The Geneseo Blue Knights faculty recognition initiative started during the fall semester continues this week as the women's lacrosse team honors four faculty on Thursday, the softball team recognizes three on Friday and track and field highlights 10 on Saturday.
Throughout the 2011-12 academic year, each student-athlete in the senior class will select one professor who has influenced their growth and development at SUNY Geneseo. The faculty member will be invited to attend a home contest, take part in a pre-game introduction ceremony and be highlighted in a special game program insert.
The four women's lacrosse seniors have chosen to recognize Dr. Meredith Harrigan, Communication, Dr. Patrick Rault, Mathematics, Professor Kristen Gentry, English and Dr. Robert O'Donnell, Biology.
The three women's softball seniors are honoring Professor Felisa Brea, Spanish, Dr. Douglas Mackenzie, Communicative Disorders & Sciences and Dr. Michael Lynch, Psychology.
The track and field team is highlighting Dr. Joseph Cope, History, Dr. Mark Mitschow, School of Business, Dr. James Kernan, Geography, Dr. Irina Vasiliev, Geography, Dr. Richard Gifford, School of Business, O'Donnell, Dr. James Allen, Psychology, Dr. Linda House, Communicative Disorders & Sciences, Dr. Donald Marozas, School of Education and Dr. Susan Bandoni Muench, Biology.
