Rebecca M. Velez of Yorktown Heights, has graduated from SUNY Canton's Emergency Management program. Velez was among the graduates recognized as part of the class of 2022.

"There has never been a graduating class in our school history quite like this one," said SUNY Canton College Council Chair Ronald M. O'Neill. "While the pandemic was unexpected and unwelcome, by going through it together, it has created a bond that I hope you will carry forward into this new phase of your lives."

SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran expressed his pride in this year's class, which was comprised of graduates who range in age from 19 to 64 years old and represent 18 U.S. states and seven countries, including Cameroon, Canada, Finland, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, and the U.K.

"I am extremely proud of all of our graduates, as they achieve this major goal in their lives," Szafran said. I know that as they move forward in life, they'll be able to accomplish many great things, as have the many alumni from SUNY Canton who have preceded them."

The college live-streamed the 114th Commencement Ceremony for those who could not attend. It also created a video of ceremony highlights.
