Abramski Receives Moving-Up Day Award at St. Lawrence University

CANTON, NY – Katherine E. Abramski of Oswego received an award at St. Lawrence University’s Moving-Up Day ceremony, which was held on April 26 in Canton.

Abramski is majoring in mathematics and psychology.

A member of the Class of 2014, Abramski graduated from Oswego High School.

Abramski was presented with the Outstanding Beginning Student Prize (Italian), which is awarded to the students in elementary language classes who have not studied the language before and whose performance in the course has been most outstanding.

Moving-Up Day celebrates student achievements in academics and co-curricular activities. It is a campus tradition dating from 1869, when it began as “Tree Holiday,” to add trees to the campus landscape. In more recent times, the day evolved into an occasion for the recognition of student achievement and a symbolic “moving-up” of students to chapel pews vacated by students a year ahead of them.
