LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  honoring  SUNY  Potsdam  theater student ChaRon
Brabham upon the occasion  of  winning  the  National  Oscar  Experience
College Search

WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body to call attention to
those young adults within our midst whose  nationally  acclaimed  accom-
plishments  bring pride to their families, their communities, and to the
State of New York; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor SUNY
Potsdam  theater student ChaRon Brabham upon the occasion of winning the
National Oscar Experience College Search; and
  WHEREAS, A resident of Bedford-Stuyvesant,  Brooklyn,  ChaRon  Brabham
was one of six winners that appeared live on television to deliver Oscar
statuettes  to  ceremony presenters on February 24, 2013, at the Academy
Awards on Oscar Sunday; she handed an Oscar  toward  Ang  Lee  for  Best
Director; and
  WHEREAS, A graduate of the High School for Public Service in Brooklyn,
ChaRon  Brabham  is  a junior theater student at The State University of
New York at Potsdam and is the daughter of Charlene and Ronnie  Brabham;
she  is vice president of the Black Student Alliance, co-captain of Team
NV (Potsdam's dance team), and serves as a student  ambassador  for  the
College's Office of Admissions; and
  WHEREAS,  As  a  theater  major,  ChaRon Brabham has learned about all
aspects of performance and storytelling, as she has acted, directed  and
produced  plays  on  campus;  her  involvement  and success are a direct
result of her passion for the arts; and
  WHEREAS, ChaRon Brabham has a strong interest in film and  aspires  to
be a director; because of these interests and her hard work, she was one
of  the  winners  of  the Oscar Experience Talent Search; she compiled a
30-second black-and-white short film  that  highlighted  her  goals  and
vision for the future of filmmaking; and
  WHEREAS, Recorded on the streets of Canarsie, Brooklyn, student ChaRon
Brabham's  film  stood  out  from the hundreds of entries the Academy of
Motion Picture Arts and Sciences received; and
  WHEREAS, Some of the other highlights  of  ChaRon  Brabham's  national
experience  were  touring  the  Academy  Library  and  Disney  Animation
Studios, meeting a who's-who list of famous actors, and gaining  invalu-
able  life experience as she proudly represented SUNY Potsdam, the State
University of New York, Brooklyn and New York State with  poise  on  the
Oscar stage; and
  WHEREAS,  This  Legislative  Body  is  moved  to honor ChaRon Brabham,
commending her for her outstanding record  of  volunteer  service,  peer
leadership,  and  community  service  and  recognizing  the value of her
labors and the promise of her future; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  SUNY  Potsdam theater student ChaRon Brabham upon the occasion of
winning the National Oscar Experience College Search; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to ChaRon Brabham.
