Herkimer College Torchbearers
The Torchbearer Award is presented by the College Board of Trustees every five years to recognize individuals whose contributions have had a significant and lasting impact on the development and operations of Herkimer College.
Award recipients are honored with individual plaques on the Torchbearer's Wall in the Robert McLaughlin College Center lobby. The plaque bears the following text: “We recognize those who have given themselves to light the way for future generations. Through their vision and commitment, our Torchbearers have built this community college and maintained its tradition of opportunity and excellence.”
