Angelique Roberson, a Wheatley Heights resident and business management major at Farmingdale State College, has won the coveted Newman Civic Fellowship.
The Newman Civic Fellowship is a year-long program that recognizes and supports community-committed students who have demonstrated an investment in finding solutions for challenges facing their communities.
"Being awarded the Newman Civic Fellowship is an incredible honor," Roberson says.
"I believe that I can expand my resources and my opportunities to help make a difference
and give back to the community that taught me valuable lessons in life, and other
communities like mine. From this, I hope to inspire others to become the best version
of themselves, to challenge themselves, exceed expectations, and break the status
