Corning Incorporated Foundation Promotes STEM Learning and Tutoring at SUNY Canton

Monday, February 8th, 2016

Corning Incorporated Foundation is helping SUNY Canton promote its science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs by contributing to the college’s annual Engineers Week and sponsoring a new student position at the college.

Corning Incorporated Foundation donation

The Corning Incorporated Foundation recently donated funding for SUNY Canton’s Engineers Week celebration and sponsored a tutor to help students with STEM related fields. Pictured are: SUNY Canton Assistant Professor Lucas Craig, Director of Tutoring Services Johanna M. Lee, Corning Inc. Processing Engineering Supervisor and 1997 Alumnus Kevin D. Logan, and SUNY Canton Director of Admissions Melissa Evans.

“We will be holding our second engineers week celebration in late February,” said Assistant Professor Lucas Craig Ph.D., who teaches in SUNY Canton’s Canino School of Engineering Technology. “One of the highlights of the event will be a engineering challenge designed for children grades 1 to 12. Corning has graciously sponsored the competition’s first place team with two $1,300 SUNY Canton scholarships.”

The entire event is designed to highlight programs in the college’s Canino School of Engineering Technology.

In an ongoing effort in support of STEM Scholars, Corning Incorporated Foundation also contributed the funding to create the college’s very first sponsored tutor position. The tutor is available to help students develop their career-building skills and provide academic assistance, according Johanna M. Lee, SUNY Canton’s director of Tutoring Services.

Daniel B. Geisenhof

Daniel B. Geisenhof, a SUNY Canton Mechanical Engineering Technology major from Newark Valley works with a Fanuc robotic arm in one of the college’s technology-focused labs. Geisenhof was recently hired as a STEM tutor with funding provided by the Corning Inc. Foundation.

“This is the first partnership we’ve ever had to promote tutoring on campus,” Lee added. “Our tutor will work closely with a Corning Inc. representative to develop a list of skills that are directly related to employment after college, which helps us continue our career-driven mission.”

The college has already appointed Daniel B. Geisenhof, a Mechanical Engineering Technology major from Newark Valley, as its first Corning STEM tutor. Geisonhof helps students in any of the engineering technology programs. He was also one of the students who assisted SUNY Canton Instructor Neil M. Haney with the design and fabrication of a lumber-processing machine, which later led to the faculty member seeking a provisional patent application.

“Higher education plays a critical role in not only helping to shape the minds of our neighbors, but also as a significant economic driver in the North Country,” said SeaComm President and CEO Scott A. Wilson. “SeaComm is committed to SUNY Canton’s mission and the essential work they provide in developing educated talent that we as an employer depend on to fill our human resource need. This perpetual SeaComm Financial Literacy Scholarship in partnership with SUNY Canton will ensure that resource is available for many years to come.”

The SeaComm Financial Literacy Scholarship is designed for a student who is majoring or minoring in Finance, Accounting, Business Administration or Management.

“I’d like to thank SeaComm for making this contribution and continuing our ongoing partnership,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “In addition to providing this scholarship, SeaComm has hosted internships for our students and has hired our alumni. The synergy between SeaComm and SUNY Canton has been fantastic, and I hope that our collaborative relationship continues for many years to come.”

Among other criteria, the scholarship will be given to a student who demonstrates his or her ability to balance college academics with community outreach, by sharing the financial knowledge learned in classes with the greater college and local community. This may be done through participation in the college’s newly created Financial Literacy Center, or a similar endeavor.

SUNY Canton Patron Challenges Benefactors with Donation

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

John L. Halford, Sr., ’49, continues a legacy of giving with a gift in support of the college’s fourth president.

A longtime and dedicated SUNY Canton patron has decided to continue his legacy of generosity by making a significant donation to the college, and challenging other alumni and friends to do the same.

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.

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.

Gouverneur’s John L. Halford, Sr., contributed an undisclosed amount to the SUNY Canton College Foundation in honor of President Zvi Szafran’s recent inauguration. Halford is a 1949 alumnus who has developed a friendship with the college’s new president and his family.

“Mr. Halford has really been a magnificent benefactor to SUNY Canton,” said Szafran. “His donation comes at such an exciting time for the college. To have people like him supporting us makes our growth and evolution especially meaningful.”

Before presenting his latest gift, Halford encouraged his friends and fellow donors to raise further funding for the college. He has promised to match all new gifts from up to 200 donors.

“I wanted to show my support for Dr. Szafran as he continues SUNY Canton’s growth,” Halford said. “I hope that others who share the same connection that I do will come forward to contribute to the college.”

Halford also visited the college to accept an award from students in the SUNY Canton Veteran’s Association. In October 2015, he made a donation to help the students create an endowed scholarship benefiting either a veteran or their spouse as they attend college. Halford is a proud World War II veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

By continually donating to the college, Halford has the most physical places named after him on campus. The Halford Lobby sits at the base of the college’s Faculty Office Building, the Halford Alumni Suite overlooks the ice arena and Halford Hall houses the college’s Career Ready Education and Success Training Center. Almost all of his donations are specifically designated to help students make the most out of their time at SUNY Canton.
