CANTON -- SUNY Canton's College Council has presented Director of Career Services David F. Norenberg with the 2010 Excellence in College Service Award for helping students find careers.
"David has provided valuable career guidance to students and helped them leave SUNY Canton with a career," said SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy. "He's played an important part in helping students during their entire education by working jointly with faculty and offering his services as part of each students education."
Norenberg was honored for his enthusiasm and teamwork with students and faculty, and for his efforts in transforming the college's Career Services office. In addition to organizing annual career fairs, he has coordinated Law Enforcement Career Days and gives training presentations to resident assistants and orientation leaders. Norenberg conducts workshops each year to simplify the job search process and assist students in achieving their career goals. As a result, there has been a steady climb in the percentage of employed graduates.
The Excellence in College Service Award is awarded annually to a member of the non-teaching professional staff who demonstrates effectiveness in performance and university service, professional ability and mastery in their specialization. He was recognized at the college's Recognition Day ceremony on Friday, May 28.
