GCC Seeks Nominations for Hall of Fame

Suggestions Wanted to Recognize Outstanding Alumni

BATAVIA, New York – Over the past ten years, nearly 35 outstanding graduates of Genesee Community College have been inducted into GCC’s Alumni Hall of Fame. The College Foundation knows there are many more outstanding graduates who’ve made a lasting impact on their communities and invites nominations for the 2017 Alumni Hall of Fame. Submissions are due by December 31, 2016.


Candidates nominated for the Alumni Hall of Fame should be individuals who’ve contributed significantly to their profession and have provided distinguished service to the community and/or service to Genesee Community College. Nominees must have completed their GCC degree at least ten years prior to nomination. Past inductees have represented a wide variety of career fields, from law enforcement to economic development.


Nominations may be submitted by the nominee or by friends, family, work associates or other colleagues who are familiar with the nominee. Nomination forms can be downloaded from GCC’s alumni website www.genesee.edu/alumni/HallofFame/ and emailed or sent to the College’s Alumni office.


A selection committee will choose honorees. New inductees will be honored at a reception in March 2017, and their photo and a short biography will be featured on a plaque displayed in the Alumni Hall of Fame, located on the second floor of the Conable Technology Building.

“I am just beginning to appreciate the many amazing accomplishments of GCC alumni both within our local community and beyond,” Jennifer Zambito, the new assistant director of GCC’s Alumni Affairs Office said. “I am excited to meet, greet and promote so many kind and generous members of the GCC Cougar family.
