SUNY-ESF Honors Orchard Park Student
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Amy L. Conley of Orchard Park, a senior at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), was honored with three college awards this spring.
Conley, an environmental studies major, received the President's Leadership Award, the Maple Leaf Award, and the Robin Hood Oak Award.
Conley was the first recipient of the leadership award, which recognizes extraordinary service to the college and its students. During the ceremony at which Conley was honored, ESF President Ross S. Whaley said the award will be bestowed only as often as a student is deemed worthy to receive it.
Conley has been active in ESF student affairs for four years. She was president of the Undergraduate Student Association for two years. In addition, she has volunteered with the Writing Support Center, contributed to the student newspaper, the Knothole, and lobbied state legislators regarding tuition increases and student aid cuts.
The Maple Leaf Award honors Conley for her volunteer service. The college faculty and staff nominated her for the award.
The Robin Hood Oak Award recognizes a senior who has made outstanding contributions to the college and general public. The recipient is chosen by a committee of ESF students.
