UAlbany’s SEFCU Arena was transformed into an elegant farmhouse-inspired wonderland last Oct. 26 for the 38th Annual Citizen Laureate Awards Dinner.

More than 400 guests gathered to celebrate student scholarship, as well as the evening’s honorees, all of whom shared very personal and meaningful stories about the paths that guided them to their current lives and careers.

Pictured, left to right, are University at Albany Foundation President and master of ceremonies George R. Hearst III; The Hon. Gerald D. Jennings ’76 (Community Laureate); Rev. Kenneth J. Doyle (Community Laureate); HVCC President Andrew J. Matonak, Ed.D. (Academic Laureate); and UAlbany President Havidán Rodríguez.
