Mohawk Valley Community College held a dedication ceremony for their campus theatre tonight. For twenty four years Dr. Michael Schafer was president of MVCC. Nearly a hundred attended the dedication in his honor. Dr. Schafer says naming the theatre after him is a humbling experience.
He says, "I've never had anything like this happen in my life. It means that not only do the people remember me, which is very flattering, but now because my name will be on the theatre forever, I'll be part of MVCC forever."
The school estimated that during Dr. Schafer's tenure he oversaw the education of more than one hundred thousand students.
