Congratulations to Cherie Cuomo on being chosen for the 2020 PLPAA Scholarship!!
The PLPAA Scholarship is awarded to an active PLP sister whose contributions to Phi Lamb and her community go above and beyond. An ideal candidate embodies the values of PLP in everyday life, including scholarship, diversity, community, and sisterhood.
Cherie pledged in Fall 2019, has a 3.7 GPA, and expects to graduate in Spring 2023 and aspires to become a teacher upon graduation. In her application, Cher stated that she “joined Phi lamb because the values the sisters rushing me presented spoke to my individual likes, hobbies, and more serious things key to who I am such as my morals and ethics. I am proud to be a part of an organization that values the concern with the rights and privileges of being an individual. As a college student, I have been able to make small but meaningful impacts- especially throughout my time within Phi Lamb.”
Cher has participated in fundraising projects and events for Connor’s Project, The Vera House, promoting the Red Cross’s blood drives on campus, advocating for the Oswego Humane society and attending their charity events, and giving support to organizations that promote healthy relationships, LGBTQ+ rights, supporting S.T.E.M workers and access to educational resources throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, we are unable to present the award in person this year, but upon hearing that she was chosen, Cher replied, “Thank you oh so very much for this opportunity! I wish we had the alumni reunion this June so I could give you all my thanks through hugs but please know I am so grateful and appreciative of this. Phi lamb has showed me so much love and sisterhood this past year even with social distancing and these strange times 💛🖤💛”
Cherie does truly embody the values and spirit of Phi Lambda Phi and we are grateful for her sisterhood
