The Manors will serve as honorary chairs of the Clearly Clinton Alumni Campaign.
The couple challenged other Clinton alums to consider a gift to the campaign.
“We are excited about this project and see the immense benefit the 21st Century learning commons will bring to the campus,” Mr. Manor said. “Sylvia and I wanted to give back to the place that allowed us to get our start. We are big supporters of the college and see the good it has done in the community.”
Larry and Judy Jeffords of Jeffords Steel and Engineering Company are the officials co-chairs of the Clearly Clinton Campaign. They have deep ties to the North Country and own a multi-million dollar engineering and manufacturing business that has been in operation since 1985.
Judy is also a member of Clinton’s first graduating class in 1971.
“I cannot think of a better gift or a bigger impact for every student on this campus than building a state-of-the-art learning commons,” said Steven Frederick, associate vice president of institutional advancement. “This is a gift that will continue to give for years to come.”
The Clearly Clinton Campaign will wrap up on June 31, 2016, or when the campaign goal has been reached.
