Legislators Approve Two Resolutions of Congratulation to TC3

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

The Legislature, by unanimous votes, approved resolutions marking two milestones for Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3). 

The Legislature recognized the 50th anniversary of the College’s founding, when it began its life in the former Groton high school building, then relocated to its current Dryden campus.  The Legislature notes, in part, that TC3 became a leader in development of co-curricular courses in regional high schools and online course offerings, has become a model of inclusiveness and a leader in diversity, and has responded to the ever-evolving academic and social needs of students.  The Legislature “extends its warmest congratulations to Tompkins Cortland Community College, its students, faculty, administration and staff, on the 50th anniversary of its founding, and expresses its sincere thanks and support for all that the college does for our community and for the world.”

The Legislature also congratulated Orinthia T. Montague, PhD, on the occasion of her inauguration as the College’s fourth president on September 7th.  The resolution notes that President Montague comes to the College with impressive academic credentials, culminating with her Doctorate degree in higher education administration from the University of Missouri-St. Louis; that her past work experience has prepared her well for her new role; and that Dr. Montague has devoted her career to helping students, especially those from underrepresented populations, find success in their college experience.  The Legislature, on behalf of the people of Tompkins County, “extends its hearty congratulations” to President Montague, and “extends to her our firm support and sincere best wishes as she leads this wonderful institution into the bright and happy future of service to our students and our community.”
