Central Connecticut State University selected five students, including one from Montville, to receive President’s citation Awards. The President’s citation is presented annually to outstanding seniors nominated by faculty and staff and selected by the President’s Office for their leadership on campus, volunteerism and academic success.
Sydney Beckwith of Uncasville, a nursing major, created the Cancer Awareness Club for her fellow survivors at CCSU. She was recognized as a Bristol Myers Squibb National Scholar in 2021 and was presented with the CCSU Nightingale Nursing Award for 2022 in recognition of her commitment to professionalism and compassionate care in the clinical setting.
“These students exemplify our university’s vibrant community of individuals who are dedicated to their intellectual and personal growth,” CCSU President Zulma R. Toro said in a release. “While maintaining rigorous academic schedules, they also find time to present research at conferences; compete in academic contests; and complete prestigious internships. I applaud them for their diligence and leadership.”
