CANTON – Canton-Potsdam Hospital’s E.J. Noble Guild recently awarded two newly-created scholarships to a pair of North Country students attending SUNY Canton.

“The E.J. Noble Guild at Canton Potsdam Hospital recognizes the importance of nursing education and the need to have well-trained nursing professionals in the North Country,” said Judy Chase, Treasurer of the E.J. Noble Hospital Guild. “To move beyond simple recognition, we have decided to make a donation to further the goals of the college and of the hospital.”

Annually, two SUNY Canton students will be awarded $1,250. The inaugural awards were received by Christina Harman of South Colton and Megan Macauley of Ogdensburg.

The scholarship was created in support of the Maresca Challenge, which was initiated by Dr. Michael and Barbara Maresca of Hannawa Falls to increase overall support of the SUNY Canton Nursing Program and its students.
“These scholarships help us in seeking to alleviate the nursing shortage that we are experiencing locally and throughout our state,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “We deeply appreciate the E. J. Noble Guild of the Canton-Potsdam Hospital and their support of the Maresca Challenge and the SUNY Canton Nursing Program,” 

The Maresca Family Challenge has now raised more than $200,000 for nursing scholarships. That total includes the Maresca’s original pledge of more than $100,000, a pledge of $25,000 from Canton-Potsdam Hospital, $25,000 from the Massena Memorial Hospital Foundation, and $5,000 pledges from the Kinney Drugs Foundation, 48th District Senator James Wright and the Development Authority of the North Country. 

SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs, as well as three master’s degrees in conjunction with SUNYIT, Utica. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 100 courses online each semester. The college’s athletic teams belong to the NAIA’s Sunrise Conference, enabling students to compete in their respective sports for four years.

Blevins Family Creates SUNY Canton Scholarship

Thursday, April 17th, 2008
Blevins Family

BLEVINS DONATION – The Blevins family has created a $25,000 scholarship endowment at SUNY Canton in honor of Leland Blevins. Pictured are (l to r) Assistant Director of Alumni Relations Elizabeth Irvine, Mike Blevins, Dave Blevins, Alumni and Development Associate John Wilson Jr., and Lynn Blevins.

A successful family of highly-respected North Country car dealers have created a scholarship that will honor their father and help generations of SUNY Canton Automotive Technology students.

“We are dually honored because the Blevins are a true North- Country family and are closely intertwined with the college,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy.

The Blevins family donated $25,000 for the Leland Blevins Scholarship Endowment. Each year an incoming automotive student will be awarded a scholarship in Leland’s name.

“Dad gave us our start in the automotive business, so it made sense for us to honor him by presenting others with an opportunity to enter the industry,” said Dave Blevins, who is a 1972 graduate of SUNY Canton.

Dave, and his brothers, Paul, Duanne, Lynn (class of 1979); three sisters, Sherry, Connie, and Beth; decided that the endowment would be a wonderful tribute to their father, who passed away last spring.

“I know Mom (Rita Blevins) is pleased that we’ve created this scholarship in Dad’s name,” Lynn said. “Over the years our businesses have benefited greatly from the hands-on training the college has provided our employees. I know all of the dealerships in the area appreciate the fact that it’s done here locally.”

Leland started the first Blevins dealership in Potsdam in 1969. He sold it to sons Paul and Duane in 1980. Dave and Lynn started the Ogdensburg Blevins Brothers in 1983. Blevins Ford in Gouverneur was added in 1990, and Team Blevins of Gouverneur was unveiled in 2006. The Potsdam dealership is run by Paul’s son, John.

Leland’s grandson Mike also graduated from SUNY Canton in 1999. Like his father Dave, he was an Engineering Technology major. He is now the sales manager for Team Blevins in Gouverneur.

Lynn’s daughter Leanne is a Nursing major at SUNY Canton and is expected to graduate in 2009.

SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs, as well as three master’s degrees in conjunction with SUNYIT, Utica. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 65 courses online each semester. The college’s athletic teams have joined the NAIA’s Sunrise Conference, enabling students to compete in their respective sports for four years.

Associate Professor Steven V. Gilbert, Ph.D., recently awarded a brand new scholarship for Criminal Investigation students.

Gilbert personally funds the competitive $500 Gilbert Forensic Science Scholarship, which will be awarded to the student who best researches the field of forensics. “I’ve created an annual poster presentation that will allow students to present their research using both graphics and narratives,” Gilbert said.

Criminal Investigation students were invited to submit their research in the academic poster format that Gilbert will judge. Meg Boyer of Penfield received the first of the competitive awards.

“There have been a large number of advances within this field,” Gilbert said. “Many students are already researching these advances to complement their studies.”

In addition, Gilbert recently facilitated another annual scholarship in memory of Flora Bertram Geller, which is awarded to an Alpha Phi Sigma National Criminal Justice Honor Society student. The inaugural recipient was Sindy Afriat of Chase Mills.

“This scholarship was established to award a student who has demonstrated a strong background in ethics and motivation within the Omega Upsilon chapter,” Gilbert said. “Sindy is the first recipient of this $200 scholarship, which is awarded annually at the Criminal Justice Honor Society induction ceremony.”

Afriat is the president of the Criminal Justice honor society and previously received the Leon and Rachael Bagley Endowed Scholarship through the SUNY Canton Foundation.

Gilbert said that the donors of the scholarship funding wished to remain anonymous.

SUNY Canton Associate Professor Establishes Scholarship

Monday, November 26th, 2007

A SUNY Canton Associate Professor has created a scholarship for students in the Criminal Investigation Program.

Each Year, Steven Gilbert will award $500 to a student based on the top investigative forensic science presentation. Specifically, students will be invited to submit presentations on “How Forensic Science Contributes to a Safer Society.”

“Many of our Criminal Investigation students are very interested in forensic science and interested in pursuing a career in crime scene investigation,” Gilbert pointed out. “The Gilbert Forensic Science Scholarship will help encourage students to continue research within this field.”

Gilbert, who has his doctorate in criminal justice, said that recent advancements within the field of DNA testing have dynamically changed investigations and forensic sciences.

The first scholarship will be awarded in Spring 2008 with following scholarships each Fall Semester. “The students’ presentations will also help inform the campus community about the changes and evolutions within our program,” Gilbert said.

Previously Gilbert has mentored students overseas who could not afford college, and was instrumental in beginning the Omega Upsilon chapter of the Criminal Justice Honor Society.

He created the scholarship through the SUNY Canton College Foundation which annually awards nearly $300,000 in scholarship assistance.

SUNY Canton Foundation Assets Rise Nearly 40 Percent in 2007

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

MAKING CONNECTIONS - (l to r) Longtime SUNY Canton Donor Rachael Bagley laughs with Kareen Bedford, a Nursing student from Ogdensburg, who received the Leon and Rachael Bagley Endowed Scholarship.

A remarkable increase in assets of nearly 40 percent has enabled the SUNY Canton Foundation to award a record number of scholarships this year. Foundation assets have surpassed $14 million, an increase of nearly $4 million from last year’s total.

The increase was most evident last week, when approximately 200 scholarship recipients attended the Foundation’s Scholarship Luncheon with scholarship donors and college officials. Nearly $300,000 in scholarship assistance was represented at the luncheon. This year’s event saw not only the largest number of scholarships, but also the largest total dollar amount awarded in college history.

MEETING DONORS - (l to r) Rebecca Trythall, a Veterinary Science Technology Student from East Syracuse, enjoys her lunchtime conversation with Professor Emeritus Varick Chittenden. Chittenden, who is also a SUNY Canton Distinguished Faculty Member, established the Chittenden Book Scholarship.

“We are extremely fortunate to have so many wonderful alumni and friends who believe in the ongoing success of our students,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “Their investment in our college benefits our students, the college, and the entire North Country. Many of these bright scholars would not otherwise be able to afford a college education.”

Students from almost every curricula at the college received a scholarship this year. “The Scholarship Luncheon is a special event where scholarship recipients are able to meet the donors who have so dramatically impacted their lives,” Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach said. “It’s often an emotional experience for both the recipients and the donors and it reinforces why we work so hard to make these scholarships possible.”

HEARTFELT GRATITUDE - Jacob Neely, a SUNY Canton Air Conditioning Engineering Technology student from Baldwinsville expresses his heartfelt thanks to SUNY Canton Patron and Alumnus Joel Canino for creating the scholarship that will pay for his entire college education. Neely said, "You've changed my life."

The Foundation’s total assets have grown by more than $9 million, or more than 280 percent since 2001. The growth in assets is a result of an increase in giving as well as investment growth and interest. The Foundation supports a variety of endeavors.

“Scholarships are just one of the outlets of Foundation expenditures,” Gerlach said. “The College Foundation also supports continuing education for faculty and staff members in addition to funding research and campus enhancement initiatives. The benefits are far-reaching and dramatic.”

The Foundation primarily uses donations to help defray the continually-increasing cost of higher education. Over the last several years, the Foundation has re-invested $7 million to fund college programs and initiatives. Many of the new highly-visible initiatives come in the form of scholarships, assistantships, or in a variety of ways that positively effect students’ overall college experience.

Alumnus John Halford Honored as SUNY Canton Hometown Hero

Friday, September 28th, 2007

John L. Halford of Gouverneur, has joined the growing group of SUNY Canton Alumni to be honored as a Hometown Hero.

Halford joins the prestigious list of Hometown Heroes by setting up a program to award SUNY Canton scholarships to students from his high school alma mater.

The John L. Halford Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually to two graduating Gouverneur Central School seniors planning to pursue a four-year degree at SUNY Canton. He has established a charitable remainder trust and donates annually to fund the scholarships. All of the proceeds of his trust will ultimately and permanently fund this effort.

“John has been an extraordinary benefactor of both SUNY Canton and Gouverneur Central High School throughout his life,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “John’s commitment to students serves as an inspiration to high school seniors from Gouverneur and to many other alumni and friends of SUNY Canton who want to create opportunities for the youth of their hometowns.”

John Halford created this scholarship to remember and honor the wartime service of his family. At the young age of 17, he joined the Marine Corps and served in the Pacific Theater. After more than 4 years of service, he returned to Gouverneur to complete high school. The abrupt end to his carefree youth taught him to appreciate and enjoy every day and the pleasures and opportunities life presents. His hope is that this scholarship will inspire young people from his hometown to continue their education and strive for their highest dreams.

Each recipient of the Halford Memorial Scholarship will be selected based on academic achievement, involvement in extra-curricular activities, and financial need, as determined by the Gouverneur Central School Scholarship Committee. The scholarships will be announced at graduation and students will be eligible to receive the scholarship until they complete their four-year degree.

“The best thing about this gift is not the gift itself,” Halford pointed out. “More important are the opportunities it will create by enabling these students to attend college. I hope that each student takes this opportunity to live life to the fullest, enjoy learning, and be successful. Gouverneur High School and SUNY Canton helped make that possible for me.”

Halford is the third alumnus to be honored as a “Hometown Hero” at SUNY Canton. He joins Joel M. Canino, who created a scholarship for Baldwinsville area students, and Bernard C. Regan, who targeted his endowment for Massena area students.

In 2005, Halford was honored for his record of service to the college by having a lobby named after him, at the crossroads of three major buildings.

He graduated from the Air Conditioning Engineering Technology program in 1949. From 1952 to 1970, he worked for Associated Universities on Long Island in research and nuclear reactor development at Brookhaven Lab. From 1973 until his retirement in 1987, he was the building maintenance manager for Suffolk County. He and his wife, Nelta, live in Gouverneur.

Massena’s Bernie Regan Becomes a Hometown Hero

Saturday, September 15th, 2007

A gift benefiting students from Massena Central High School and SUNY Canton has prompted college officials to create a program called “Hometown Heroes.”

Long-time SUNY Canton benefactors Bernard C. and Jane Regan have added to their already established Bernard C. Regan Family Endowed Scholarship and turned its focus toward Bernie’s high school alma mater in Massena. The total endowment of the Regans’ scholarship now exceeds $62,000.

The Bernard Creighton Regan Family Scholarship will be awarded annually to a freshman or returning student in SUNY Canton’s Electrical or Air Conditioning Engineering Technology program who has financial need and strong academic potential. First preference shall be accorded to students from Massena Central High School, with second preference to students from St. Lawrence County. The college is now encouraging alumni from other areas to establish similar scholarships for their hometown high schools.

“The scholarship established by Bernie has inspired us to create Hometown Heroes,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “It’s a program that allows alumni to help students from their hometown by awarding them a scholarship to attend SUNY Canton. In doing so, these alumni truly do become Hometown Heroes.”

Bernie Regan graduated from SUNY Canton’s Electrical Technology program in 1965. He served in the U.S. Army from 1965 to 1971 and later worked for United Parcel Service (UPS) in the company’s corporate domestic and international engineering group. In addition to establishing the Bernard C. Regan Family Endowed Scholarship, the Regan’s also donated the funding for the Regan Flag Station, which graces the entrance to the college.

The Regan’s gift follows a similarly designed scholarship created by Joel M. Canino for Baldwinsville’s C.W. Baker High School students.

Bernie Regan is a native of Massena. The Regans now reside in Sarasota, Florida.

“I was so fortunate to attend both Massena High School and SUNY Canton,” Bernie said. “I’ve benefited immensely from my experiences and education at both schools and wanted to honor them simultaneously with this scholarship. For me, it connects the two schools that so positively influenced my life and now it allows future students to take advantage of the same opportunity.”

The Regans latest gift will become part of the college’s Centennial Campaign which has set a goal to raise $10 million by 2010.

“Bernie and Jane’s generosity will enable students from Massena to attend SUNY Canton and receive a career-oriented, hands-on education,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “Hometown Heroes is a wonderful program that we hope many alumni help us to expand to their high schools and assist students from their hometowns.”

Massena Central School Superintendent Douglas Huntley said, “On behalf of the current and future students at Massena High School, I’d like to thank Bernie and Jane Regan for thinking of us while establishing this scholarship. The Regan Family Scholarship will enable and empower students to continue with their education and have a dramatic impact on the rest of their lives. They really are Hometown Heroes.”

Massena Memorial Hospital Commits $25k to Maresca Challenge

Monday, September 10th, 2007

The Massena Memorial Hospital Foundation has added $25,000 to the growing pool of donations assisting nursing students at SUNY Canton. The gift is part of the Maresca Family Challenge, a scholarship endowment established by Dr. Michael Maresca and his wife Barbara, which has now raised more than $170,000 in donations.

JOINING THE MARESCA CHALLENGE —The Massena Memorial Hospital Foundation generously donated $25,000 to the Maresca Family Challenge created by Dr. Michael and Barbara Maresca for SUNY Canton Nursing Students. Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy, Massena Memorial Hospital CEO Charles F. Fahd, II, Barbara and Dr. Michael Maresca, Foundation Board Member Helen Murray, and Massena Memorial Hospital Foundation Board President John A. Murray.

Charles F. Fahd, II, Chief Executive Officer of Massena Memorial Hospital, presented SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy with a ceremonial check from the hospital foundation on Sunday at a reception at the Maresca’s home in Hannawa Falls.

“The majority of our nurses are SUNY Canton graduates, and we just hired six more in June after graduation.” Fahd said. “As part of the Maresca Family Challenge, this gift is designed not only to assist nursing students, but to improve the quality of health care in the North Country.”

Approximately 100 people attended the reception this weekend. The Maresca Family Challenge also received several private donations at the reception, increasing the money raised to continue building the Maresca Family Endowed Scholarship for Nursing students. That total includes the Maresca’s original pledge of more than $100,000 and a pledge of $25,000 from Canton-Potsdam Hospital.

Also, 48th District Senator James Wright spoke at the reception and pledged $5,000 on behalf of New York State to help address the growing national shortage of nurses.

“I congratulate and commend the Maresca Family for their outstanding initiative, leadership, and commitment in making a difference in the quality of health care in the North Country and the lives of nursing students,” Senator Wright said. “This scholarship will help us in seeking a solution to the nursing shortage that we are experiencing locally and throughout our state.”

SCHOLARSHIP PARTNERS — Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy, Dr. Michael Maresca, and 48th District Senator James Wright at a reception announcing Massena Memorial Hospital's $25,000 donation and Wright's $5,000 state pledge to the Maresca Family Endowed Scholarship for Nursing students.

When the Marescas announced their gift in May, they challenged college alumni, local businesses, community members, and friends to join them in supporting the educational needs of future nursing students at the college.

“Nurses are one of the most critically important people in modern health care,” Dr. Maresca said. “When I work with a patient they seldom remember me, but they always remember how well the nurses treated them.”

Several current SUNY Canton Nursing Students attended the event, including two of this year’s scholarship recipients. All of the students personally thanked the Marescas for initiating the challenge. Their gift, along with securing the matching donations, will help ensure that future students receive a top-quality SUNY Canton education in the most economically feasible way possible.

SUNY Canton Future Veterinarian Receives Three Scholarships

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

A SUNY Canton student who hopes to become a veterinarian has secured enough scholarships to completely finance her final year of college.

Jessica Cornell of Henderson recently received $1,000 scholarship from the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. She also received a $4,350 Allan P. and Catherine Barnett Newell Endowed Scholarship and a $1,000 North Country Scholarship. Combined, the three scholarships have paid for her final year in the Veterinary Science Technology program.

“Jessica is a great example of the success of the SUNY Canton Foundation,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “I am quite confident that this support will benefit her far beyond her college studies.”

Cornell said it has been hard coming up with the money to attend college. The 26-year-old animal lover had already earned a four-year degree when she decided to follow her dreams. “I’m working toward my second degree and I really want to become a veterinarian,” Cornell said. “It was a good decision to go back.”

She is a member of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society, lauding students for high-academic achievement while promoting leadership and community service.

The SUNY Canton Foundation recommended Cornell for the Coca-Cola scholarship, and she wrote an essay last semester during finals week. The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation contributes $400,000 annually for students like Cornell, who demonstrated both academic success and participated in community service and outreach initiatives.

The SUNY Canton Foundation also linked Cornell with the Allan P. and Catherine Barnett Newell Endowed Scholarship, which is given annually to a second-year North Country student from the area who demonstrates financial need. Allan and Kate Newell were selected as dual recipients of SUNY Canton’s distinguished citizen awards at SUNY Canton’s 99th Commencement Ceremony for their noted philanthropy.

The Newells also made a significant gift to the college in 2003 through the Sweetgrass Foundation, which helped construct the Newell Veterinary Technology Center, where Cornell attends the majority of her classes.

SUNY Canton Receives Scholarship Gift of Nearly $1 Million

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

For the second time in less than three years, SUNY Canton Alumnus Joel M. Canino has given his alma mater one of its largest donations in college history. Recent Baldwinsville C.W. Baker High School graduate Jacob M. Neely will be the first to benefit from Canino’s gift. Neely will receive $25,000 in scholarship assistance over the next two years, as a student in SUNY Canton’s Air Conditioning Engineering Technology program.

Pictured are Jacob M. Neely of Baldwinsville and SUNY Canton Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. Neely will receive $25,000 in scholarship assistance established by SUNY Canton Alumnus Joel M. Canino and his friend, George F. Dennison.

Canino, who gave the college a $2 million gift in December of 2004, and his former high school classmate George F. “Fred” Dennison have donated nearly $1 million to create the Baldwinsville High School Class of 1957 Endowed Scholarship. The donation will provide scholarships to incoming SUNY Canton students from Charles W. Baker High School near Syracuse, formerly known as Baldwinsville High School where Canino and Dennison attended.

“This is an extraordinary gift that will result in about $50,000 in scholarships on an annual basis,” said Vice President for Advancement Dave Gerlach. “It’s a wonderful and innovative way for Joel and Fred to honor their friendship, recognize their high school, and support the SUNY Canton curriculum that laid the foundation for Joel’s business success.”

Two students from C.W. Baker High School will each be awarded approximately $12,500 annually to attend SUNY Canton and enroll in its renowned Air Conditioning Engineering Technology associate degree program. Canino is a 1959 graduate of that program.

“Fred and I wanted to express our gratitude and commitment to the schools and communities in Baldwinsville and Canton,” said Canino. “We’re grateful that Baldwinsville High School and SUNY Canton helped to prepare us so well for our careers, and we wanted to further reinforce our belief in the importance of a hands-on education and the careers available to those who graduate from them.”

Neely graduated from C.W. Baker High School this past spring. He was a member of the National Junior Honor Society and a varsity lacrosse player. He will begin his studies at SUNY Canton this fall.

“I am in complete awe of this experience,” said Neely. “I really appreciate not having to go into debt for college. I hope to give every penny back to SUNY Canton someday.”

Neely researched the Air Conditioning Engineering Technology program prior to applying for the scholarship assistance, and was surprised by the number of students who receive multiple job offers while they are still taking courses. “I’d heard of the near 100 percent job placement upon graduation, and I would really like to do the same thing that Mr. Canino did.”

In a particular year that may only have one eligible student entering the Air Conditioning Engineering Technology program from C.W. Baker High School, the second scholarship offered will be a $5,000 award given to a C.W. Baker student enrolling in any SUNY Canton curriculum.

“Joel used his SUNY Canton degree to reach the top of his industry, and he’s now helping others do the same,” said President Joseph L. Kennedy. “He’s an ideal alumnus because he helps us in so many ways, including his time, advice, and expertise.”

Canino shares his professional expertise as a member of the Air Conditioning Engineering Technology Advisory Committee and as Chair of the Canton College Foundation Board of Directors.

After graduating from college, Canino worked as an industrial purchasing agent for Inland Supply Company in Syracuse. He was soon noticed and just a year later he was offered a position at the Syracuse construction contracting firm of H.H. and F.E. Bean, Inc., where he eventually became executive vice president. In 1973, he moved to Orlando, Florida to work for the Pittsburgh-based mechanical contracting firm of Sauer Industries, where he served as president of various subsidiaries. In 1984, he became president of C.N.F. Industries in Meridan, Connecticut.

Canino and his partner began Gemma Power Systems in 1997. Gemma Power Systems has become the largest design/construct powerplant builder in New England and one of the top in the nation. The firm manages the engineering, procurement, and construction of multi-million dollar power projects. Canino sold Gemma in 2006.
