SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher recognized the students who received awards from Phi Theta Kappa at a Phi Theta Kappa Award Ceremony on Wednesday, April 2 at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, NY. “Students recognized by Phi Theta Kappa truly embody the power of SUNY,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “As proven leaders and role models, scholar athletes, creative artists, and civic volunteers, each student is recognized not just for academic achievement, but also for the profound impact they have on college campuses and local communities across New York State.”
