Press Republican Editorial

Feb. 20, 2011

Being the youngest of 10 children from Cortland NY I was the only one to receive a college degree. I made my parents, a coal truck driver and my mother a fishline worker, proud when I graduated from Alfred State in 1958. My education moved me from accounting at Smith Corona to President of Overhead Door Co of Cortland. I worked vacations and summers delivering coal with my dad, Grand Union and NYS DOT to pay my way through college. SUNY's 2 year degrees are great and must continue. I support the 5 year tuition plan.
