Alfred State College honored more than 250 students for their academic success and honored distinguished faculty members for excellence and commitment at its annual Honors Convocation. Chosen this year for the Freshman Advocate of the Year Award, presented at the ceremony, and sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, was Sarah Spencer, instructional support assistant, The Learning Center, herself a "freshman" at the college.
The award is presented to the employee at Alfred State College who had a most positive influence on a student's freshman year at the College. Spencer was cited by her nominator Jennifer Lorow, Angelica, liberal arts and sciences/humanities, as a "wonderful listener, mentor, supervisor, and friend who lights up a room with her smile and her energy." Announcement of the award was made by Dr. Steven J. Tyrell, vice president for student affairs. Pictured here, Spencer, receives her award from Tyrell while ASC Interim President Dr. John B. Clark and Janette Thomas, director, the Learning Center, look on.
