Farmingdale State Students Receive Chancellor's Award for Excellence
Professional Communications, Business Management and Nursing Students Honored
Four Farmingdale State College students were honored by the Interim Chancellor of the State University of New York, as recipients of the Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence. Since 1998, the awards have been given out annually to students who earn a grade point average of 3.78 or higher and record a significant contribution to their campus or local community. Thirty-three Farmingdale State students have received this honor.
Lauren Fink, a resident of Massapequa and professional communications major, Frank Rampello, a Melville resident and professional communications major, Delia Sarich, a resident of Patchogue and professional communications major, and Cheryl Williams, a North Babylon resident and nursing major, were among the 275 students honored SUNY-wide for their academic achievements and contributions to the campus.
"A rigorous three-part process that begins at the campus and evaluates each student's performance not only in the classroom, but also in the athletic arena, the art studio and the community, is used to determine our winners," said Interim Chancellor John Clark . "This year's recipients of the Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence are among the most gifted and talented students in the entire SUNY system and I congratulate them, their families and the campuses for all their achievements."
The Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence was created to recognize students who have best demonstrated, and been recognized for the integration of academic excellence with accomplishments in the areas of leadership, athletics, community service, creative and performing arts or career achievement.
