Limoges retired this month after working at the college for 35 years. Described by her colleagues as one of the most respected professional employees on campus, she is also admired for her incredible work ethic and commitment to SUNY Canton’s students, faculty and staff. Limoges graduated from SUNY Canton in 1980 and previously earned the college’s Employee Recognition Award in 2006.

“Kathy exemplifies the true meaning of professionalism and dedication,” said Szafran. “She has given so much to our college that it’s only fitting we recognize her many accomplishments with this award.”

Sieminski began his tenure at SUNY Canton in 2005 as the college’s public relations director where he managed branding and marketing efforts that contributed to an unprecedented increase in applications and enrollment. Since his appointment to athletic director in 2010, Sieminski has guided the college through its transition to NCAA Division III status. In addition to adding five new sports teams, Sieminski and his staff have more than doubled the number of student-athletes, hosted this year’s New York State High School Cross Country Championships and have hosted the Regional Special Olympic Games and time trials for three consecutive years.

Renee Campbell, an administrative assistant in the School of Business and Liberal Arts, was selected as the recipient of the SUNY Canton College Council’s 2013 Employee Recognition Award.

“I am in awe of the work, time and dedication put forth by Renee,” said Interim School of Business and Liberal Arts Dean Maureen P. Maiocco. “She is collegial, empathetic and friendly. Students often tell me how helpful she is when assisting with scheduling, explaining policies or just listening.”

Maiocco recalled when Renee set aside her day-to-day work to assist a non-traditional student in need of a schedule. The student was very nervous about returning to college. “We were short staffed that day,” Maiocco recalled. “Despite how absolutely busy Renee was, she took time to put this student at ease.”

She is widely known on campus for her compassion and concern for students, faculty and staff members. One of her co-employees described her as a unique and classy person who brings out the best in people.

“Renee is a breath of fresh air in our office,” said Kathy A. Limoges, a secretary who works alongside Campbell. “She is a great source of wisdom for implementing change and constantly improving our service to the students and faculty in our school.”

Campbell started at SUNY Canton in 2002 as an agency service representative in the Student Service Center. In 2005, she was hired in the School of Business and Liberal Arts. She was promoted to secretary 1 in 2008. She won the Women of the Year Award from the student-run Women’s Concerns Club in 2004.

Campbell is also a member of the Affirmative Action Committee at the College. She helps ensure that the College maintains its record of hiring a diverse and gender-balanced workforce.

“She has a commendable devotion to duty and her friendly attitude makes working at SUNY Canton more enjoyable,” said Charles R. Fenner, Ph.D., a professor teaching Business Management, who works closely with Campbell. “I can’t think of a more deserving person for this award.”

Renee is married to Tim Campbell. She has one son, Andrew; two stepdaughters, Kristen and Katelyn; and one stepson, Matthew.
