Society of the Red Baron
Named for the College’s mascot, the SUNY Corning Community College Society of the Red Baron was created in 2022 to recognize outstanding individuals who have supported the College through various efforts.
Recipients impact the College positively by assisting with program or service improvements; supporting creative and innovative ideas; improving the quality of the student experience; supporting the delivery of instruction; expanding the College’s diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts; providing resources or assisting with cost-saving measures; and advocating for the college in media with elected officials and in the community.
Recipients will be recognized annually at the SUNY Corning Community College Society of the Red Baron Awards Ceremony, with the second class of inductees being honored on March 17, 2023, in the Triangle Lounge at SUNY Corning Community College, in Corning, New York.
