From Group Home to Radio Show Host
Chavor was placed in the Mount Kisco Group Home in January 2007 at the age of 14. His mother had passed away shortly before he entered care and his father passed away while he was in care. Despite these tragic losses and other struggles he endured at an early age, he welcomed the support and guidance of the group home staff and took advantage of every opportunity he was given at the Mount Kisco Group Home. He was provided with counseling, independent-living training, academic support, and a nurturing home-like environment at Mount Kisco. He was also given the opportunity to participate in the AAU basketball league, where he learned values of teamwork and good sportsmanship. He graduated from Fox Lane High School in 2010 and attended Mohawk Community College in Utica for two years. He transferred to SUNY Cortland and will be graduating next year with a BA in Communication and Broadcasting. This past school year, he had his own radio show at the university, in which he discussed sports and music. He has obtained a paid internship this summer at LTG Marketing and Development. Despite the hardships and challenges he endured as a young boy, thanks to the support and guidance he received from Abbott House, Chavor is now focused on a very bright future in either broadcasting or marketing.
