Celebrate the Success of SUNY Canton Graduates

SUNY Canton graduate medallion

Funds from the Celebrate the Success of SUNY Canton Graduates campaign benefit the Canton Fund and Canton College Foundation scholarships. Each graduate receives a commemorative medallion enclosed with a special message from a SUNY Canton alumni or friend at Commencement.

The words of congratulations, praise, and encouragement from alumni like Stephen Lamont ’66, reassure our students that they will forever be a part of the SUNY Canton family even after they leave campus.

Please help us continue this tradition by writing a personalized message to a graduating senior. Forging a connection between our students and our alumni is vitally important to the future of SUNY Canton.

You don’t have to make a gift to send a message to a graduate, but know that a gift of any size makes a world of difference to our students.

Good things happen when you make a gift to SUNY Canton.

Stephen Lamont


Congratulations! May this milestone in your life always be remembered with joy and pride. I graduated in 1966 and still look back on my time at Canton as special. My success in life went far beyond my expectations after graduation. May you look back 50 years from now and credit Canton with helping your life be one filled with purpose, challenge and rewards.

- Stephen Lamont '66

When I received the medallion, I was reminded of the past four years and of everything I had been through, everyone that had helped me and what it really meant to be a Kangaroo.
