Jason Dickens Memorial Award

This award is given in honor of Jason Dickens, who was an Ithaca College Biology major. Jason achieved an outstanding record while at Ithaca, being named to the Dean’s List every semester. He was also caring, dedicated and motivated. Jason hoped to attend medical school and to use his talents to serve society as a physician.
