'Follow Your Dreams': Remarks by Honorary Degree Recipient Augustine Silveira Jr.
Distinguished Teaching Professor, Emeritus, Chemistry Department, SUNY Oswego
I am very pleased and honored to share this special morning with you and I congratulate you on your graduation day. I am honored to accept this award on behalf of all my former students at SUNY Oswego who have partnered with me in the lab and in the classroom. It speaks volumes about the caliber of my students and their accomplishments. It is also a special morning for me because people from this college and city will always be first in my heart. My wife Beverly and I feel very fortunate to have a large family of my former students, faculty, staff and administrators at Oswego and friends in the surrounding communities.

“Not everybody gets to say that they worked with a Nobel Prize winner,” said SUNY Oswego master’s graduate Michael Plante. He is one of over a dozen chemistry students of Dr. Augustine Silveira at Oswego from the 1970s to 1990s who can, as of this month, say just that.
