SUNY New Paltz has named the 40 alumni honorees for the 2019 celebration of the 40 Under Forty awards recognition program. An event will be held to honor the award recipients on Friday, June 7, at Novellas in New Paltz.
Honorees represent 40 alumni under the age of 40 who earned a SUNY New Paltz undergraduate, graduate, or certificate of advanced study degree. The honorees were chosen from a diverse pool of 135 nominees spanning numerous career fields, including education, the arts, science, technology, medicine, business, media and government. Honorees are nominated by their peers and faculty members and are selected for their achievements in their careers and communities.
“In our second year, we found that there was no shortage of well-deserving nominees,” said Shana Circe, director of alumni relations. “Our alumni continue to be ambitious, innovative, passionate and highly motivated leaders in their fields. They are making significant impacts in their communities both professionally and personally. We are very proud of their achievements and commitment to giving back in this way.”
Finalists were determined by the College’s 40 Under Forty Awards Committee, composed of representatives from the College’s administration, alumni leadership, faculty and staff.
