Message from the Office of Student Services

It is our hope that your staff, students and the families of your school community are all doing well.

At this time we are preparing to honor your students for our annual Sojourner Truth Awards Program.  We will acknowledge the accomplishments of deserving students in grades 6-12 and encourage college attendance as an option for students from groups traditionally under-represented in the college population.  This year we are pleased to announce we will hold an in-person ceremony scheduled for March 8, 2024. It has been several years since our last event so we are excited to finally be able to recognize your students that have worked so hard and to congratulate them in this way.

We would like to invite you to submit online nominations by February 2, 2024 to those students who you would like to recognize as deserving of a Sojourner Truth Award.  Please go to our Online Nomination form to enter your nomination by the deadline of February 2.  Information and criteria for the nomination process will be emailed and mailed to school personnel.  Please share this information with your colleagues.  Each award recipient will receive a certificate from SUNY Orange along with a medal acknowledging their achievements.  Medals will be presented to those who attend the ceremony.  The remainder of the medals will be mailed to those not in attendance.  All of the certificates will be mailed to the schools to be distributed by school personnel.

We are always encouraged and grateful for your support over the years and appreciate your dedication and commitment to this worthwhile program.
