Al Styrcula

“As a result of that education that I had received at Alfred State, I just stayed in my field and I found it very enjoyable and it became very successful for me.”

Al Styrcula

Al Styrcula

General business management, '59

When Albert Styrcula entered the workforce in 1959, he was fresh out of college, having just graduated that year from Alfred State with an associate degree in general business management.

He started out at Foodcraft Inc., a small processing and distribution company that dealt in dairy products. His jobs varied from accounting work to driving trucks to delivering milk to washing bottles.However, by 1972, Styrcula had worked his way up to the top of Foodcraft, becoming CEO and chairman of the board, positions he held until 1988, when Uni-Marts Inc. acquired the company. During that time, the company’s sales increased from $2 million to $50 million under Styrcula’s leadership.

Mary Huntington has had a strong presence at Alfred State and the nearby community since 1964, when she became first lady of the college after her husband, David, took over as the school’s seventh president. David Huntington, for whom the Huntington Administration Building on the Alfred campus is named, served as head of the college until 1986.

“I had a job offer in hand and signed and was ready to go, which was a huge relief because I didn’t have to do any job searching when I was all done with college.”

Taylor Battaglia

Mechanical Engineering Technology (BS), '10

For Taylor Battaglia, the hands-on learning he received at Alfred State was invaluable once he entered the workforce.

“I think Alfred State really gave me the experience of what it would be like to be working, partially because it wasn’t just sit down, have someone talk at you for an hour,” Taylor said. “It’s one thing to look at it in a textbook, but it’s another thing to actually hold it in your hand. It’s a totally different experience.”
