Alfred State College is pleased to announce that Glen Cole, an adjunct instructor in the Building Trades Department, was recently presented with the school’s Student Advocate Award.
Each year, students have the opportunity to nominate a faculty member who has had a profound impact on them for the award. Cole received the honor during New Student Convocation.
As stated in his nomination letters, Cole “goes above and beyond to make sure the students both in the freshman class and senior class have everything they need to be successful. He is always willing to help students grow, explaining projects and offering input.”
The letters add, “Mr. Cole isn’t just a teacher. He works every day doing HVAC and plumbing work, as well as owning his own paintball course. Then he takes time out of his busy schedule to come to our lab every day and teach us the ins and outs of plumbing and HVAC work. Mr. Cole is an extremely generous and kind-hearted man.”
Cole has served as an adjunct instructor at Alfred State since 2009.
