A Nigerian graduate at the Lehman College, the City University of New York (CUNY), Olu Onemola, has received seven awards at the university's 2012 graduation ceremony.
He received the awards during the graduation ceremony held on Saturday in New York.



The North America Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria reports on Monday that Olu is the son of Bukun-olu Onemola, Nigeria’s Deputy Ambassador at the United Nations in New York.
A graduate of Political Science at Lehman, young Onemola received the distinguished ``Golden Key’’ award, otherwise referred to as International Honour Society.

NAN reports that it is an academic honour society for high-achieving scholars.
Other awards are the Pi Sigma Alpha, National Honour Society in Political Science, and The Jacob Hammer Memorial Prize in English which is awarded to a student leading in theatre performance.
He also won the Edgar Dawson Prize in Political and Legal Theory which is an award to the outstanding Political Science graduate with the strongest portfolio of political and legal essays.
Onemola also received the CUNY Vice-Chancellor's Excellence in Leadership Award, and he similarly received the Cum Laude award.

This is a Latin term that signifies "With Honours", a distinction bestowed on graduates that fall within a 3.4 to a 3.59 GPA on a four-point scale.



Speaking with NAN on the awards, the elated Onemola said they had inspired him to continue to thrive in all his endeavours, regardless of any obstacles that might stand on his way.
``My impression is that hard work definitely pays off. Being able to achieve such feats, while serving as the President of the Student Government, is a testament to hard work,’’ he said.
