Eight new members will be inducted into the SUNY Cortland C-Club Hall of Fame during its 41st annual banquet and ceremonies on Saturday, Oct. 31, in Corey Union.

The 2009 honorees are Donald J. Hartley '58, Kay Shanks Barton '66, Francine Kalafer '73, Joanne "Jodi" Schmeelk '73, Perry Nizzi '77, Richard "Rick" Suddaby '79, and honorary inductees Katherine "Tyke" Ley (posthumous) and Beulah "Buff" Wang.
