Nigerian receives 7 awards at City University of New York

A Nigerian graduate of Lehman College, the City University of New York (CUNY), Olu Onemola, has received seven awards at the university’s 2012 graduation ceremony  held in New york on Saturday.

Mr. Onemola who is the son of Bukun-olu Onemola, Nigeria’s Deputy Ambassador at the United Nations in New York, received the distinguished “Golden Key” award otherwise referred to as International Honour Society.

The political science graduate also won the Edgar Dawson Prize in Political and Legal Theory which is an award presented to the outstanding student from the Political Science department with the strongest portfolio of political and legal essays.

The other awards received by Mr. Onemola include the Pi Sigma Alpha, National Honour Society in Political Science, and The Jacob Hammer Memorial Prize in English which is awarded to a student leading in theater performance.
Mr. Onemola also received the CUNY Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence in Leadership Award and he similarly received the Cum Laude award, a Latin term that signifies “With Honours”, a distinction bestowed on graduates that fall within a 3.4 to a 3.59 GPA on a four-point scale.
 An elated Mr. Onemola says “My impression is that hard work definitely pays off. Being able to achieve such feats, while serving as the President of the student government, is a testament to hard work.”
