Roberto Clemente’s Son to Speak at SUNY Canton

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Luis ClementeLuis Clemente, son of the late baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente, will speak at SUNY Canton this month as part of the college’s popular Living Writers Series.

He will discuss the life of his famous father, which is chronicled in the book “Clemente: The True Legacy of an Undying Hero,” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 24, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is free and open to the public.

Written by the Clemente family, the biography features exclusive, never-before-released photos of the baseball legend, who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1955 to 1972. Luis, along with his mother, Vera, and two brothers, Ricky and Roberto Jr., share personal stories, and anecdotes from Clemente’s closest friends are also woven throughout the book.

“It’s a great opportunity for the Living Writers Series to host Luis Clemente, and we hope that many from the campus and community will join us for this special event,” said SUNY Canton Assistant Professor of English Phil K. LaMarche, who created the series. “Roberto Clemente’s contribution to the sport of baseball and our culture as a whole continues to provide a powerful message.”

Renowned for his charitable endeavors, Roberto Clemente Sr.’s life was tragically cut short when he was killed in a plane crash while attempting to deliver aid to earthquake-stricken Nicaragua.

In addition to the book, the family is continuing his legacy through their work with the Clemente Foundation, which helps at-risk youth. Vera Clemente is also an official Goodwill Ambassador for Major League Baseball.

The Clemente family has ties to SUNY Canton. Luis’ son, Bobby, plays infield for the SUNY Canton men’s baseball team. In 2016 The Clemente Foundation partnered with SUNY Canton to host the first Clemente Cup, an NCAA Division III baseball tournament held in Puerto Rico where 10 collegiate teams from across the U.S. competed for the title. Between games, the SUNY Canton team held clinics for Puerto Rican youth, and tournament concessions were donated to local little league organizations. Plans are under way for a second Clemente Cup in 2018.

“I am extremely proud of all that was accomplished in the first Clemente Cup,” Luis said. “The economic impact, cultural exchange, competition level, recruitment opportunities, clinics and charity donations are proof that this event can benefit everyone involved – from collegiate teams to local Puerto Rican communities and organizations.”

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

Artist and Architect Jay Waronker Exhibits at SUNY Canton, Oct. 17

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Jay WaronkerWatercolorist and architect Jay A. Waronker will be displaying his vibrant depictions of synagogues in sub-Saharan Africa during an upcoming exhibit at SUNY Canton.

A reception with the artist will be held at 6 p.m., Monday, Oct. 17 in the college’s Southworth Library Learning Commons. The event is free and open to the public.

Waronker, who is a professor of architecture at Kennesaw State University, Ga., has created a portfolio of work by documenting dozens of functioning or former synagogues in Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Namibia, Mauritius,  Eritrea, Zambia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. He uses loose freehand drawing and watercolor techniques to create accurate architectural renderings of the historic locations.

“It may come as a surprise that there are countless active yet relatively unknown, or even unaccounted for, Jewish communities scattered around the globe in places away from the more commonly-associated and mainstream population centers,” Waronker said. “To people who often link Jewish life with certain identifiable places, these less familiar or even unknown enclaves may on the surface seem extraordinary and exotic, but in fact they represent places where Jews simply and freely settled and, in the diasporic tradition, organized and built synagogues.”

Synagogue in Africa

Waronker received his education at Cornell, Harvard, and the University of Michigan.  In 1990, he began the documentation and study of India’s forty synagogues, which led to various publications of his work.  Waronker has also extensively exhibited his watercolors throughout the United States and abroad, including Smithsonian’s International Museum of Art and Design in Atlanta, Skirball Museum in Los Angeles and the Graham Foundation Gallery in Chicago.

SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran, who worked with Waronker at his previous post at Southern Polytechnic State University, said he would like to start an Art Exhibit series at SUNY Canton.

Synagogue in Africa

“I’ve always been attracted to the way that Jay uses color to describe the wonderful buildings in his paintings,” Szafran said. “This will be a great start to a series of exhibitions where we can feature artists including our own faculty, staff and students.”

A similar exhibit and talk on Synagogues in India will be presented at 2 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Congregation Beth El in Potsdam.

New York Supreme Court Justice to Speak at SUNY Canton for Constitution Day

Thursday, September 8th, 2016
Judge Caruso

New York State Supreme Court Justice Vito C. Caruso will be presenting at SUNY Canton at 1 p.m. Sept. 16 in the Kingston Theater.

SUNY Canton and the Office of the St. Lawrence County Attorney will be hosting New York State Supreme Court Justice Vito C. Caruso for its Constitution Day celebration.

Caruso will be presenting “The Constitution, its Origins – and its Future” at 1 p.m. Friday (Sept. 16) in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is free and open to the public and parking will be available in Lot 7 near French Hall.

“The Constitution, just those thin sheets of parchment, is all that that stands between us and anarchy and tyranny,” Caruso said. “Democracy and self-government are risky, but the experiment begun by our Founders some 250 years ago has proven, time and again, that the people are capable of governing themselves, that they can be trusted with the reins of power – and that our constitutions, state and federal, protect our cherished freedoms and individual liberties from encroachment by the government and the mob.”

SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran noted constitutional issues have been prominent in the platforms and speeches of both presidential candidates, which makes its interpretations especially important for informed voters.

“The Constitution is the source of our rights and freedoms as American citizens,” Szafran said. “We are extremely fortunate that Judge Caruso will be sharing his knowledge and expertise to help our students, faculty and staff familiarize themselves with this formative document.”

St. Lawrence County Attorney Stephen D. Button expressed enthusiasm for the upcoming presentation.

“SUNY Canton affords the town of Canton and the surrounding communities of St. Lawrence County with wonderful opportunities to experience top-notch speakers with real world experience,” Button said. “St. Lawrence County is pleased to be a part of the program and welcomes Judge Caruso to the North Country.”

Caruso was elected to the New York State Supreme Court in 1994. He was appointed as administrative judge for the Fourth Judicial District in June, 2004. The Fourth Judicial District is comprised of 11 counties (including St. Lawrence County) and is the largest geographic district in the state.

He is a member of the New York State Bar Association, Schenectady County Bar Association, a board member of the New York State Greater Capital Chapter of the National Italian American Bar Association and a member of the Association of Justices of the Supreme Court.

Caruso is a past district deputy of the New York State Elks Association, along with being a past exalted ruler and trustee of the Rotterdam Elks Lodge. He is also a member of the Order of Sons of Italy, Lodge 321, the Rotterdam Knights of Columbus, a former volunteer firefighter with Rotterdam District 2 Fire Company and a former chair of the Schenectady County Republican Committee. Justice Caruso is proud to have been the first recipient of the Pro Bono Distinguished Service Award of the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York.

He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and Economics from SUNY New Paltz and began his legal career in 1973, serving as law clerk to Assemblyman Clark C. Wemple of Schenectady. He continued in that capacity until 1977, when he was admitted to the New York State Bar.

Constitution Day is celebrated Sept. 17, commemorating the 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution. SUNY Canton holds at least one educational program corresponding with that day annually. In the past, the college has run essay and poster contests, and run voter registration drives.
