The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 9 • Monday, Jan. 24, 2011  


Campus Champion

Jesse Campanaro helped wrap gifts but he declares that he didn’t single-handedly put $6,000 worth of new toys into the hands of tots enrolled in Cortland County Community Action Program, Inc. (CAPCO) Head Start programs. Members of the Student Government Association, the Education Club, Athletics and many individuals raised the funds, states Campanaro, the SGA president for a second year. He did conceive of the first Holiday Toy Drive, which presented 275 wrapped gifts to underprivileged pre-schoolers. It’s why we honor this Campus Champion. “It was great to help the children get a gift at the holidays,” said the senior business economics major from Monticello, N.Y.
