The Passing of Police Officer Marcia (Collins) Stella '93
1971 - 2008
It is with deep sadness that Five Quad VAS announces the passing of alumna Marcia (Collins) Stella of the Stamford Police Department. Police Officer Stella passed away on Sunday morning, quite unexpectedly, while at home with her family. Police Officer Stella was an 11 year veteran of the department, serving in the Patrol Division, Training Division and Youth Bureau. She leaves behind a husband and two young children, and our thoughts and prayers are with them now.
Bob Elling, SUNYA (BA & MPA) who got his start
in emergency medical services at 5-Quad VAS and was its first
Director of Operations in 1975, was recently awarded the Educator of
Excellence Award by the NYS EMS Council. He continues to practice as
a paramedic, author and educator in the Capital District at HVCC.
The award , which recognizes his three decades of EMT and paramedic
training, will be given out on 10/20/07 at the annual EMS awards
banquet in Syracuse.
