FARROW AND CRMC RECOGNIZED FOR SERVICE TO AND SUPPORT OF SULLIVAN COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Sullivan County Community College (SUNY Sullivan) is pleased to announce that Joan Farrow, long-time college supporter and member of its board of trustees, was recognized with the Marvin A. Rapp Award for Distinguished Trustee Service from the New York Community College Trustees (NYCCT) of the State University of New York, Inc.
In addition, Harris-based Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) received the NYCCT Business/Industry Partnership Award on behalf of the organization's collaboration with the college.
The NYCCT Marvin A. Rapp Award signifies dedicated and effective service as a trustee over an extended period of time. Farrow, a resident of Monticello, was first appointed to the college's board of trustees in 1996 and has continued to serve as a tireless proponent of and major contributor to the college for the past 14 years. In addition to her service to SUNY Sullivan, Farrow is a long-standing member of the CRMC Board of Trustees and serves as chairwoman of its foundation.
The Business/Industry Partnership Award is the highest award the NYCCT can bestow on an organization for its commitment to its local community college. Only one award is presented in this category each year. CRMC's partnership with SUNY Sullivan is a true win-win relationship as the medical center is given access to skilled graduates while the college obtains the resources needed to offer a state-of-the-art clinical education in critical healthcare occupations.
"We are very fortunate to have such dedicated advocates and partners in Joan Farrow and Catskill Regional Medical Center," SUNY Sullivan President Dr. M. Howard-Golladay said. "We appreciate their ongoing commitment to the college and the important role it plays in our local community."
