Campus celebrates student leaders at annual Student Leadership Awards dinner

SUNY Cobleskill students and faculty gathered together on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 to celebrate the Third Annual Excellence in Student Leadership Awards dinner. An evening dedicated to students who continually demonstrate excellence in leadership, the College is proud to show its appreciation with four distinct awards highlighting their exceptional achievements.


The Emerging Student Leadership Award is presented to first year students who are actively engaged in campus organizations. These individuals set themselves apart from others by demonstrating the qualities of a great leader. The Excellence in Student Leadership Award celebrates students who enrich the student life experience at SUNY Cobleskill through continued involvement in campus life, including college activities, clubs, organizations, community service, athletics and program development. The Distinguished Excellence in Leadership Award recognizes students who significantly benefit the campus community with their exemplary service and guidance throughout their undergraduate careers. The Student Leader of the Year, an award presented by President Marion A. Terenzio, is an acknowledgement of the highest level of student leadership. This award is given to a student who has made extraordinary contributions to the College, including mentoring future leaders, leading a wide range of campus activities and showcasing exceptional service to others.

Individual plaques of the award winners will be featured in Bouck Hall.
