Held annually, this gala event celebrates the achievements of current and past SEEK students. Staff and students present the awards, and the Director of SEEK, the President and Vice President of the college speak. After the ceremony, students celebrate their achievements at a dinner sponsored by the program.
Students are recognized for both their academic and service achievements. Separate awards are given to under and upperclassmen, in order to acknowledge those who have excelled for years and encourage those who have been in school for only one year but show tremendous promise.
SEEK also recognizes that many of its students have persevered despite tremendous obstacles. We award the student who began college taking three remedial courses yet persisted in his or her studies and made it to junior or senior status; we also recognize a graduating senior who has endured tremendous economic hardship in the pursuit of his or her educational goals.
