State of New York Assemblyman Billy Jones visited Paul Smith’s College to issue a proclamation highlighting the institution’s 75th anniversary, skilled alumni and economic/ecological impact.

Joined by faculty, staff and students, Jones presented the document on the deck of the Joan Weill Student Center before touring the campus. He visited with members of the forestry department, Paul Smith’s College VIC and the Adirondack Watershed Institute (AWI).

“It was so wonderful to have Assemblyman Jones visit,” said AWI Executive Director Dan Kelting. “Billy is a strong partner and supporter of our work to protect clean water and we were excited to show him our lab and introduce him to our amazing team at AWI.”
