The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 1 • Aug. 31, 2009  


Campus Champion

Frank Evangelista
In hosting the New York Jets on campus this summer, hundreds of College employees went the extra mile in meeting the NFL team’s many needs. Frank epitomized that “can-do attitude.” He and Scott Chierchio headed the two locker room crews totaling 13 employees that worked from 6 a.m. until 11 p.m., seven days a week. Frank and Scott ensured that the Stadium Complex locker room areas maintained or exceeded the Jets’ stringent, hospital-grade, cleanliness standards. In doing so, they helped to make the Jets experience at SUNY Cortland a successful one.
