Student Wins Regional Award from University & Professional Continuing Education

When Timothy Bryant graduated summa cum laude from Syracuse University through the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program in May 2015, he fulfilled a lifelong dream. Attending SU was a golden opportunity that he embraced with great enthusiasm.

One of Bryant’s latest achievements is being accepted into SU’s Ph.D. program in sociology, with four years of funding. He began the program this semester.Despite the challenges of work, family responsibilities and a limited formative education, Bryant excelled in the academic environment at SU.  He not only made the dean’s list every semester on his way to a bachelor in public health, he also received the Chancellor ‘s Award for Public and Community Service—one of the highest honors SU bestows on a student.

Bryant was recently informed by University College Dean Bea González, that he has been named University & Professional Continuing Education’s (UPCEA) Outstanding Student for 2016 in the Mid-Atlantic Region. He will accept his award at the conference in Annapolis, Maryland, in October.
