Elmira College Art Professor Chris Longwell was honored last week by Catholic Charities as Advocate of the Year for his dedication to the organization over the last seven years. The even more significant honor was that Catholic Charities decided to name to award after Longwell and one other donor. The Longwell-McClure award will be given annually at the Empty Bowls event.
Elmira College has been proud to host the Empty Bowls event on World Hunger Day for seven years. The art faculty and art students make bowls to donate to the event each year. The event raises awareness and funds to combat hunger in the community.
