SUNY Canton Patron Helps Air Conditioning Engineering Technology Students

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

A World War II New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame inductee continues a tradition of donating to the college.

One of SUNY Canton’s most dedicated supporters has made a donation to assist students working toward careers in his major.

Gouverneur’s John L. Halford Sr. recently established an endowment to purchase modern equipment in SUNY Canton’s Air Conditioning Engineering Technology program. Halford is a 1949 graduate who launched his own successful career based on his education.

Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton alumnus John L. Halford Sr., his wife, Nelta, SUNY Canton Acting President Joseph C. Hoffman and Michael J. Newtown, dean of the Canino School of Engineering Technology.

“Careers in environmental systems continue to grow,” Halford said. “I wanted to help support students who are looking into the field.”

His contribution will be used annually to provide new tools and resources for students in the hands-on program. During the inaugural year, his contribution paid for approximately $25,000 in new technology. In subsequent years, the endowment will pay between $3,000 and $4,000 annually.

“We are genuinely proud of Mr. Halford and his commitment to the college and in the surrounding community,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “He has established a tradition of giving that has spanned more than 20 years. Most importantly, he truly wants to help area students to receive the best education possible.”

While he was visiting the college, students from the SUNY Canton Veterans Association thanked Halford for his generosity by planting a tree at the main intersection on campus. Halford is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who served in World War II.

Shortly following the tree dedication ceremony, State Senator Patricia A. Ritchie announced that Halford would be inducted into the area’s Veterans Hall of Fame. He was recognized at a special ceremony held May 15 at Fort Drum. He was then inducted into the New York State Senate Veterans Hall of Fame on May 20 at the State Capitol.

Ritchie noted Halford’s commitment to improving the lives of north country residents, especially through his work as a member of the SUNY Canton College Foundation Board of Directors. “I never expected this honor,” he humbly said.

Halford is distinctly proud of his military service. He served in the Raider Battalion that was part of the raid on Makin Island in the Pacific Theater during World War II. After his time overseas, he returned to Gouverneur, finished high school and went on to SUNY Canton, then known as the Agricultural and Technical Institute. The numerous plaques denoting his generosity at the college are inscribed with the U.S. Marine Corps seal.

In the past year, the generous benefactor sponsored two scholarships that provide 15 students with annual awards. Approximately five of those students are from Halford’s hometown.

“I hope students enjoy their time at the College and use their experience to shape their lives,” he said. “We have many good students in Gouverneur and I’d like to see them all go on to college.”

Halford holds the distinction of having the most places on SUNY Canton’s campus named in his honor. The college is home to the Halford Lobby, located at the entrance of the Faculty Office Building, the Halford Alumni Suite in the Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center ice rink, and the Halford Classroom in the Grasse River Suites residence hall. Another building will be named in his honor during the college’s Alumni Weekend Celebration on July 18.

He is also a member of the SUNY Canton Hall of Fame and was selected as the college’s distinguished alumnus in 2011.

SUNY Canton Steel Bridge Team Preps for National Competition

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Students from SUNY Canton’s engineering technology programs are slated to compete against teams from about 50 other colleges and universities at the National Student Steel Bridge Competition.

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American Institute of Steel Construction competition will begin on May 23 at the University of Akron in Ohio.

The SUNY Canton ASCE student chapter, commonly referred to as the steel bridge team, recently finished third in the Upstate Regional Competition. Their high-scoring entry earned them an invite to the next level of competition.

“The team picked up a couple of avoidable penalties at regionals,” said steel bridge team adviser Paul D. Hitchman, an instructional support associate in SUNY Canton’s Canino School of Engineering Technology. “With a little work they can continue to be competitive at the national level.”

The students were upset by their longtime rival École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) from Montreal, Quebec, and by SUNY Buffalo. The team has swept the competition 15 times in 18 years.

The team designed the scale-model bridge to be extremely light, while maintaining its structural integrity during weight testing. ASCE Student Chapter President Alyssa M. Baker of Boonville pointed out that the team did win first place in the lightness category.

“I’m very confident in our bridge and in our team,” Baker said. “We are going to make a few changes so we can place higher at the national competition.”

Baker is one of several Civil and Environmental Engineering Technology majors in the eight-student team.

The students placed fourth in construction speed, eighth in aesthetics, second in stiffness, seventh in economy and second in efficiency at the regional competition.

The bridge team is now seeking donations to offset travel costs for their trip to Akron, Ohio, which are estimated to be more than $7,000. To support the team, please contact the SUNY Canton College Foundation at 315-386-7127 or email foundation@canton.edu.

For more information about the steel bridge team, please read the April 21 article “SUNY Canton Students Aim to Build a Bridge Better, Faster and Stronger.”

SUNY Canton Students Aim to Build a Bridge Better, Faster and Stronger

Monday, April 21st, 2014

SUNY Canton students will be competing in the 2014 American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Upstate New York Student Conference and Steel Bridge Competition.

The conference will be held April 24 to 26 at Cornell University, Ithaca. It will be the 18th time that the College has entered a steel bridge in the competition. SUNY Canton’s ASCE Student Chapter, commonly known as the steel bridge team, has won the regional competition 14 times prior.

Bridge team members said this year’s bridge is much more complex than the previous year’s bridges.

“We were trying to make it as light as possible,” said Ethan J. Fregoe, an Engineering Science major from Massena. “There are three times as many pieces and three times as many bolts as last year’s bridge.”

Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton Steel Bridge Team members Andrew C. Walker of Camden and Ethan J. Fregoe of Massena tightening the bolts on their competition-ready bridge.

Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton Steel Bridge Team members Andrew C. Walker of Camden and Ethan J. Fregoe of Massena tightening the bolts on their competition-ready bridge.

The challenge changes each year and students must come up with a completely new design to compete. This year’s objective is to rapidly replace a timber railroad trestle over a river. The line is essential for transporting ore from a lithium mine for a battery production facility, necessitating rapid construction of a replacement bridge.

Codi D. McKee of Barker, a Civil and Environmental Technology major and vice president of the steel bridge team, said that the competition helped him apply his education with hands-on practice. “Sometimes things you work out on paper don’t work in real life,” McKee said. “The real challenge is to apply everything you’ve learned into something tangible.”

McKee and former bridge team president William W. Corbine III of Potsdam designed the bridge together during the fall semester. Corbine graduated in December, 2013.

Rules of the competition dictate that students design and construct a scale model of a bridge that will meet all of the rules for the competition. Entries are evaluated on stiffness, lightness, construction speed, display, efficiency and economy, according to steel bridge team advisor Paul D. Hitchman, an instructional support associate in SUNY Canton’s Canino School of Engineering Technology.

Hitchman recently received a letter from ASCE commending the SUNY Canton student chapter’s vast improvement through increased student activities, community service and student leadership. “The Chapter’s accomplishments reflect the enthusiasm and hard work of your student officers and members, as well as your fine guidance as faculty advisor,” wrote Leslie Payne, ASCE director of student and younger member programs.

In addition to Fregoe and Mckee, steel bridge team members include:

  • Nathan A. Archer, an Industrial Technology major from Canton.
  • Alyssa M. Baker, a Civil and Environmental Technology major from Boonville. Baker is the President of the student run club.
  • Michael Crowner, a Civil and Environmental Technology major from Gouverneur.
  • Gregory R. Denner, a Civil and Environmental Technology major from Ogdensburg.
  • Michael J. Verstraete, a Mechanical Engineering Technology major from Marion.
  • Andrew C. Walker, a Mechanical Engineering Technology major from Camden.

Dennis Tuper, an Automotive Technology instructional support associate and Paul P. Nasados, a Civil and Environmental Technology assistant professor join Hitchman as the steel bridge team’s advisors.
