  • Theodore Pagano of Fairport and Joseph Siracuse of Walworth received the Tyll van Geel Award at the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 19.
    Pagano, originally from Syracuse, N.Y., earned a bachelor's degree in comparative literature from Binghamton University and a master's degree in higher education administration from Warner. Soon after, he began his doctoral degree in higher education and conducted a program evaluation for the Center for Study Abroad and Interdepartmental Programs at the University of Rochester.
    Pagano, an academic counselor at the University, will focus his efforts on diversity in study abroad at the University of Rochester.
    A native of Amherst, N.Y., Siracuse, received his doctorate in educational administration with a specialization in K-12 schools. He is the assistant superintendent for instruction at the Wayne Central School District, having been a second grade teacher and a principal at the elementary and high school levels.
    The award is named for Tyll van Geel, professor emeritus, who is a renowned scholar of education law and applied ethical issues in education. The Tyll van Geel Award honors doctoral students in educational leadership who demonstrate Professor van Geel’s commitment to thoughtful, ethical leadership and decision making, and rigorous application of scholarship to practice.
