Medaille College Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions Dr. Kush K. Bhardwaj was named Erie County Citizen of the Month for February 2018 by the Erie County Legislature at a ceremony on February 15. The award was given to Dr. Bhardwaj in recognition of his years of work with students regarding diversity, culture, education and empowerment.
Erie County Legislator April Baskin presented Dr. Bhardwaj with his award and remarked on his work in the community. “Dr. Bhardwaj’s energy and passion is limitless when it comes to teaching his students the importance of embracing culture,” she says. “He is fearless about pushing his students to ‘think about the way you’ve been trained to think,’ and works tirelessly to ensure students understand all aspects of cultural relevance in African American studies.”
When receiving the award, Dr. Bhardwaj addressed the Erie County Legislature with brief remarks. He thanked his past and present students, his mentors and his colleagues at Medaille College, which he referred to as “the place he is proud to make his professional and intellectual home.”
In particular, he expressed gratitude toward Medaille College President Dr. Kenneth Macur, VP of Enrollment Management Chris LaRusso and Director of Undergraduate Admissions Melanie Woodling.
“We are a product of our teachers,” Bhardwaj says. “We are all in the business of informing and empowering our students.”
Each month the Erie County Legislature honors a resident as “Citizen of the Month” for going above and beyond to help the community.
