President Hocoy said this year’s honorees were selected because they have led and implemented initiatives that will have a lasting impact on SUNY Erie students, as well as the community. “Our 2019 Chancellor Award winners have successfully worked to address the challenges facing our student populations today, including food insecurity and tutoring needs, while also volunteering in the community representing the College. Their dedication to service is truly commendable,” he said.

The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence was created in 1997 to recognize students who have best demonstrated, and have been recognized for, the integration of academic excellence with accomplishments in the areas of leadership, athletics, community service, creative and performing arts, campus involvement, or career achievement. It is the highest honor bestowed upon a student by his or her SUNY college or university. This year, 210 students from 64 campuses received award recognition. SUNY Erie’s awardees received a framed certificate and a medallion, which will be worn at commencement on May 22.
