The Geneseo Alumni Relations Office wants to congratulate Glenn Caron '75 on receiving the first ever Geneseo Medal of Distinction award this past weekend at our Alumni and Parent Event in New York City.

A fantastic video was created chronicling Glenn's life and achievements while at Geneseo and his professional career. and includes a personal congratulations from Patricia Arquette the star of his hit show, Medium, and also features Bruce Willis and other producers and actors that Caron has worked with.

The video also includes exclusive footage from his 1987 Geneseo Commencement speech, and was presented for the first time at the Geneseo alumni event in NYC.

Due to some inclement weather Caron was not physically present to receive his award, but was able to  accept it virtually through a Skype video conference, prompting him to exclaim, "Its so much lighter than I thought it would be!" to great laughter from the crowd.

We speak on behalf of all Geneseo alumni when we say congratulations, Glenn, on your latest and continued success!

The Geneseo Alumni Relations Office
