The former First Lady of New York State, Matilda Cuomo, was back in Central New York on Wednesday to meet with school leaders.

The mother of Governor Andrew Cuomo met with local school leaders about her state-wide mentorship program as adults are paired with students for weekly one-on-one mentoring meetings.

The program, now world-wide, was started during the Mario Cuomo years and is back under Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo hopes many Central New Yorkers sign up to meet with local children on a weekly basis.
