Three members of SUNY Canton’s University Police Department received the State University of New York’s Heroism Award.
Deputy Chief Alan P. Mulkin, Lt. Brian E. Kurish, and Officer Daniel V. Callahan were awarded alongside Canton Village Sgt. James Santimaw for saving a student’s life during the spring 2014 semester.
Through a coordinated effort stemming from a phone call from a student in distress, the four officers helped rescue a student from hanging and potentially drowning in the Grasse River.
Former Acting President Joseph C. Hoffman previously awarded the officers for their heroism at the SUNY Canton Recognition Day ceremony.
