MVCC Foundation inducted four into Hall of Fame

Mohawk Valley Community College’s Foundation inducted four new members to the MVCC Hall of Fame during a ceremony on Monday, Dec. 4, on the Utica Campus.

The MVCC Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have embraced our community, modeled the way, inspired confidence, and encouraged excellence at MVCC. Selections are also chosen based on business or professional achievements or awards, leadership service to the local community, personal achievements, leadership support and involvement at MVCC, significant contributions to MVCC athletics, and any other appropriate qualifications.

This year’s inductees, who have made significant contributions that have a lasting effect on the development, progress, and success of MVCC, are:

  • John D. “Jack” Plumley (posthumously), former Oneida County executive and a driving force in the first expansion of MVCC’s Rome Campus
  • Mark E. Radlowski, MVCC administrator and professor emeritus
  • Colleen Peterson Wallace, the most decorated student athlete in MVCC history
  • Donald C. Willner, MVCC dean and professor emeritus
