Student athletes, coaches, and contributors can be nominated for our Hall of Fame.

The Corning Community College Development Foundation Alumni Committee will be accepting application for the 2020 Alumni Awards through April 1, 2020. We invite you to nominate a graduate for an Alumni Award, a community member for the Founders Partner Award, or recommend an individual for induction into the Athletic Hall of Fame.
