In a Nov. 11 announcement during the men’s hockey game, RIT President Bill Destler revealed that the university’s future hockey arena will be known as the Gene Polisseni Center. The naming results from a $4.5 million partnership between the Polisseni Foundation and B. Thomas Golisano, founder and chairman of Paychex Inc. and an RIT trustee. Gene Polisseni’s widow, Wanda, and son Gary were on hand for the announcement at the RIT-Air Force game at Frank Ritter Arena.
