High Distinction for CM Students: The JFK Award; the 29 Who Shine Award and the Distinguished Student Leadership Award

As you might have noticed, this is the time of celebrations, certificates and receptions across campus.  It is the most exciting time of year, in that we can stop and recognize so many outstanding student accomplishments.   This spring, we are especially proud – CM PROUD – to share with you that three College of Management students won three very high honors and awards.

Sam Chandler will be the 37th recipient of the John F. Kennedy Award for Academic Excellence—the highest honor given to one graduating UMass Boston undergraduate students.  Sam will address his fellow graduates at this year’s commencement ceremony (so cheer loudly!).

Alyssa Trinidad was recognized as one of the top 29 students across the state who are studying at a public higher education institution with UMass Boston’s 29 Who Shine Award, given by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education.

Christopher MacRae was selected to receive the Michael Ventresca ’69 Distinguished Student Leadership Award by the Undergraduate Student Government and the Alumni Association.

These three awards are special in that any student, in any major or college, has the opportunity to be the recipient, through hard work and dedication to the principles that each award represents.  While we have always known we have outstanding students in the College of Management, we are proud that others recognize this as well.  So with these awards, and the accomplishments – large and small – of all of our students, we are: CM PROUD.

Please join us in congratulating these three students. Click the image below, or each student name above, for more information.
