New York State Senate Legislative Resolution Honoring Richard Hannis
Legislative Resolution was recently issued honoring Richard Hannis for special recognition for his outstanding community service through SCORE and the Upstate NY Rural Initiative.
Richard was recognized for giving not only his time and energies but also his competence, intelligence and leadership. He received special recognition for his outstanding community service through SCORE and the Upstate NY Rural Initiative, his exceptional volunteer work throughout New York State through SCORE and the Upstate NY Rural Initiative Corporation promoting business entrepreneurship and small business development in rural communities.
Richard Hannis has been a volunteer mentor with SCORE since 1996 and has previously served as district director, leading all SCORE chapters in Upstate New York. His home chapter is the Greater Binghamton SCORE Serving Southern Tier NY and Northern Tier PA. He has offered his years of business experience and expertise to colleges and universities throughout New York State, aiding schools in the development of their business departments and connecting students to career and job opportunities and SCORE counseling and workshop services that would have otherwise remained unavailable to them.
Most recently Richard dedicated himself to promoting rural economic development through the creation of the Upstate NY Rural Initiative Corporation. These valuable programs provide counseling, consulting, and business education to rural small businesses and agribusinesses at all top ten Upstate SCORE chapters throughout the state.
