42nd Annual Everett W. Ockerman Lecture and Award Presentation: Continuing to Make a Difference
Since 1975, Niagara University College of Business Administration has held the Everett W. Ockerman Lecture and Award Presentation to recognize the business seniors who have achieved a 3.5 (and above) overall grade point average. This year, on Sunday, Sept. 24, at the Niagara Falls Country Club, over 50 business seniors were recognized for their academic achievements.
The awards ceremony is named after Dr. Ockerman, a faculty member for 30 years at Niagara who served as chair of the department of commerce for 25 years. He retired in 1975, but continues to have an impact on current Niagara students.
Dr. Ockerman generously provided the university funds for the Ockerman Scholarship and for an annual event to recognize graduating seniors for their hard work in achieving academic excellence.
