Massena Graduates Aid their Hometown by Helping Future Generations Attend SUNY Canton

Friday, October 18th, 2019

Several Massena Central alumni have banded together to help create a new future for recent graduates of their high school. With the very first recipient of the Massena Alumni Scholarship selected at SUNY Canton, the founding donors are now looking for further endowment support.

“Massena is an example of a great community that has lost its industrial base, leaving many students without funds to attend college,” said Alex Sabo, a scholarship patron.

White, Sabo and Boushie have created the Massena Alumni Scholarship for recent graduates of Massena Central High School to attend SUNY Canton.

While searching for a way to help his hometown, Sabo was encouraged by Canton College Foundation Board Member, alumnus and longstanding patron and fellow Massena Central alumnus Guilford ‘Gil’ White (SUNY Canton class of 1968) to create a scholarship. “We selected SUNY Canton because of its close proximity to Massena and also because it offers both two-year and four-year degree programs that meet the needs of more students,” Sabo said.

He was then joined in his effort by fellow classmate Raymond Boushie. In addition to individually funding scholarships, the group of donors has raised about a third of a $100,000 endowment.

“So far, we’ve all been Massena graduates from the 1950s,” Sabo said. “We’re trying to reach a wider group of people to support this endeavor, or even consider making a scholarship of their own. We think more Massena High School graduates will be inclined to attend college if financial support is available to them.”

The three donors’ initial efforts have generated an inaugural scholarship for Fall 2019. Frederick Dashnaw, enrolled in the Construction Technology Management program, received funding assistance for his freshman year. Dashnaw is a second-generation SUNY Canton student who aspires to become a building inspector.

 “This helped me achieve my plan to attend SUNY Canton,” he said. “I’d like to thank the donors who made this possible. I would definitely give back to this endowment after I’m out of college.”

SUNY Canton College Foundation Secures Midtown Plaza Purchase Option

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

A joint venture will allow SUNY Canton to move forward with plans to create an Entrepreneurship Center at the former Jubilee grocery store location in downtown Canton.

Roo Riverwoods, LLC, an affiliate of the Canton College Foundation, has secured a purchase option on the vacant midtown plaza properties currently owned by Garry L. Cohen. The agreement allows the foundation to conduct studies to determine if the properties are suitable for development. During the term of the option, Roo Riverwoods has the exclusive right to purchase Mr. Cohen’s properties or to assign them to a third party.

The facility would house the college’s Small Business Development Center and would include co-working spaces, private offices for rent, state-of-the-art conference facilities and event space. The Entrepreneurship Center would also include a makerspace with 3D printers and other high-tech tools available for public use. 

Project partners are exploring further funding opportunities that will enable the development of a mixed-use development at the site, which will include both commercial spaces and housing units.

“The Canton College Foundation is thrilled to be able to facilitate this project, and the board was solidly in support of this opportunity,” said Anne M. Sibley, SUNY Canton vice president for advancement, who signed the agreement with Cohen last Friday. “The potential benefits for the Canton community and SUNY Canton are tremendous. We look forward to further collaboration with other partners.”

This process was a collaborative effort between the Foundation, SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran, Village of Canton Mayor Michael Dalton and Town of Canton Supervisor Mary Ann Ashley. Also involved were representatives from Laker Development NY, LLC, which previously worked with St. Lawrence University to purchase one of its Main Street houses and develop the new Walgreens, and its partner, DEW Ventures, LLC.

“This project will bring new economic vitality and entrepreneurial activity to the heart of downtown,” said Szafran. “We all worked hard to make this a winning situation for everyone in Canton. We look forward to working with the developers and their teams to make this vision a reality.”

The redevelopment venture was included as a potential anchor project in the Village of Canton’s application for the $10 million New York State Downtown Revitalization Initiative. If the Village is selected, a portion of the funding may be devoted to the undertaking. Other funding opportunities will also be pursued. 

“This has been a long-term process and a very cooperative effort,” said Dalton. “The collaboration is going to yield great things for Canton. I thank everyone involved for their creative energy and hard work.”

SUNY Canton Creates New Botanical Nursery for College Alumnus and Area Farmer

Friday, December 14th, 2018

SUNY Canton has created a new garden area in honor of a stalwart and pragmatic area farmer who graduated from the college in 1954.

The Canton College Foundation recently announced that an area adjacent to the college’s Peace Garden had been retooled to house the Kenneth Theobald Botanical Nursery, following donations from the namesake’s family and friends. The area will be used to cultivate seedlings that will be transplanted to become part of the verdant campus landscape.

Rajiv Narula and Barbara Rich Wilder pose in front of the Theobald memorial rock.

The effort was spearheaded by Barbara Theobald Rich Wilder, a graduate of the class of 1953 and 1970, who serves on the College Foundation’s board of directors. She said she wanted to make a contribution in her brother’s memory and her family, 15 of whom graduated from SUNY Canton, rallied to support the effort.

“Ken was a modest man, a quiet man, but he had a vision and was always looking forward,” Rich Wilder said at an event unveiling the new area. “This is not just a nursery, but an outdoor classroom for students. It is a living memorial. Seedlings planted here will grow to replace the aging trees on campus and the effort will connect with environmental studies at the college.”

After graduating with an agricultural degree, Theobald operated a farm on the Rich Road in Canton for more than 50 years. At the age of 74, he purchased a hobby orchard in Vermont and changed his focus from cattle to growing fruit-bearing trees. He was a noted conservationist with a sense of wonder about the natural world. Theobald passed away in 2016 at the age of 81.

His daughter, Carol, said Ken was an eminently humble man and a life-long learner.

A large group of family and friends gathered for the Kenneth Theobald Botanical Nursery dedication ceremony.

“This project is an obvious match between a man and his mission, because it exemplifies two qualities that were central to Ken’s Life,” she said. “The first quality is education and experiential learning. The second is stewardship, rooted in a moral responsibility to build a vibrant sustainable community.”

Representatives from the Canton College Foundation were overjoyed to help facilitate the creation of the new nursery, which helps fit in with the college’s sustainability and ecological goals in addition to beautifying the campus.
