Class of 2017 Senior Spotlight: Ciera Cuddeback

Port Byron Central School District senior Ciera Cuddeback is ready to make her mark on the world.

This fall, the aspiring artist and Class of 2017 Top 10 member will begin her next chapter studying fine arts at Pratt MWP College of Art and Design, which is located at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, N.Y. Her future career plans focus on becoming a self-sufficient artist.

Ciera said her passion for art ignited during various high school art classes.

“It was the one subject where I didn’t have to worry about getting a good grade or studying for tests,” she said.

While attending Dana L. West Junior/Senior High School, Ciera was a member of Port Byron’s Drama Club.

“I’m going to miss the friends I’ve made in high school,” she said.

A Port Byron resident, Ciera is the daughter of Melissa McBride.

Port Byron CSD is pleased to announce the return of “Senior Spotlight.” This weekly website series highlights the accomplishments and future plans of several graduating Dana L. West Junior/Senior High School students. They were selected for the series based on their demonstration of excellence in the classroom and community.
