Sojourner Truth Awards to be Presented March 8

February 25, 2019

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange will celebrate the outstanding achievements of 635 local students attending Orange County schools when the College hosts its 29th Sojourner Truth Awards Program at 6 p.m., Friday, March 8 in the Edward A. Diana Physical Education Building on the Middletown campus.

The Sojourner Truth Awards Program honors students from grades 6 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 to consider college as a viable and attainable goal. 

The evening’s keynote speaker is Melinda E. Martinez, director of the Marist Liberty Partnerships Program, a dropout prevention and college access program for more than 340 underrepresented youths in the Poughkeepsie City School District. Martinez also volunteers as a local youth dance teacher. She is a member of the Middle Main Community Leadership Program and the Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement New York City Alumnae Board. Both organizations focus on giving back to the community through service and education.

Martinez, who is passionate about helping youth succeed in and out of the classroom, has dedicated her life to working with adolescents because she believes that our youth are our future. In addition to helping adolescents reach their highest potential, Martinez is also a community advocate who strives to empower her community by meeting their needs with academic services, mentoring, health, and financial resources.

Martinez graduated from Marist College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with a concentration in theatre. She later earned a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Psychology from Marist as well. She was valedictorian and graduate speaker at her master’s degree commencement.

In addition to speeches and the awards ceremony, four high school sophomores will be presented with scholarships on behalf of the SUNY Orange Foundation.  The evening’s program will also feature a presentation of colors by the Middletown High School Junior ROTC and entertainment by SUNY Orange student Darius Beckford. 

Sojourner Truth, for whom the program is named, lived in the mid-Hudson Valley after escaping from slavery. She is hailed as one of the most distinguished and highly regarded women of the 19th Century. Born Isabella Bomefree (later spelled Baumfree) in about 1797 in Hurley, N.Y., Isabella was sold four times before she and her daughter were given their freedom in 1828. She spoke low Dutch until she was about 10 years old and never learned to read or write. In 1843 she changed her name to Sojourner Truth to reflect her chosen mission of traveling to show people their sins and telling them what is true. She is often cited as one of the most effective and powerful speech-makers of her time.

Corporate funding for the program and awards ceremony comes from presenting sponsors Orange & Rockland Utilities and O’Connor Davies.  To learn more, visit SUNY Orange’s Sojourner Truth website at www.sunyorange.edu/stap or call the Office of Student Services at 845 341-4000.
