Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon recently presented a county proclamation to Lackawanna resident Samuel Koch in recognition of receiving the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence.

 

“Sam is quite inspiring and I applaud him for dealing with the challenges he faced and not giving up. It was with great pleasure that I recognize Sam on behalf of the County Legislature and congratulate him on receiving the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence. I wish him the best of luck and know he will continue to strive for great things, making his friends, family and community very proud,” said Legislator Dixon.

 

Koch graduated from Erie Community College in May with a degree in business administration and is planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree. In addition to receiving the SUNY Chancellor Award, Koch is also a past winner of the SUNY Emerging Leader Award and the Pathways Student of the Year Award, and was named to Alpha Beta Gamma National Honor Society for International Business.

 

Before being admitted to ECC, Koch successfully completed the Pathways to Success Pre-Collegiate Program. Pathways offers free GED classes and pre-collegiate math and English classes to better prepare students for college challenges, increasing their chances of success.

 

The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence honors State University of New York students who have best demonstrated and been recognized for their integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, which may include leadership, campus involvement, athletics, career achievement, community service or creative and performing arts.
