Four students receive 2018 Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence
Four SUNY Oneonta seniors are among 249 State University of New York students chosen to receive the 2018 SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence. SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson presented the awards to the students during a reception in their honor Tuesday, April 10, at the Albany Capital Center.
"I am immensely proud of these students, who have demonstrated academic excellence and dedication to enriching their campuses and communities," Johnson said. "From research publications in industry journals to volunteering in hospitals and local clinics to holding leadership roles at their institutions, I am inspired by each student we recognize today. Congratulations to all of the students receiving this year's award."
The Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence is the highest honor that SUNY bestows upon students. It is presented annually to SUNY students who demonstrate academic excellence and integrate it with accomplishments in other areas, such as leadership, career achievement, campus involvement, athletics, community service, or creative and performing arts.
Since 1998 when the Chancellor's Award program was implemented, 88 SUNY Oneonta students have received the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence.
The four SUNY Oneonta students selected to receive the 2018 SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence are Kayla Belush, Daniel Prince, Jonelle Reyes and Anthony Vecere Jr.
