The campus community is invited to attend a memorial service for Dr. Carey W. Brush at 3 p.m. Friday, Dec. 12, in the Craven Lounge at the Morris Conference Center.

Dr. Brush, who served as an administrator in a variety of roles at SUNY Oneonta, passed away on Dec. 29, 2013, at the age of 93 in Vancouver, Wash.

An outstanding academic leader who contributed a great deal during his tenure at the college, Brush first came to Oneonta in 1951 to teach for one semester in the social sciences division. He taught courses during several summer sessions in the 1950s and joined the faculty in 1958. In the years that followed, he assumed a variety of positions, including history professor, acting chair of the social sciences division, the college’s first director of liberal arts studies, and vice president for academic affairs. He served as interim president during the 1987-1988 academic year and retired from the college in 1989.

Trained as a historian, Dr. Brush found time to write the definitive history of SUNY Oneonta in a two-volume set titled, “In Honor and Good Faith (The First Seventy- Five Years, 1889-1965)” and “In Honor and Good Faith (Completing the First Century, 1965-1990)”.

The college flag will be flown at half-staff on Dec. 12 in his memory.

About The Conference: The Student Diversity Leadership Conference is a one day event designed for individuals from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to interact with student, administrators, and faculty presenters and exchange information to enhance multicultural comprehension, self-awareness, and leadership skills. Participants will hopefully apply the acquired skills, tools, and insight to advance their personal development and be effective leaders both on campus and in the surrounding communities.

Another tremendous year of fundraising has allowed for 25 needy senior families to receive food and necessities to help them over the winter months.  Through the outstanding efforts of dedicated supporters, we surpassed numbers from previous years.  Special thanks goes out to J. Hamm and Sodexo, J. Hendrickson and Red Dragon Outfitters, Richard “Otto” Rothermel Law Office, Les Grummons Funeral Home, United Student Rentals, The Ladies of the Moose…Oneonta Chapter,

Shannon O’Connor and Alpha Phi Omega (APO) …Xi Rho Chapter. There were approximately 125 students from APO who offered their services.  This list would not be complete without mention of Bonnie Robinson who always saves the day.  I would also like to thank the many individuals who continue to support us as well as those new businesses who have joined our cause. Our years of dedication have shown that we will continue to provide local seniors citizens with as much as possible to help them over the winter months.

I would like to dedicate this year’s efforts to my Mother, Camille Fleming who passed away just a few days before her 92nd Birthday and Thanksgiving.

Thank you to all who participated and wishing everyone a peaceful and happy holiday season.

Best,  Sheila A. Serbay
