April 13, 2018 – Four Dutchess Community College students were presented with 2018 State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor’s Awards for Student Excellence. The awards were presented by SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson at an April 10 ceremony in Albany.
The recipients, nominated by DCC faculty and staff, are Engineering Science student Elizabeth Bellissimo, Pleasant Valley; Human Services student Lilith Fichtmueller, Clinton Corners; General Studies student Stacie Woodard, Dover Plains; and Business Administration student Xiang (Alan) Feng Wu, Hyde Park.
