SUNY Orange Program Celebrates Diversity and Achievement; Awards Banquet Set for March 9

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange will formally recognize nearly 600 local elementary and secondary school students for their achievements in a variety of educational areas when the College hosts the awards banquet for its 18th annual Sojourner Truth Awards Program at 7 p.m., March 9 in the Physical Education Building.

The Sojourner Truth Awards Program hails students from grades 6 through 12 who have demonstrated skills in areas such as language arts, mathematics, sciences, performing and media arts, athletics, citizenship, and perseverance/effort. The program aims to promote education in a positive manner and encourage students to strive for a college degree. A total of 578 students were cited for their achievement this year.

Dr. Roberto Calderín, a member of the College’s Board of Trustees as well as a distinguished school and community leader, will serve as the keynote speaker.

Calderín was the first in his family to graduate from college. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Fordham University, as well as a doctorate in Education. He also boasts a master’s degree from the City University of New York. Currently he is the principal of New Windsor Elementary School. Calderín is a longtime activist in civic and
Hispanic causes.

He has served on the boards of numerous community and civic organizations, was president of the first all-Latino Kiwanis Club in the state of New York and helped organize a Hispanic group that lobbies state legislators on education issues. He is the former chairman of the Orange County Human Rights Commission and co-chaired it first Joint Summit on the state of human rights and workforce diversity in Orange County. Calderín is an active member of the Orange County United Way as well.

He has received numerous citations and awards, including the T. Walsh McMillan Award for education leadership from the State Administrator’s Association of New York State; the 2006 Dissertation of the Year Award from Fordham University; and the 2006 National Distinguished Principal Award from the National Association of Elementary School Principals.

Sojourner Truth, for whom the program is named, lived in the mid-Hudson Valley after escaping from slavery. She is hailed as one of the most distinguished and highly regarded women of the 19th century. Born Isabella Bomefree (later spelled Baumfree) about 1797 in Hurley, N.Y., Isabella was sold four times, until she and her daughter were given their freedom in 1828. Isabella spoke low Dutch until she was about 10 years old and never learned to read or

In 1843 she changed her name Sojourner Truth to better reflect her chosen missions of traveling to show people their sins and telling them what is true. Sojourner Truth is often referred to as one of the most effective and powerful
speech-makers of her time.

Corporate funding for the program and awards banquet comes from Orange & Rockland Utilities, Provident Bank, Cellular One, Jubilee Multi-Cultural Arts and the Latin Jubilee Radio Show (WTBQ Radio, 1110 AM).
