Honors Abound at Sojourner Truth Awards
SUNY Orange celebrated the outstanding achievements of 573 students attending Orange County schools during the 26th Sojourner Truth Awards Ceremony on March 11 in the Diana Physical Education Center on the Middletown campus.
The Sojourner Truth Awards Program honors students from grades six through 12 who have excelled in areas such as athletics, citizenship, creative arts, diversity, English language arts, foreign languages, perseverance/effort, sciences, and technology. The program aims to promote education in a positive manner and to motivate students who are from groups that are traditionally under-represented in the college population to consider college as a viable and attainable goal.
O&R was a major sponsor of the event.
