Utica, NY (09/23/2013)- On Tuesday, Oct. 1, Utica College will host a dedication ceremony of memorial trees in memory of two members of the UC community, Lisa Davis and Paul Young.

Young earned his Ph.D. in U.S. history from the University of Iowa and taught there before joining the UC faculty in 2001. At UC, he taught history and black studies and served as an advisor for several groups on campus. Young, who also fought a long battle with cancer, passed away on Oct. 1, 2012.
The trees are located on the pathway between the Frank E. Gannett Memorial Library and F. Eugene Romano Hall. The ceremonies will begin at 4 p.m., followed by a reception in the Pioneer Café. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremonies will be held in the Pioneer Café.

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
