In that light, we wanted to shine a light on how some of our WNY community business and institution leaders are doing to keep Buffalo working. Each of them brings their own unique insight on what challenges their industry is facing during the era of social distancing. Each week Yasmin Young will speak with business leaders from around the area to get a boots-on-the-ground look at how Buffalo is staying open for business--and how they are helping our community reopen.

Today Yasmin spoke with alumni from the Nativity Miguel Middle School of Buffalo to learn more about how they dealt with the coronavirus pandemic, and what their plans are moving forward.
