Senior Eric Anthony was one of three Syracuse student-athletes who earned recognition recently at the 2017 Syracuse University 44 Stars of Excellence Awards Gala.
The former vice president of the Syracuse Chapter of Uplifting Athletes was honored for his demonstration of outstanding dedication and commitment to a student organization and its mission.
Anthony earned the Mary Ann Shaw Center for Public and Community Service Award for his commitment to the community.
In addition to his work with Uplifting Athletes, Anthony served as the 2016-17 Syracuse Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) vice president of community outreach. He earned undergraduate degrees in finance and real estate from the Whitman School of Management. At Syracuse, Anthony has helped spearhead the effort to raise more than $25,000 for children fighting rare diseases, delivered Easter baskets to children at Golisano Children’s Hospital and brought the Beads of Courage program to Syracuse Athletics.
