The Vice President of Student Affairs Office announced that Adza Beda received the Minnie and Joe Engel Student Humanitarian Award, and Oliver Colbert received the Philip Santa Maria Memorial Award at a ceremony held on Thursday, April 25.  Beda and Colbert were selected for their outstanding leadership and their dedication and selfless service to Buffalo State and the greater community. Students were nominated by peers, faculty, and staff for their academic and extracurricular involvement both on and off campus.

The Minnie and Joe Engel Student Humanitarian Award recognizes a Buffalo State undergraduate student who has demonstrated personal character through altruism, volunteer service, and the giving of oneself to the campus and the larger community. The Engel Humanitarian Award recognizes the full measure of a person’s worth, not just as a scholar but also as someone whose efforts on behalf of others define a quality of character that embodies core values that merit recognition.

The Phillip Santa Maria Memorial Award recognizes a Buffalo State undergraduate student who has demonstrated a well-rounded character, exhibiting not only scholastic achievement but also active participation in campus life at Buffalo State and in the Western New York community and a desire to improve the world.
