SUNY Canton Dedicates Court for Former Men’s Basketball Coach Stan Cohen

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

A remarkable five-decade career of coaching and commitment to students is memorialized in the college’s athletic facility.

SUNY Canton will dedicate its main basketball court in honor of the late former men’s basketball coach Stanley W. Cohen.

“Our team today is full of bright young players,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “In fact, they are much like the dedicated, respectful alumni athletes who played for Mr. Cohen. It gives me pride to be able to make connections between our storied past and our great future. It is an outstanding tribute to a remarkable coach.”

Stan Cohen Court

The main basketball court in SUNY Canton’s Roos House has been renamed the Stan Cohen Court. The college will hold a dedication ceremony at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6.

A reception remembering Cohen will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, in the mezzanine area of Roos House Convocation Athletic and Recreation Center. The official naming ceremony will be held at halftime of the 7 p.m. men’s basketball game against Utica College. The college openly invites alumni, friends and the public to the event.

Pictured are former SUNY Canton men’s basketball coach Stanley W. Cohen and one of his standout athletes Robert C. Rogers. They were both inducted into the SUNY Canton Hall of Fame in 2011.

Alumni, athletes and friends of the college contributed the funding to the SUNY Canton College Foundation to secure the ability to name the court for Cohen, who is held in high esteem by former players, faculty and staff members, students, community members and peers.

Cohen led some of the most successful basketball teams in the history of the college and coached 10 players who went on to play at Division I colleges. Among those was Robert C. Rogers, who with his wife Margaret, made the generous lead gift to celebrate Cohen’s legacy.

“I had the privilege of touring our brand-new athletic complex with Stan and his former all-star student-athlete Bob Rogers,” said SUNY Canton Athletic Director Randy B. Sieminski. “You could see right away the remarkable bond and admiration the two men had for each other, even after all those years. Stan and his family are richly deserving of this incredible honor.”

Cohen, who was inducted as an inaugural member of the SUNY Canton Hall of Fame in 2011, began his career at the college in 1957 as a basketball coach and accounting instructor. His teams made the NJCAA national tournament in 1965 and secured three Empire State Conference Championships.

He eventually became the Athletic Director and added several sports, including hockey, wrestling, cross country, soccer and baseball. Under his leadership, the Canton Aggies were renamed the Northmen, one of the most iconic monikers in college history. He worked at the College for 39 years and was an integral part of SUNY Canton athletics until he retired in 1996.

The College Foundation is continuing to collect donations toward the court naming. Individuals who contribute will be commemorated on a plaque inside the Cohen Court. For more information contact 1-800-811-6727 or email rosserk@canton.edu.

SUNY Canton Alumna to Host Special Documentary Film Screening Dec. 3

Monday, November 21st, 2016

Lea-Ann BerstSUNY Canton will host a special test screening for a documentary film produced by alumna Lea-Ann W. Berst, class of 1982, titled “Pioneers in Skirts.”

The screening will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is free and open to the public; however, RSVPs are required to maintain the documentary’s film festival eligibility.

Berst’s daughter, Ashley-Maria Sullivan, directed the film and has been recognized by the Director’s Guild of America as a director who represents “the future of women in film.”

pioneers

“Pioneers in Skirts” explores the phenomena of why many women in the U.S. experience career burnout shortly after graduating from college. The film takes the viewer on a journey across the United States to meet successful women who found ways to overcome unique obstacles, such as UNC Chapel Hill’s Women’s Basketball Coach Sylvia Hatchell; Focus Brands Group President Kat Cole; MOZ CEO Sarah Bird; Major General Heidi V. Brown; and famed film and television actor/director Joan Darling.

“This is a film about solutions, change and empowerment,” said Sullivan. “It’s not acceptable for strong, educated young women to just ‘figure it out,’ generation after generation. It’s not acceptable for experienced professional women to suddenly lose all the energy they had when they started out.”

Berst is a business consultant and the owner of Sleddogg Marketing. Sullivan is based in Los Angeles. Both women were invited to Washington, D.C, to participate in the White House Summit on Working Families in 2014.

To RSVP, send an email to stopa@canton.edu or call (315) 386-7446. Current SUNY Canton students, faculty and staff are not required to RSVP. Both Berst and Sullivan will be available for questions immediately following the test screening.

More information on the film can be found at www.pioneersinskirts.com

Celebrated Native American Author to Speak at SUNY Canton

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

David Treuer

A professor and Ojibwe tribal member who has written extensively about the Native American experience will speak at SUNY Canton in November as part of the college’s Living Writers Series.

David Treuer, whose work has been published in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Esquire and The Washington Post, will speak at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is free and open to the public.

In his nonfiction book, “Rez Life,” published in 2012, Treuer examines Native American reservation life, past and present through research into issues like sovereignty, treaty rights and natural-resource conservation.

“David Treuer’s words in ‘Rez Life’ provide a beacon of light much like the North Star that references a navigational point for native and non-native people to traverse the perils that exist in Indian country today,” said Professor William T. Jones, SUNY Canton’s co-chief diversity officer.

The son of Robert Treuer, a holocaust survivor, and Margaret Seely Treuer, an Ojibwe tribal court judge, David is a 1992 graduate of Princeton University, where his thesis advisor was Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison. He has appeared on NPR’s “Fresh Air with Terry Gross” and PBS’s “The Tavis Smiley Show.”

“David Treuer is an internationally acclaimed voice in Native American literature and we are grateful to host him on the SUNY Canton campus,” said SUNY Canton Assistant Professor of English and Living Writers Series creator Phil K. LaMarche. “Please join us for the event to commemorate Native American Heritage Month.”

Treuer’s visit is co-sponsored by SUNY Canton’s Center of Diversity and Inclusion and made possible thanks to grant funding from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

“The Living Writers Series has proven to be a valuable asset to SUNY Canton and the community,” LaMarche said. “The NEA grant will help continue our mission of bringing a diverse group of creative artists and intellectual minds to our campus.”

The next Living Writers Series speaker will be Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tracy K. Smith, who will speak at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1.

The Tutoring Center in the Southworth Library Learning Commons was named in her honor, reflecting her lifelong support for learning.

“I’m proud to announce the Betty J. Evans Tutoring Center,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “This warm, friendly and supportive environment brings students together around learning. The peer and professional tutors do everything they can to help students excel in their courses. That’s the same thing that Betty Evans did every day of her teaching career.

Evans said that she had special memories of when her late son Perry attended SUNY Canton, and those recollections had lead her to offer her support. In addition to her recent gift, she endowed a scholarship in Perry’s memory, which is awarded annually to a student from an agricultural background.

“I have spent most of my life helping people decide what they will do with the opportunities they have,” she said. “My hopes are that the students will make good use of what is available here, and it is very apparent that they have already started. This is a beautiful and practical place.”

She said sponsoring the learning center was a good way for her to stay involved in young scholars’ lives. “I hope this is an example for others of how they can invest in the future.”

The SUNY Canton Tutoring Center is a hub of activity. It includes math, science, business and accounting tutors, and the college’s writing center. Peer and professional tutors provide help for students in a resource-rich environment designed to promote learning.

SUNY Canton College Foundation Helps Criminal Investigation Students Gain Real-World Experience

Monday, November 7th, 2016

The SUNY Canton College Foundation helped 20 students learn how to crack cold cases and unravel the mysteries of complex crimes.

The College Foundation recently contributed nearly $6,000, or about 75 percent of the cost for each student to participate in a two-day symposium with Laura G. Pettler, Ph.D., a noted authority on physical and behavioral evidence. Pettler is an expert on crime scene staging, or the manipulation of evidence to misdirect an investigation, according to Elizabeth A. Brown, Ph.D., an associate professor who teaches in the Criminal Investigation program.

Students and faculty from the SUNY Canton Criminal Investigation program stand with Laura Pettler, Ph.D., during a recent crime scene staging symposium. The advanced learning opportunity was partially paid for by the SUNY Canton College Foundation.

Students and faculty from the SUNY Canton Criminal Investigation program stand with Laura Pettler, Ph.D., during a recent crime scene staging symposium. The advanced learning opportunity was partially paid for by the SUNY Canton College Foundation.

The training was previously reserved for law enforcement professionals. It was offered to a college-level audience for the first time at SUNY Canton. “Students would not have been able to access this professional-level training without assistance from the College Foundation,” Brown said.

Pettler’s approach is geared toward modern police investigation and interview techniques and employs the scientific method to focus on examining crime and the offenders who commit the acts.

Crime Scene Staging Laser Analysis“When our students analyze crime scenes, either in class or in real life, they can never discount the idea that the evidence has been altered,” said Brown. “Dr. Pettler illustrated examples where the evidence had been moved to suggest something else had happened. Such manipulation could point to the wrong suspect or even make the case unsolvable.”

Students said that the symposium used actual police files to help them establish the nature of a crime. “We actually got to solve a case and determine whether it was staged or not,” said Marissa O. Woodworth of Malone. “This is exactly what I want to do when I graduate.”

SUNY Canton Vice President for Advancement Anne M. Sibley said funding the seminar was one of the many ways that the College Foundation supports students and the college as a whole.

“We were glad to be able to facilitate this real-world experience and career preparation for Criminal Justice students,” said Anne M. Sibley, vice president for advancement. ““Facilitating seminars, offering scholarships, faculty and staff development and campus enhancement awards are all ways that donor support helps advance the college’s mission.”

SUNY Canton SBDC Invites Businesses to Buy Local Matchmaker Event

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

America's SBDC - New YorkPurchasing officers from large businesses, industries, government agencies and prime contractors in St. Lawrence County are invited to see what the area’s small businesses have to offer at the 2016 Buy Local Matchmaker event.

Buy Local Matchmaker will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Nov. 16, In SUNY Canton’s Richard W. Miller Campus Center Room 212. It will be the third time the SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center has hosted a matchmaker event in St. Lawrence County. Previous events have resulted in numerous connections between local small businesses and purchasing agencies.

Matchmaking is like ‘speed-dating.’ Businesses sign up for 10-minute meetings with purchasing officers and have that short time to network and share marketing materials. When time is up, the business moves to the next agency. The hope is that agencies will learn about what is available locally, and a potential match can be made between supplier and purchaser.

Buy Local Matchmaker is co-hosted by the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce with generous sponsorship from Alcoa.

“In speaking with some of the larger businesses around the county, we realized that they are purchasing from neighboring cities or online – mostly because they don’t know what is available locally,” said Brooke Rouse, Executive Director of the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce. “We certainly have a tremendous amount of skilled, hard-working businesses right here. This event shines a light on that and creates personal relationships, which is how we like to do business in St. Lawrence County.”

Registration for the Buy Local Matchmaker is free for purchasing officers, but pre-registration is required.

“To attract a wide variety of local vendors it is necessary to have a full slate of purchasing officers committed to attend,” explained SBDC Business Advisor Michelle Collins. “Signing up early not only assures you will get one of the limited slots for purchasing agents, but will also help to attract a good selection of local small businesses for the best possible outcome for purchasers.”

For more information about the event, call the SBDC at (315) 386-7312, email sbdc@canton.edu, or visit www.canton.edu/sbdc.
