One of St. Lawrence University's most distinguished alumni is receiving new recognition in the state legislative halls of Albany, New York, territory very familiar to him.

Senator Ronald B. Stafford (R-Plattsburgh), a St. Lawrence graduate and trustee, is among the graduates from some of New York's independent colleges and universities who have been selected for the Independent Sector's Alumni Hall of Distinction. A display of photographs and career-descriptive profiles was displayed in the Legislative Office Building adjacent to the State Capitol and the honorees will be celebrated at a dinner to be held at the Executive Mansion in April.

"This means of recognizing outstanding service, personally and professionally, to their respective communities and to the quality of life in our state, was established to focus attention on our stellar alumni and their contributions to New York," said James C. Ross, president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities, which is sponsoring the recognition and the special display. The graduates were nominated for the distinction by their alma maters.
