credits this position to teaching him English. “Everyone on my shift spoke English, so I didn’t have anyone I could rely on to translate for me. It forced me to learn fast, which was good,” he said.
Davor joined the Riverhawk team in March of 2015 as a Quality Inspector. His favorite part about working at Riverhawk is the people. “Everyone is friendly, helpful, and professional. I’m happy to be a part of the team,” he stated.
The team surprised Davor with an “All-American Barbeque” on May 24. Congratulations, Davor!
