Grahamsville resident Danielle Darby signalled her unmistakeable joy upon receiving her associate’s degree at SUNY Sullivan on Saturday.

SUNY Sullivan celebrates 392 grads and their teachers

By Dan Hust
LOCH SHELDRAKE — Nearly 400 people young and older graduated on Saturday at Sullivan County Community College.
“You now join the more than 11,000 alumni of SUNY Sullivan,” proudly affirmed Board President Nick Speranza.
Chief among the graduates was Class Speaker Alexandria Hercules, who expressed gratitude to her grandmother for encouraging her to stay close to her hometown of Liberty when choosing a starting point in her childhood education degree quest.
“I was able to work, learn, play and grow in the comfort of my own home here in Sullivan County,” Hercules told a capacity crowd inside SCCC’s Paul Gerry Fieldhouse.
She advised her fellow grads to “make the best of every moment – and good luck in your future endeavors.”
Guest speaker and Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther also shared some timely advice:
“Today, take a look back and appreciate how far you’ve come in your climb in life.”
“You now have the tools that will move you to the front of the pack as you’re competing in this marketplace,” added Legislature Chairman Scott Samuelson in his very first SUNY Sullivan graduation address.
But the faculty and staff weren’t forgotten in Saturday’s 48th annual commencement, with Health Professor Arlene Gordon, Student Development Services Director Rosemarie Hanofee and Student Activities Administrative Assistant Kathleen Birkett earning the prestigious Chancellor’s Award for Excellence.
“Nowhere,” said Interim President William Murabito, “have I witnessed a more student-centered and qualified faculty.”
Turning to the new grads, he added, “Please remember the great start you’ve received at SUNY Sullivan.”
