More than 100 Rochester Institute of Technology students, including Brooke Busa of Chittenango, were honored March 28 as Outstanding Undergraduate Scholars. The students were also able to invite the high school or community college teacher that made the most impact on their education.

The Outstanding Undergraduate Scholar Awards, held annually since 1976, honored students who have achieved at least a 3.85 GPA. The scholars have maintained a high standard of academic excellence while also giving back to their community through civic or volunteer work, conducting research or being engaged in a co-op or work in their field of study.

“You should be so proud of yourselves,” Ellen Granberg, RIT provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs, told them at the ceremony. “The program lists many of your achievements, awards and research breakthroughs; however, what it doesn’t mention are the countless hours that you spent studying or working on a project, completing a piece of artwork or checking your research results. Your commitment to excellence shines through.”
