Graduate addresses honors convocation

Sharon Newman“The Internet is a powerful, influencing force. So use the force—for good,” Sharon L. Newman, an executive producer with MSNBC and a 1979 graduate of SUNY Oswego, told the audience at the college’s recent Honors Convocation.

“And use the force to be there for one another and for your family,” she added in a topical talk on communications that touched on the Virginia Tech shootings that week.

“The community here at Oswego State is tight,” she noted. “We support and help one another.”

SUNY Oswego’s annual Honors Convocation recognizes academic excellence among Oswego’s students. This year, 90 students were honored.
