The students received their awards Dec. 5 during the Annual Richard Siegfried Lecture at the Morris Conference Center. Dr. James Mackin, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, presented the student awards before Assistant Professor of Geography and Environmental Sustainability Dr. Tyra A. Olstad gave the Siegfried Lecture on "Stewardship and Sense of Place in the Adirondack High Peaks." In order to be eligible to receive the Richard Siegfried Student Award, a student must be a full-time freshman or transfer student with a total GPA of 3.9 or higher. The award is named in memory of Richard K. Siegfried, SUNY Oneonta Professor of Theatre from 1958 until 1995. Professor Siegfried (or Sieg as generations of students fondly called him) epitomized excellence in his academic life, through imagination, meticulous scholarship and discipline, and through his expectation of the same pursuit of excellence in his students and colleagues. His dedication brought excellence to his work in such historical theater worlds as Aristophanes, Moliere, Ibsen, or Chekhov, to his rigorous study of the skills of voice and movement, and to his leadership in the imaginative creativity of improvisation.
