School District Information

Message from the Vice President for Student Services

It is my hope that your staff, students and the families of your school community remain safe and healthy during these uncertain times.

We have watched as the schools in our County have pivoted to remote instruction and risen to the challenge of making this year a productive one for all students.  Here at SUNY Orange, we have done the same.

At this time of year we would normally begin preparing for the Sojourner Truth Awards Program.  The program recognizes the accomplishments of deserving students in grades 6-12 and encourages college attendance as an option for students from groups traditionally under-represented in the college population.  Although an in-person ceremony will not be possible in 2021, we still plan to recognize the students in your districts.

We invite you to submit online nominations for any students you feel are deserving of a Sojourner Truth award for 2021.  Please go to our Online Nomination form to enter your nomination no later than March 1, 2021.  Information and criteria for the nomination process has been emailed to school personnel.  Please share this information with your colleagues.  Each award recipient will receive a certificate from SUNY Orange acknowledging their achievements.  Certificates will be mailed to the schools to be distributed by school personnel.

Our most fervent hope is to have your students at SUNY Orange for a celebration of their achievement in the near future.

For additional information about the Sojourner Truth Awards, please visit the homepage of our Sojourner Truth website.  If you have any further questions, you can contact my assistant, Dolores Jones or me at 845 341-4000 or email us at gerianne.brusati@sunyorange.edu or dolores.jones@sunyorange.edu
