The Geneseo Blue Knights faculty recognition initiative started during the fall semester completes the winter phase of the program on Saturday, January 28 as the women's and men's swimming and diving and men's ice hockey teams honor 16 different faculty members. Throughout the 2011-12 academic year, each student-athlete in the senior class will select one professor who has influenced their growth and development at SUNY Geneseo.
