Ten Undergraduates Earn Prestigious Trustee Awards

May 8, 2022

Each year, St. John Fisher College honors graduating seniors for their academic successes. Among the Class of 2022, 10 students who graduated in December 2021 and May 2022 were recognized for exceptional academic performance. These are the highest honors bestowed to baccalaureate students during their time at the College.

Dean Tricia Gatlin presents graduate Athan Brown with a Trustees Ranking Scholar Award.

The Trustees Distinguished Scholar Award is given to graduating seniors with the highest cumulative GPA based on at least 100 graded credits earned at St. John Fisher College. This year’s recipients are Joseph Current, a biology major with a chemistry minor; Ethan Lane, a biochemistry major with minors in financial planning and biology; and Natalie Petruzelli, a mathematics major with minors in economics and computer science.

The recipients of the Trustees Ranking Scholar Award are Godly Alex, a biology major; Allison Austin, a nursing major; Athan Brown, a nursing major; Kaleb Huff, a Spanish major with a languages minor; Emily Passmore, a media management major; Erica Terzo, a psychology major; and Karen Trible, a nursing major. Trustee Ranking Scholars have the highest cumulative GPA regardless of the number of graded credits earned at the College.

Each of the 10 students also graduated summa cum laude, which signifies they earned their degrees with the highest distinction.

“These are our highest achieving students whose dedication and commitment we are honored to recognize,” said Dr. Kevin Railey, provost of the College. “Their professors and I are proud of their accomplishments and wish them well in their future pursuits.”
