The Cayuga Community College Alumni Association recently honored two alumni for their outstanding contributions to the College community. The 2013 Alumni Awards went to Patricia M. Callahan ’87 and Michael R. Frame ’99.
Callahan began her studies at Cayuga as a nontraditional student after her children were grown. She has established two scholarships at Cayuga Community College—the Patricia M. Callahan Scholarship in appreciation of her two-year experience at College, and the V. H. and P. M. Callahan Scholarship in recognition of her own success and fulfillment as a transferring, nontraditional student at Empire State College. She continues to support the College Foundation through her generous giving, and always encourages those interested in advancing their education to attend Cayuga Community College.
