LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring SUNY Potsdam theater student ChaRon
Brabham upon the occasion of winning the National Oscar Experience
College Search

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to call attention to
those young adults within our midst whose nationally acclaimed accom-
plishments bring pride to their families, their communities, and to the
State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor SUNY
Potsdam theater student ChaRon Brabham upon the occasion of winning the
National Oscar Experience College Search; and
WHEREAS, A resident of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, ChaRon Brabham
was one of six winners that appeared live on television to deliver Oscar
statuettes to ceremony presenters on February 24, 2013, at the Academy
Awards on Oscar Sunday; she handed an Oscar toward Ang Lee for Best
Director; and
WHEREAS, A graduate of the High School for Public Service in Brooklyn,
ChaRon Brabham is a junior theater student at The State University of
New York at Potsdam and is the daughter of Charlene and Ronnie Brabham;
she is vice president of the Black Student Alliance, co-captain of Team
NV (Potsdam's dance team), and serves as a student ambassador for the
College's Office of Admissions; and
WHEREAS, As a theater major, ChaRon Brabham has learned about all
aspects of performance and storytelling, as she has acted, directed and
produced plays on campus; her involvement and success are a direct
result of her passion for the arts; and
WHEREAS, ChaRon Brabham has a strong interest in film and aspires to
be a director; because of these interests and her hard work, she was one
of the winners of the Oscar Experience Talent Search; she compiled a
30-second black-and-white short film that highlighted her goals and
vision for the future of filmmaking; and
WHEREAS, Recorded on the streets of Canarsie, Brooklyn, student ChaRon
Brabham's film stood out from the hundreds of entries the Academy of
Motion Picture Arts and Sciences received; and
WHEREAS, Some of the other highlights of ChaRon Brabham's national
experience were touring the Academy Library and Disney Animation
Studios, meeting a who's-who list of famous actors, and gaining invalu-
able life experience as she proudly represented SUNY Potsdam, the State
University of New York, Brooklyn and New York State with poise on the
Oscar stage; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is moved to honor ChaRon Brabham,
commending her for her outstanding record of volunteer service, peer
leadership, and community service and recognizing the value of her
labors and the promise of her future; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor SUNY Potsdam theater student ChaRon Brabham upon the occasion of
winning the National Oscar Experience College Search; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to ChaRon Brabham.
