SUNY Canton Commits $25,000 Scholarship For Claxton-Hepburn Employees

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Claxton HepburnIn support of Claxton-Hepburn’s next capital campaign, the SUNY Canton College Foundation has generously committed $25,000 in scholarship support to assist Claxton-Hepburn employees seeking a SUNY Canton Nursing or Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. This scholarship was established to encourage CHMC employees to continue their education and pursue higher levels of training in order to provide the highest level of care to the community.

Each fall for five years, five Claxton-Hepburn employees will be selected through an application process for a $1,000 scholarship to help them with tuition and other applicable educational expenses while pursuing a two- or four-year nursing degree. David Ferris, Chief Nursing Officer at Claxton-Hepburn, who received his Nursing degree at SUNY Canton in 1984 and teaches in the program today, commented “We are fortunate to have SUNY Canton’s nursing programs in our community. This scholarship program is a wonderful opportunity for our staff and we are excited to work with SUNY Canton.”

Since 1902 when the A. Barton Hepburn Nursing School was founded, and later through work with SUNY Canton, Claxton-Hepburn has been committed throughout its history to high-quality local nursing education. Claxton-Hepburn provides clinical experiences for SUNY Canton nursing students, and later employs many of them. The medical center also has a tuition reimbursement program for employees who return to seek higher degrees while employed. Claxton-Hepburn’s long connection with the SUNY Canton Nursing program also includes the service of Linda Fay, Professor Emeriti of Nursing at SUNY Canton (1972-2005), who is on the Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and the Claxton-Hepburn Health System boards.

SUNY Canton Receives Nearly $600,000 NSF Grant for Scholarships

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Over the next four years, SUNY Canton will receive a $596,160 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to be used for scholarships given to engineering technology students.

Dr. Lawretta Ononye, associate professor of physics, serves as the principal investigator and director of SUNY Canton’s project proposal. She is assisted by colleague Dr. Stephen Frempong, professor of electrical engineering technology and co-principal investigator of the proposal, as well as JoAnne Fassinger, the College’s grants coordinator.

“This is a monumental accomplishment for us as we continue to do everything we can to make college an option for all students, irrespective of their economic circumstance,” said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. “I thank the efforts of Dr. Ononye, Dr. Frempong and JoAnne for working as hard as they did over the last few years to make this a reality for SUNY Canton and our future students.”

SUNY Canton’s project, entitled “Scholarships for Engineering Technology,” will be funded through the NSF Scholarship for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) project. It will provide scholarships for 18 full-time students who have demonstrated superior academic performance but face economic hardships. An annual award of $7,200 for up to four years will help support the scholars through their degree completion at the College.

The scholarships will be awarded to students in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree or enrolled in a two-year associate degree program with plans of earning their four-year degree.

“A grant of this magnitude is an extraordinary achievement for SUNY Canton and brings us to a new level of grantsmanship,” said Fassinger, who noted that the NSF award is a first for the College. “Grants from the National Science Foundation are considered to be among the most prestigious and competitive in higher education. It is truly a sign of SUNY Canton’s tremendous growth in all areas.”

Programs at the College affected by the S-STEM project include electrical engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, civil engineering technology, engineering science and alternative and renewable energy.

“I’m very excited that the countless hours and energy we put into the proposal has paid off,” Ononye said. “This award will encourage all students to consider engineering, science and technology, including underrepresented groups and women.”

Frempong emphasized the S-STEM project is of great significance to SUNY Canton and its Canino School of Engineering Technology.  “It has both intellectual merit and broader impact,” he stated. “The funding will help with new support programs, including a mentoring program, STEM seminar, and a tutoring center. We will have the resources to develop a summer program to boost scholars’ physics and mathematics backgrounds. It will also allow us to offer field trips to local businesses and into industry.

“It will enhance the ongoing efforts at SUNY Canton by promoting retention and building a community of scholars,” Frempong added. “It will assist in the placement of students in the workforce or graduate school.”

According to NSF’s website, the S-STEM program “makes grants to institutions of higher education to support scholarships for academically talented, financially needy students, enabling them to enter the workforce following completion of an associate; baccalaureate; or graduate-level degree in science and engineering disciplines.”

Institutions receiving awards are responsible for selecting scholarship recipients, reporting demographic information about student scholars, and managing the S-STEM project on campus.

SUNY Canton Foundation to Increase Scholarships

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

The SUNY Canton Foundation has voted to increase the total amount of money it awards and the total number of scholarships it awards to students for the 2009-2010 academic year, despite the troubled economy.

The College’s Foundation Board recently decided to increase all existing giving levels and award a number of new scholarships to match the overall growth of the college.

“We realize it’s more important than ever to award these scholarships,” said Vice President for Advancement and SUNY Canton Foundation Executive Director David M. Gerlach (class of 1983). “Despite the economy, the decreasing state support, and the floundering stock market, we’ve decided to continue giving as much as possible to our students. It’s what our alumni and donors want us to do, it’s what many of our students need in order to enroll and be successful, and it’s the right thing to do.”

Several donors have recently given gifts to the College Foundation in an effort to offset the struggling economy, including Attorney Preston Carlisle of Ogdensburg, the St. Lawrence County Dental Society, the Canton-Potsdam Hospital’s E.J. Noble Guild, Barbara Burnham (class of 1941), the Thompson-Weatherup Foundation, Doctor Robert Saidel and his wife Rita Saidel (class of 1975), among numerous others. The decision ensures that the Foundation will increase its total scholarship awards for the 15th straight year.

“I think this is particularly significant given that other colleges have been forced to cut back,” said Gerlach. “It further accentuates the affordability and value of a SUNY Canton education.”

SUNY Canton Director of Financial Aid Kerrie Cooper noted that many students would benefit from the foundation directors’ resolve and is pleased with their commitment.

“This is good news for current and future students,” Cooper said. “It’s more important than ever that our students utilize all of the resources they have in order to pay for college, including Pell Grants, TAP (Tuition Assistance Program), Federal Loans, and Foundation scholarships. We do our best to make sure that students who want to attend SUNY Canton are able to do so regardless of their economic background.”

Cooper has been in frequent contact with the current and incoming student population to recommend upcoming scholarship opportunities both through the Foundation and external funding sources.

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.

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.

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.
