“The excitement, glitz, and energy of the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort will be on display for the students of SUNY Canton,” states Randy Isham, Director of Table Games.

“We feel that college students would be a great fit for table games because it’s fast paced and exciting,” Sheila Jacobs-King, Director of Organizational & Tribal Development added.

Based on student interest, a dealer skills training course will be offered at SUNY Canton starting Feb. 15 and running through May 3.
