Loch Sheldrake, NY (April 11, 2012) – This week, as SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher announces the recipients of the 2012 Chancellor’s Awards for Scholar Athletes, SUNY Sullivan’s own Stephen Sunday will be among the honorees. A valuable member of the Sullivan Generals baseball team, Stephen has also been an all-star in the classroom.
The NYS Junior College Chancellor's Scholar Athlete Award is a prestigious honor bestowed on students who not only compete in collegiate athletics, but who maintain high standards in academics. Stephen Sunday will graduate from SUNY Sullivan this spring with his degree in Physical Education. Currently, Stephen is carrying a 4.0 GPA.
On the field, Stephen’s outstanding play has earned him All-District, All-Region and All-Conference First Team selections as a catcher. Stephen was a team leader and key contributor on last year’s Region XV Championship team, and continues to play a key role on this year’s Generals squad.
To commemorate this honor, Stephen will receive an official letter from the Chancellor and a commemorative plaque.
SUNY Sullivan offers more than 40 degree and certificate programs, and fields 10 intercollegiate sports teams. For more information on all of SUNY Sullivan’s academic and athletic programs, please visit the college’s website: www.sunysullivan.edu.
