The Thomas G. Cantine Jr. Memorial Scholarship was established after the untimely death of Thomas G. Cantine Jr, who was an active amateur radio operator for over 50 years. Obtaining his license at the age of 13 in 1957, he held the call sign: W2TQF.
Cantine’s hobby of amateur radio led to a career as a sales engineer and engineering consultant. He taught amateur radio classes, was a volunteer examiner, active in ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service), RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service) and was a charter member of the Fulton Amateur Radio Club and served as the president of the radio club for several terms.
This scholarship has been set up in memory of Tom and his passion for amateur radio.

It feels like roller skating against the flow of a crowd of teens on a Friday night.

An advocate for those with disabilities, Karasek is employed as manager for independent living services for Oswego ARISE.

NYSAC’s standing committees are essential in the development of the series of resolutions that go before the full county delegation and become the basis of NYSAC’s legislative program for the year.
