Jasmine A. Ramón, a communication studies major with minors in Spanish, English, and women and gender studies from Newburgh, and Ryan Oliver Bane, a fine arts major with a concentration in ceramic tile and digital printmaking and an art education minor from Fairport, were selected as the members of their senior class who have “contributed the most to the life of the University overall” and who have “built uncompromised reputations” to deserve the highest all-around recognition of accomplishment that can be given to a student at AU.
