The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 9 • Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015  


Campus Champion

When Pamela Jordan leaves SUNY Cortland this week, the December graduate takes with her a resumé filled with educational achievements, life experiences and an award from the YWCA. Honored as their December Volunteer of the Month, Pamela jumped into the Bridges for Kids program in her sophomore year and never wavered from her commitment to the kids and the agency. She mentored, organized a successful Mother/Daughter Tea Party, and learned the impact one can have on a child’s life in as few as a couple hours a week. All great lessons for pursuing a master’s degree in special education. All great lessons for life.
