Sam Kelley 10-25

Campus Champion

In March 1985, Sam Kelley helped to organize the first SUNY Cortland Gospel Music Festival as a way of promoting diversity on the campus and in the community. The annual event celebrated its 25th anniversary on Oct. 24 and Kelley, a Distinguished Service Professor of Communication Studies, has planned every one of them. He admittedly enjoys creating opportunities for the Gospel Choir members, who in recent years have performed in Europe and Canada. He gets excited talking about his plans to take the choir to Cuba or Malta in 2012. His enthusiasm is contagious. His passion for making the students’ experience a better one is the mark of a champion.
