Senator Young recently stopped by a Good-bye Reception for Dr. John Anderson, Alfred State President, and his wife, Vivien. Back in December, President Anderson announced that he would be stepping down this spring after holding the position since 2008.
He truly was a visionary and led the school through a period of great successes. Senator Young worked closely with him on several major projects, including the Center for Organic and Sustainable Agriculture, Physical and Health Sciences building and Student Leadership Center. President Anderson’s outstanding leadership, creativity and innovation have benefitted the college and the region, and he will be sorely missed.
