SUNY ESF gets donation Money will pay for coNege's first endowed chair; it will be in landscape architecture. By Buczek Staff writer The Stare University of Environmental Science and Forestry has received a SI.5 mil- lion donation the largest in its 94-year-history to set up an endowment for a faculty position and graduate student schol- arships in landscape architecture. "I think for more and more institutions like ours, this is how we achieve the kind of ambitions that we have because we're not going to be able to do it on just normal state said Richard Hawks, chair of ESF's landscape architecture faculty. The money for the college's first endowed chair comes from Helen Kennedy, of William- sburg. Va.. who bequested two- thirds of her estate to die college foundation in memory of her late husband, William Kennedy, an ESF alum, said Barbara Hasen- stab, of ESF's development of- fice. The money is now in an en- dowment and will be used to pay for the Kennedy Chair in Land- scape Architecture. The college hasn't filled the position yet. Assuming that the endowment would generate about a 5 percent return from investment, the col- lege would have about S75.000 annually to put toward a facuity salary and graduate scholarships, Hawks said. William Kennedy graduated in 1938 with a degree in land- scape architecture and worked for the National Parks Sendee. He died July 19. 1988. His wife. Helen Ridgely Kennedy, gradu- ated from Wiliiamsburg's Col- lege of William Marvin 1938. She majored in home economics and French. The Kennedys' gift came in installments, with the last por- tion arriving in November. It puts college officials one step closer to achieving then- goal of establishing endowed chairs in each of their eight faculty areas by 2020. "Each one of these topical areas will allow us to have new academic offerings, new areas of research, so they're going to be quite important for us to contin- ue to expand our offerings to students." said ESF President ESF, PAGE A-S Inside: Donations up at colleges, Kelly Aquatic center Kelly BlfttVfS Child care director KeHyCerza Kelly Darcy Kelly Gitzen KcHiHancbel Aquatic Family prime Total health Member Kelly Hili .________ ______ Member center time assistant coordinator service service substitute representative representative Kelly Hurley Kelly Long Kelly Aquatic Member Madntyre center service Aquatic representative center Kelly Miner Kelly Stahl Associate Family executive director director Index iwswess.

The answer is not in any I YMCA operational manual, but the topic pops up regularly at the seven-month-old East Area Fam- j ily YMCA in the town of Manli- i US. j Of the 280 employees there, 11 are named Kelly and one's a Kelli. The Socia] Security Adminis- tration ranked Kelly as the 125th most popular name for newborn girls in 2003. but at the YMCA, Kelly rules. It can be an adventure for the three full-time Kellys Butters, Miner and Stahl to catch up with their phone messages. "We're just passing voicernail back and forth all the Butters said. And if you yell out for Kelly at the Aquatic Center, you could get a chorus in response: Four of the part-time Kellys work there.

"Ap- parentiy. it didn't mean any- thing." Kelly Miner, the associate ex- ecutive director, was the first Kelly hired at the new Y. Her system to combat Kelly confu- sion is simple: "I always say I'm Kelly No. she said. "But I wasn't far behind at Kelly No. said Kelly Stahl, family director. The last of the original three was Kelly Butters, child care di- rector, but she does not eo bv Kelly No. 3. "Nobody calls her Kelly." Miner said. "They all call her Butters." Nucerino has his own system when he meets with the three. "I do K.B., K.M.. K.S. if they're all he said. "I don't Hke to cali people by their last name. It's hard not to say 'Butters." though, because it's fun to say." it J
