Campus Champion

Todd Malone ’11, SUNY Cortland’s assistant sport facilities manager and Alumni Arena manager, has a new mission this semester. With the thousands of faculty, staff and students returning to campus who will be pool tested for COVID-19 in the Student Life Center, Todd plays a major role in the university’s COVID testing, overseeing daily schedules and staffing. “We still need more employees to volunteer for at least one COVID-19-related support activity identified in this Volunteer/Redeployment form,” Todd said. With enough volunteers, he can work his magic to streamline five testing stations and 25 staff volunteers to push through 1,500 tests every Monday, Tuesday and Friday.
