Mel Busler Honored at SUNY Canton Dinner

Posted: Updated:

7 News sports anchor Mel Busler was honored Thursday night with the SUNY Canton college council's Distinguished Citizen award.

The annual award, presented during a dinner on the college campus Thursday evening, hailed Busler for "exceptional, unusual and distinguished service" to the north country.

In remarks to the audience, college council president Ron O'Neill cited Busler's long history of volunteering for community charities and organizations, and for his work promoting high school athletes during his "Athlete of The Week" segment.

Busler said he was accepting the award on behalf of the many volunteers who quietly do charitable work, day-in and day-out, but get no public recognition.
