May 03, 2018

State University of New York Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson recognized 249 students from throughout the SUNY system, including two SUNY Adirondack students, during the 2018 Chancellor’s Awards for Student Excellence ceremony on April 10 in Albany.

SUNY Adirondack honorees were Theresa Betz of North Lawrence and Stephanie McLain of Pottersville.

Betz graduated in January with an associate degree in Business Administration. She was on the President’s or Dean’s list every semester during her time at SUNY Adirondack. She served as president of Phi Theta Kappa and led the group officers to the New York Regional Conference in October 2017. Betz is continuing her education in Management and Human Resources at Siena College.

McLain is double majoring in Nursing and Liberal Arts at SUNY Adirondack, while also pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Nursing from SUNY Plattsburgh. In Spring 2017, she traveled to Guatemala on a medical mission — partnering with Refuge International — to care for the people of Chocola. She volunteers with community flu clinics and organizations dedicated to Lyme research.
