Richard Jorrey

For his commitment to establishing the College in Herkimer County and his years of generous service. 

As Chair of the Special Committee on Education, he was instrumental in developing the College’s original curricula, which focused on business and transfer programs. Mr. Jorrey, former Town of Salisbury Supervisor and County Legislator, traveled throughout the County in 1966 and 1967 encouraging a positive referendum vote to establish the College.
