LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending Steve Winter upon the occasion of his
designation as recipient of the Leadership in Education  Award  by  SUNY
Orange Foundation

WHEREAS,  Individuals  who give of their time and energies and serve the
best interests of their communities are an asset beyond remuneration and
cannot be sufficiently extolled; and
  WHEREAS, Steve Winter has given not only of his time and energies  but
also of his competence, intelligence and leadership and consequently has
been designated for special honor; and
  WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commend Steve Winter
upon  the  occasion of his designation as recipient of the Leadership in
Education Award by SUNY Orange Foundation; he will be celebrated at  the
foundation's 8th Annual Leadership Awards Ceremony, featuring The Spirit
of  Entrepreneurship,  on  Thursday,  April 10, 2014, on the SUNY Orange
Newburgh, New York, campus; and
  WHEREAS, Steve Winter, who is nearing the completion of his 51st  year
as  a  full-time faculty member at Orange County Community College (SUNY
Orange), is the College's longest tenured faculty member in a  full-time
role;  throughout  his  illustrious  tenure,  he  has  been a leader and
visionary in implementing  innovative  programs  designed  with  student
learning in mind; and
  WHEREAS,  Steve  Winter served as chair of the Business Department for
24 years where, under his  astute  guidance,  the  department  developed
programs  and partnerships that not only enhanced student opportunities,
but shaped the entire institution; he oversaw the creation of the  Asso-
ciate  in  Science degree program in business administration, as well as
the Associate in Applied Science degree in marketing; in 1982, he recom-
mended the establishment of the IBIG management institute,  a  precursor
to  Continuing and Professional Education, and SUNY Orange was the first
community college in the nation to plan and co-sponsor a business insti-
tute with local chambers of commerce; and
  WHEREAS, Steve Winter has  led  his  colleagues  in  the  adoption  of
distance  learning,  and  was  one  of the first faculty members at SUNY
Orange to use videos, created with green screen  technology,  in  class-
rooms and online; and
  WHEREAS,  Steve  Winter's  prowess as a leader in higher education has
garnered  widespread  recognition;  in  2008  he   received   the   SUNY
Chancellor's  Award  for  Excellence in Teaching, the SUNY Orange Presi-
dent's Excellence in Teaching Award, and the Association  of  Collegiate
Business  Schools  and  Programs'  Excellence  in Teaching Award for the
Northeast Region; and
  WHEREAS, Throughout the entire period  of  his  community  service,  a
period  of  constructive involvement, Steve Winter has stood constant in
dignity, good grace and humor; and
  WHEREAS, Rare indeed is the impressive dedication shown by an individ-
ual for the benefit of others which Steve Winter has displayed  through-
out his life; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend Steve Winter upon the occasion of his designation  as  recipient
of  the  Leadership in Education Award by SUNY Orange Foundation; and be
it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Steve Winter.
