PSU winter athletes receive awards

PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh State department of athletics was well-represented at the Vision Awards ceremony held by the Division of Student Affairs in the Angell College Center ballrooms Friday.

The Cardinals’ women’s basketball and women’s hockey teams received Vision Awards for excellence after their great seasons, while Mike Mitchell of the men’s basketball team took home a Vision Award for community. The criteria of the award is that the nominee assists the Division of Student Affairs in reaching its mission by exemplifying one or more of its core values. Certificates were given to all honorees.

Mitchell, who is finishing up his junior year, received a Vision Award for community after spearheading a drive to collect donations of personal hygiene items during one of the Plattsburgh’s men’s basketball games in December 2013.

Thanks to the efforts of Mitchell, all of the monetary donations and personal hygiene items were given to the Plattsburgh bureau of the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity and distributed back into the Plattsburgh community where they could help those who would otherwise not be able to obtain the items themselves.
