Ryan Corry Named 2011 Hockey Humanitarian Award Nominee
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Feb. 8, 2011) – Ryan Corry of the Plattsburgh State men’s hockey team has been announced as one of a record 25 nominees for the 2011 BNY Mellon Wealth Management Hockey Humanitarian Award.
The BNY Mellon Wealth Management Hockey Humanitarian Award is awarded annually to college hockey’s finest citizen and seeks to recognize college hockey players, Division I or Division III, male or female, who give back to their community in a true humanitarian spirit.
Earlier in the fall, Corry earned the annual ACT Student Initiative Award for Region III, which recognizes a student or student group that identified a need on campus or in the community and initiated a solution to address that need.
In addition to Corry’s success on the ice and in the classroom, he has remained committed to a number of community service projects. He served at the student liaison for the Cardinal Hockey Make-A-Wish Dinner, participated in the annual Buddy Walk for the North Country Down Syndrome Association, helped organize a “Hockey Helps Haiti” raffle last spring and worked for a food pantry in his hometown.
Corry is one of nine Division III players to be nominated for this year’s award, and the only nominee from the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC).
Finalists will be announced in mid-February, with the award to be presented in a ceremony on Friday, April 8 as part of the 2011 NCAA Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minn
