Both the Honors program and Metamorphosis class have allowed me to expand my community outreach efforts.”

Brianna, Freshman


Brianna graduated from Tri-Valley High School and has been accepted into SUNY Sullivan’s Honors Program. One of the focus areas of the Honors Program is working with the Sullivan County Federation for the Homeless… bringing food & baked goods from the college’s Culinary Arts program to the Federation to help feed the hungry folks of Sullivan County.

In addition to that, Brianna has her own mission. You see, she lives with Neurofibromatosis, a disorder that causes the growth of tumors on her nerve tissue, producing skin and bone abnormalities. She has beaten malignancy three times, and is a fighter every single day. Most impressive is her spirit. She works tirelessly to raise awareness for the Children’s Tumor Foundation and to give hope to others facing the same challenges. So much so, that she is being recognized for all her efforts. A film crew recently shot a documentary at SUNY Sullivan about Brianna, that was shown when she received the “Strength and Honor Award” from the Children’s Tumor Foundation of Detroit.
