LTC Canoy has been an awesome inspiration, shoulder, and ear in my life! During high School he was a great mentor and leader. Seeing him as an adult, he gets just as excited now as he did then when he asks what’s new in my life. My son has had the opportunity to meet and work with him while volunteering and thinks just as highly of him as I do. It’s literally been a “life time” of support and excitement of accomplishments and figuring out how to navigate failures. Congrats Col!

You are an amazing person and being one of your students changed my life for the better. Since hurricane Katrina I often wondered if you were still on the coast. You deserve this award more than most. Thank you for everything you do.
I have known Cliff and his family my whole life. His family and my family attended the same church. Cliff is one of the most upstanding Christian men I’ve ever known. He was always kind and a gentleman in every situation. You couldn’t ask for a better person to receive this great honor. So proud of you, Cliff.

My heart swells with pride as I think back on all the AWARDS & HONORS my Son Cliff has earned during his careers both in the Military and Academically !
There were so many Family gatherings he missed due to his commitments, but he never complained, it was all part of the duty he felt to the PROFESSIONS he had chosen! GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY, my Son has chosen well !
LTC Canoy is extremely generous with his time to help support all students. He is a great example of lending a helping hand especially when it’s need. He is greatly appreciated and admired.
I am the leader I am today because of the four years I was able to be mentored and trained up by Colonel Canoy.
To this day, I miss him and constantly remember small things he taught me about leadership.
He pushed me and stretched me.
I love to see him up for such a prestigious award!
So proud of you colonel Canoy! I hope you remember me! I’m now a professional pilot. I flew private jets around for almost 5 years and now I teach at Delta State University! I’m an Assistant Professor of Practice of Commercial Aviation. Thank you for inspiring me to follow my dreams!
LTC Canoy is an awesome person and example to this school and community. Thank you for your service, Sir.
Congratulations Lt. Col. You have made a lasting impression on me in ways you’ll never understand. Just know you deserve this. My precious daughter is now a member of the MCJROTC in her high school. I wish she was able to have you as her instructor!
