SUNY Canton Begins ‘50 Years on the Hill’ Celebration

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

SUNY Canton - 50 Years on the HillSUNY Canton officially began celebrating the golden jubilee anniversary of the hill campus.

College President Zvi Szafran announced the “50 Years on the Hill” campaign today, (Wednesday, Aug. 23) during his state of the campus address. Additionally, the college unveiled a special new logo to be used through 2018, marking its official anniversary.

“SUNY Canton’s modern identity has been defined by our growth and development during our 50 years on top of this hill,” Szafran said. “In 1967 we offered a handful of two-year programs for around 1,500 students. Today, we have 25 bachelor’s degrees, 21 associate degrees, and 5 certificate programs for more than 3,200 students. We are so proud to look at how far we’ve come, and we can’t wait to see what happens next.”

To announce the celebration, the college has released a new video incorporating found footage and images from the college’s history. The minute-and-a-half film features two of SUNY Canton’s past presidents, and SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher presenting Szafran with his ceremonial medallion. The video is live on the college’s YouTube channel and is accessible by visiting the college’s webpage, or its Facebook page.

“SUNY Canton has such a strong presence in the community and continues to make great strides in growing its academic offerings to help students get jobs,” Zimpher said. “My congratulations to the SUNY Canton community. There is truly much to celebrate.”

The college purchased new commemorative flags for display in downtown Canton. Travis G. Smith, director of public relations and web designer, created a responsive website detailing key moments in the college’s history and describing the new logo.

The college is orchestrating a special 50-year aerial photo and video at noon on Friday, Aug. 25, in front of French Hall.

Other upcoming events will include special athletic games, an expanded homecoming weekend celebration, an Alumni Weekend celebrating the class of 1968, and a campaign to recruit 1,968 donors in the next year. The college will also be highlighting fun facts from its half-century on the hill.

The college was originally chartered in 1906 as New York’s first State School of Agriculture at St. Lawrence University. It began to move to its current location and created its own identity in 1966 with the new name of Canton Agricultural and Technical College. Administrators held a grand opening ceremony on the new campus in September 1968.

SUNY Canton Remembers Distinguished Alumnus John L. Halford, Sr. (1925-2016)

Friday, December 9th, 2016

“I hope students enjoy their time at the college and use their experience to shape their lives.”

One of SUNY Canton’s most dedicated patrons has passed away.

John L. Halford, Sr., of Gouverneur, died December 7, 2016, at Maplewood Nursing Home in Canton. He was 91. A memorial service will be held in the spring.

“John Halford did a tremendous amount of good in this world,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “He served America in World War II, and served the communities that he lived in when he returned. He always wanted to help others, through his church, his town, and through funding scholarships and supporting his college. He will be sorely missed.”

Mr. Halford was born Jan. 24, 1925 in Gouverneur. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942 and served in the South Pacific attached to the 3rd Marine Raider Battalion and the 3rd Marine Division. He received an honorary discharge in 1946 and returned to graduate from Gouverneur High School in 1947.

SUNY Canton Distinguished Alumnus John L. Halford stands with President Zvi Szafran after the patron made a large donation in honor of the new president.

He then went on to graduate from the Agricultural and Technical College at Canton in 1949 with a degree in Air Conditioning Engineering Technology. Mr. Halford also took courses at St. Lawrence University, Hofstra University and Suffolk Community College.

Mr. Halford worked for the Gouverneur Hospital from 1951 to 1953. He was employed at Brookhaven National Laboratory from 1953 to 1970 as a technical specialist whose primary responsibilities were in the development of liquid containment materials for nuclear reactors. He then worked as maintenance supervisor for Suffolk County in the Buildings and Grounds Department from 1972 until his retirement in 1988.

 

A lifetime of commitment to SUNY Canton

Mr. Halford was a dedicated believer in helping students to achieve their potential. In 1989 he established an endowed scholarship at SUNY Canton that is given annually to five students who are in need of financial assistance. In 1999, Mr. Halford established a memorial scholarship to honor the wartime service of the six Halford brothers – all of whom served in World War II. This scholarship is awarded to two Gouverneur High School seniors who are planning to attend one of the four-year programs at SUNY Canton.

In a 2005 article for the After Canton alumni magazine, Mr. Halford said, “College is all about opportunities in life. A lot of young people don’t see a future, but I hope that with these scholarships I can help them see all of the possibilities that lie ahead for them.”

Mr. Halford had the distinct honor of being the alum with the most locations named for him on SUNY Canton’s campus. The college dedicated the John L. Halford, Sr. Lobby in 2005, Halford Suite in the Roos House in 2011, Halford Classroom in 2012, a Veterans Tree in 2014 and Halford Hall, which houses the CREST Center, in 2014. Mr. Halford also served on the Canton College Foundation Board of Directors since 2004.

Pictured are (l to r) SUNY Canton alumnus John L. Halford Sr., his wife, Nelta, SUNY Canton Acting President Joseph C. Hoffman and Michael J. Newtown, dean of the Canino School of Engineering Technology.

He received the college’s prestigious Distinguished Alumnus award at SUNY Canton’s 2010 Commencement Ceremony, was inducted into the college-wide Hall of Fame in 2011 and was inducted into the New York State Veterans Hall of Fame by State Senator Patty Ritchie in 2014.

Most recently, Mr. Halford gave a generous donation in honor of Dr. Szafran’s installment at SUNY Canton. The president’s father, Daniel Szafran, and the late patron became fast friends after their initial introduction.

Donations in Mr. Halford’s memory can be made to the Canton College Foundation.

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.

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.
