“I am particularly proud of all the fantastic faculty and staff that I helped hire and place during my time at the college,” Graveline said. “Many of those individuals have continued their careers and become thriving members of the campus community.”

Graveline started as a part-time Assistant Professor in the Math Department in 1980. She moved to a full-time position in 1981, was promoted to Associate Professor in 1988, and Professor in 1998. She served as chair of the Faculty Assembly and was an active member of the local and statewide United University Professions union.

She served as the dean of the School of Liberal Studies and Support Services and later as interim provost and vice president for academic affairs. Graveline received the prestigious Excellence in College Service Award in 2006 based on numerous nominations from the faculty and staff she oversaw and her peers. She retired in 2009 and continued on a part-time basis as associate provost for the remainder of the year. She was inducted into the college-wide Hall of Fame in 2016.

Smith was selected as the College’s Outstanding Baccalaureate Graduate, in partial acknowledgement of his outstanding missionary work. He was also the vice president of the Campus Ministries club and received a certificate of appreciation for his volunteer work from the Christian Fellowship Center in Madrid.

“Zach’s phenomenal mind gave him the extraordinary power to love and serve more people than most normally would,” said Yu Chin Cheng, an assistant professor and Smith’s adviser. “He is intelligent, diligent and honest.

He started college with the goal of graduating with a triple major. He has earned two associate degrees, one in Construction Technology Management and another in Business Administration.

After earning his Construction Technology Management degree, he started his own construction and contracting business.

SUNY Canton Distinguished Professor Emerita Nancy R. Auster

“I am very pleased that Professor Auster was recommended unanimously by the recognition and awards committee,” said Karen M. Spellacy, Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “Professor Auster was a pioneer for women in the entire SUNY System throughout her career. She was also an outstanding educator of the highest integrity.”

The 2013 Honors Convocation namesake was the first faculty member at SUNY Canton to win the Distinguished Faculty Award. She also helped another faculty member, Distinguished Professor Emeritus John R. Pope, create the College’s system of governance now known as Faculty Assembly. She was then elected as a Senator in the statewide SUNY Faculty Senate, the governing body that oversees the entire SUNY System.

Two years later, Auster was elected as the first woman and the first faculty member from a two-year college to become the President of the SUNY Faculty Senate.

Auster taught Economics in the Social Science Department for more than 25 years. She served in numerous leadership positions, including department chair for Social Sciences. She was also on the Affirmative Action Committee and active with United University Professions, the union representing members of SUNY Canton’s faculty and professional staff.

Among her numerous accolades, she was awarded the Distinguished Service Professorship award form the SUNY Board of Trustees and was honored with the United University Professions Excellence Award. Most recently, Auster was inducted into the SUNY Canton Hall of Fame.

Beyond her academic achievements, Auster, who is 86, is known in St. Lawrence County as a triathlete, duathlete and avid runner. She has completed more than 500 races and won U.S. Track and Field Women’s 5K titles for women in the age ranges of 80-85 and 85-90.

She is a 1948 Alumnus of Barnard University with a bachelor’s in American Studies. She was one of the first women to receive a Master’s of Business Administration from Indiana University in 1954. She moved to Canton in 1957 and taught at St. Lawrence University in addition to her career at SUNY Canton.

Auster resides in Canton with her husband, Donald R., who kept her company while she ran for many years. They have two daughters, Carol, who lives in Lancaster, Pa., and Ellen who lives in Toronto, Ont. Both followed in their parents’ footsteps and are professors. The couple has four granddaughters, Lauren, Lisa, Lindsey and Shannon.
