GCC main access road renamed to honor Hawley

College Road, the access to Genesee Community College's main campus, has a new name -- R. Stephen Hawley Drive, honoring a former assemblyman who was instrumental in establishing the college nearly 40 years ago.

Hawley, a former Batavia School Board member and Genesee County legislator before a 20-year career in Albany, comes from a family who owned and farmed the land in the area around the college site.

The Batavia Town Board approved the name change. Hawley lives at the corner of Bank Street and the newly named Hawley Drive, still part of the family's 100-year-old farm.
