WHEREAS, A great community is only as great as those persons and organ-
izations that provide exemplary service, whether through participation
in voluntary programs, through unique personal achievement in their
profession or other endeavors, or simply through a lifetime of good
citizenship; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to commend the Communi-
ty Council for Medgar Evers College, Inc. upon the occasion of hosting
its Annual Spring Scholarship and Leadership Awards Luncheon, to be
celebrated on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at Medgar Evers College in

WHEREAS, Composed of residents, organizations, faculty, students, and

of community residents initially to ensure a four-year college be estab-
lished in the Central Brooklyn community; and
WHEREAS, A vital component of the Community Council for Medgar Evers
College's efforts to support the mission of Medgar Evers College is to
actively seek resources for and provide scholarships to deserving
students, which it has done proudly since 1980; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that those organiza-
tions which enhance the quality of life in their community, and have
shown a long and sustained commitment to supporting the academic excel-
lence of our institutions of higher learning, certainly have earned the
recognition and applause of all the citizens of this great Empire State;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Community Council for Medgar Evers College, Inc. upon the
occasion of hosting its Annual Spring Scholarship and Leadership Awards
