Hometown Heroshometown heros -back

Two time Cayuga Community College alumna Kathleen (DeJoy) Genkos ’87 & ’00 and her brother Scott DeJoy, recently completed and published their first book; “Hometown Heroes: The History of the Auburn Fire Department”.  Both Kathy’s father and brother were Auburn Firefighters, and when the siblings recognized that there had not been a comprehensive book written about the History of the Auburn Fire Department, they decide to become first time authors.

“It is a project that we are both very proud of and hope that the community is as well,” Kathy said, “It’s been such an amazing journey so far – the Auburn Community is very supportive!” Kathy and Scott’s father, Frank DeJoy, is on the cover of the book.  The duo participated in a book signing this month at Downtown Books & Coffee in Auburn, NY, where the book is being sold.  It is also available for purchase through Amazon.com.
