ONEONTA — Some 70 SUNY Oneonta students have the Richard Siegfried Student Award this semester for academic excellence. The award is named in memory of Richard K. Siegfried, SUNY Oneonta Professor of Theatre from 1958 until 1995.
Among those receiving the award are two local students:
Maygan Deep, of Marcy, business economics; and
Brittany Lockwood, of Utica, childhood education.
Professor Siegfried (or Sieg as generations of students fondly called him) epitomized excellence in his academic life, through imagination, meticulous scholarship and discipline, college officials said.
