Student Recognition Day Honors the Best of Student Research
Every spring semester the outstanding work of those who represent the very best attributes and accomplishments of St. Francis College students are honored for their work on Student Recognition Day. This year, on April 22, seven students met the criteria of the review committee and were awarded a certificate of recognition and merit for their dedication and outstanding skill in the art of research and writing.
One paper, by Grace Curatolo, an Education major, produced a digital story of her research on assessment in the primary school classroom for her Evaluation and Assessment course. As with several of the other award winners, their mentors and professors, as well as family members were at the event to watch each student present their paper.
