Mccormick Of Schenectady Receives Clarkson University's Top Award For Young Alumni

McCormick graduated from Clarkson in 1979 with a bachelor of science degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering. She worked for the General Electric Company and New York State Office of General Services for a short period before joining the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation where she serves today as an associate environmental engineer with the Division of Environmental Remediation.

Susan D. McCormick of Schenectady, N.Y., has received a Woodstock Award from her alma mater, Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. Given each year during Reunion Weekend, the Woodstock Award honors young alumni who have demonstrated outstanding loyalty and service to Clarkson and the Alumni Association and who have used their Clarkson experience to make a notable contribution to their careers.

McCormick has given generously of her time to support Clarkson and the Alumni Association. She has completed a five-year term as member-at-large of the Alumni National Executive Council and was a member of Clarkson's Engineering Advisory Council for three years. She has served as a board of directors member and coordinated many Clarkson events over fifteen years as a member of the Capital District Alumni Chapter. She has been instrumental in recruiting many new students from the Capital District region as an alumni admission volunteer, and she received additional recognition by Clarkson's Admissions Office just yesterday by being named the Volunteer of the Year for her support with student recruitment initiatives. McCormick has served as her class reunion chair, returned to campus on numerous occasions as a speaker for the School of Engineering, and for the Alumni Career Day programs. She has been an advisor to Clarkson's Environmental Design Team and has hired many Clarkson graduates who are now employed by the Department of Environmental Conservation.

Clarkson University is an independent institution located in northern New York, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The University has 2,670 graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in its schools of Business, Engineering, Science, and Liberal Arts, and its Interdisciplinary Engineering and Management program.
