Miracle Rogers received the inaugural Chancellor’s Forever Orange Award on April 20th at the second annual One University Awards Ceremony at Hendricks Chapel, which recognizes excellence at SU. Miracle, who graduated in 2017 with her BS in Exercise Science, is a founding member of WiSE Women of Color in STEM (2014). While completing an MS in Biomedical and Chemical Engineering during the 2017-2018 academic year, she served as a graduate mentor for WWoCS. Miracle was nominated for this award by LSAMP Project Director Tamara Hamilton.
The Chancellor’s Forever Orange Award distinguishes “individual students, faculty or staff who—by virtue of extraordinary hard work, good values and commitment to excellence—have come to embody the best of Syracuse University.” In both her undergraduate and graduate careers Miracle has embodied the best of SU through academic achievement, mentoring on campus and in the broader Syracuse community, and sharing her gift for dance in ways that uplift campus spirit (such as her participation in SU’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration).
WiSE offers its congratulations to Miracle and our best wishes as she prepares for a career in sports medicine. You can read more about the One University Awards on news.syr.edu.
