Student Honored with Chancellor’s Award

Marissa Lathrop to receive prestigious honor
Posted April 2019

Marissa Lathrop has been selected as a 2019 recipient of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence.

Lathrop is a senior majoring in environmental education and interpretation with a minor in writing and rhetoric. She has been active on campus including serving as the assistant coordinator of the Public Speaking Lab, a lab assistant, a Student Ambassador, a member of the Student Environmental Education Coalition, and a member of the women's cross country and track and field teams. She served as women's cross-country team captain her junior and senior years and holds every ESF distance record. She was recognized for her excellence as both a student and a student-athlete when she was named a National All-American as a runner and a National All-Academic for having earned a 3.5 or higher cumulative grade point average.

The Chancellor's Award acknowledges graduating students who have best demonstrated, and have been recognized for, the integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, which may include leadership, campus involvement, community service, arts (creative or performing), athletics, and/or career achievement. This is the highest honor a student can receive from SUNY. Recipients will be honored at a reception hosted by Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson later this month.
