Saluting the winners, SUNY Chancellor Robert L. King said, “These students are among the State University's best and brightest. Their commitment not only to academic excellence, but also to serving the wider community, indicates they are likely to emerge as New York's future leaders. I am enormously proud of these students and very pleased to be able to recognize their accomplishments.”
The awards were presented at a ceremony at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center on April 19 in Albany. Each student received a framed certificate and a medallion that may be worn at commencement.
