Garden City, NY — Rocco Distefano, a resident of New Hyde Park and a student at Nassau Community College, is the recipient of a 2019 State University of New York (SUNY) Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence.

To qualify for the award, students were reviewed by a College committee for academic excellence and record of service to NCC and the community. “On behalf of Nassau Community College, I want to congratulate our students on receiving the SUNY Chancellor’s award for academic excellence.  The College takes great pride in this recognition, which continues a long tradition of academic achievement here at Nassau Community College,” said Dr. W. Hubert Keen, President of NCC.

“The award recipients emerged from their campuses this year as the top scholars, athletes, performers, and achievers, as well as a tremendous source of inspiration,” said SUNY Chancellor Kristina M.

Congratulations to this year’s awardees, and I applaud them for pursuing excellence in all that they do.”

The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence was created in 1997 to recognize students who have best demonstrated, and have been recognized for, the integration of academic excellence with accomplishments in the areas of leadership, athletics, community service, creative and performing arts, campus involvement or career achievement.
