CONTACT: Jeff Foley (518) 629-8085

FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Thursday, August 1, 2002

Hudson Valley Community College's logo will appear on the rear deck lid of the No. 23 Hills Brothers Coffee Dodge during the "Sirius Satellite Radio at The Glen" at Watkins Glen on Sunday, August 11. A NASCAR Winston Cup Series event, the race will be aired nationally on NBC beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Hudson Valley's logo will appear on the car because of the college's relationship with Siemens USA, which, along with Hills Brothers Coffee and Caterpillar, is one of three programs under the umbrella of the Bill Davis Racing Team. Siemens has been contracted to build a methane cogeneration plant that will serve as a power source for Hudson Valley.

Hudson Valley Community College offers more than 50 degree and certification programs in four academic divisions: Liberal Arts and Sciences; Engineering and Industrial Technologies; Health Sciences; and Business; as well as programs run through the Educational Opportunity Center offering certification programs in workforce and academic preparation. One of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York system, it has an enrollment of more than 10,000 students each year, and is known as a leader in distance learning initiatives and worker retraining.
