Event on March 13 Will Honor Orange County Students in Grades 6 Through 12 for Excellence in Selected Areas

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange will celebrate the outstanding achievements of 490 local students attending Orange County schools when the College hosts the awards ceremony for its 25th Sojourner Truth Awards Program at 6 p.m., Friday, March 13 in the Diana Physical Education Center on the Middletown campus.

The Sojourner Truth Awards Programs hails students from grades 6 through 12 who have excelled in areas such as athletics, citizenship, creative arts, diversity, English language arts, foreign languages, perseverance/effort, sciences and technology. The program aims to promote education in a positive manner and motivate students who are from groups that are traditionally under-represented in the college population to consider college as a viable and attainable goal. The honored students will be acknowledged during the awards ceremony.

The evening’s keynote speaker is Roy Paul, a highly sought after commentator specializing in the areas of education, social and economic justice, and the advancement of African Americans in modern pop culture and politics. He made history in the State of New York when, at the age of 19, he became the youngest African American to be elected to public office, earning a seat as a member of the Middletown School Board. He served that organization for five years.

Paul contributes political commentary on a number of on-air networks, including WABC-TV Channel 7 in New York, and is a contributor to In 2013, he was the only person to moderate debates for every city-wide office in New York City – public advocate, city comptroller, speaker of the New York City Council, and two with the candidates running for mayor. It was during that time that he developed a relationship with current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Public advocacy started for Paul at the age of 16 when he assembled more than 200 signatures of fellow students in an effort to lobby the New York State Legislature to reform its Regents exam system. He later began getting heavily involved with groups like the NAACP (which Paul spearheaded the effort to re-charter in Middletown) as well as Habitat for Humanity, Big Brother/Big Sisters and the Orange County Young Democrats, another group to which Paul was instrumental in its re-chartering.

Additionally, Paul spent three years a board member for RECAP, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to helping low-income residents through first-time home buyers programs, substance abuse services, and GED examinations.

As a journalist, Paul has interviewed Dr. Maya Angelou, former NYC mayors Ed Koch and David Dinkins, and Lilly Ledbetter, and has done features on Eartha Kitt, Madam C.J. Walker, and Marcus Garvey. Paul received his bachelor’s degree in political science from Queens College (CUNY) and his master’s in media studies from The New School University in New York.

In addition to speeches and the awards ceremony, the evening’s program will feature a presentation of colors by the Middletown High School Junior ROTC and entertainment by Jim Nixon, a local soprano saxophonist.

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 to 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 ceremony comes from presenting sponsor Orange & Rockland Utilities along with supporting sponsor O’Connor Davies.
