Campus Champion

Qualities of a champion often are realized in SUNY Cortland students, employees and alumni. And as Robert C. Howe proves, they can even be found in the community. A loyal Cortland College Foundation board member, Bob is the type to put others first, establishing two College scholarships in honor of his late mother and gifting many of his family’s valuable antiques to the Lynne Parks ’68 SUNY Cortland Alumni House. Assemblyman Gary Finch made sure Bob’s selflessness does not go unnoticed, presenting him last week with a citation to recognize longtime contributions to the College and the community.
