Caring Bengal Award Recipient: Rita Sumers

I am pleased to announce that Rita Sumers, Nurse 1 in the Weigel Wellness Center, has received the President's Caring Bengal Award.

Ms. Sumers was nominated for the award by Maria Garrity, senior systems programmer for IT Services, and Sarah Young, dean of students.

I am so pleased to recognize Ms. Sumers, and I encourage the entire campus community to join me in thanking her for her exceptional effort to make Buffalo State College a great place to live, learn, and work. Her award profile can be viewed on the Professional Development website.

I announced the creation and implementation of the President's Caring Bengal Award in December 2017 to recognize supportive colleagues in our Buffalo State community who not only transform the lives of our students but also help create a caring and collegial environment for our faculty, staff, and administrators.

Members of the campus community are invited to submit nominations for the President's Caring Bengal Award by 5:00 p.m. Monday, May 3. For more information about the award criteria and recipient selection process, or to submit a nomination, please visit the Professional Development website.
