 EMS Scholarship Named for Marley Barduhn

Marley Barduhn ’76, M ’79 was actively involved in SUNY Cortland's Emergency Medical Services (SCEMS) throughout her 36 years at the College, so it is only fitting that a new award is named in her honor.

Aleena Kanner, chief of the SUNY Cortland Emergency Medical Service, presented Marley Barduhn with the plaque recognizing her 36-year commitment and designating an award fund in her name.

Established by SCEMS student volunteers and the SUNY Cortland EMS Alumni Association, the Marley Barduhn EMS Award will recognize annually a deserving SCEMS member who shows dedication exceeding membership expectations and academic excellence.

The award recognizes Barduhn’s 36 years as an advisor to SCEMS, and she will continue to play a role in reviewing the applicants as long as she chooses.

A SUNY Cortland alumna who has served the College since 1979 in many different capacities including faculty member and administrator at multiple levels, Barduhn retired in December as assistant provost emerita. Also in December, she was invited to serve as a Global Fellow in the SUNY Office of Global Affairs.

Award candidates must be full-time matriculated freshman, sophomores or juniors who are actively involved with SUNY Cortland EMS and carry a minimum 3.0 grade point average. The award will be funded through contributions from the SUNY Cortland EMS Alumni Association, which was established earlier this academic year.

“It was so important that we honor Dr. Barduhn in her retirement year,” said student SUNY Cortland EMS Chief Aleena Kanner. “She has continuously worked on behalf of SCEMS and has served as our advisor, walking history book and mentor during her 36 years." 

The SUNY Cortland EMS has more than 60 members of student volunteers trained in emergency medical response.

“We are a group that wants to help people. With the assistance of our Alumni Association, we are able to recognize Dr. Barduhn for her years of service while also giving acknowledgment to a deserving student who understands the importance of dedication to SUNY Cortland EMS," said Kanner.

The Cortland College Foundation will oversee the distribution of funds.
