On January 30th, Amanda joined Hartwick College President, Margaret Drugovich, for a day at Hartwick College as part of her recognition for the award she received in November. Amanda and Dr. Drugovich were able to attend an art class, in which, they were able to see the art building, an art gallery and the pottery room. Amanda really liked seeing the art gallery; she was able to see various types of art, like sculptures and paintings. After visiting the art class, Amanda and Dr. Drugovich went to dinner at Panera where Amanda said she “got a really good salad!” Then, Amanda and Dr. Drugovich attended the basketball game where Hartwick College was playing Sage College.
At half time of the game, Amanda was recognized with an on-court presentation of the Hartwick College President’s Award. The announcer said a few words about the EDD Memorial Fund and Amanda’s participation in our events. Katie Marcella, the head women’s basketball coach, presented Amanda with a Hartwick Hawk’s down jacket. EDD Board Member Celie Smith gave Amanda a photo of herself from the EDD biking clinic last fall. Amanda was really excited to have been honored at the basketball game. Even though Hartwick lost in overtime, Amanda had lots of fun (and was glad that Hartwick wasn’t playing Syracuse because they’re her favorite college team!). Amanda said she had such a fun day with Dr. Drugovich at Hartwick College.
