Giovanina Vancheri, a junior majoring in Business Administration: Marketing from Rochester, N.Y., has become Fredonia’s first recipient of the GEICO Achievement Award.

Only 34 students from across the country are receiving the 2018 Achievement Award. The honor, which includes a $2,500 cash award, recognizes students for hard work, leadership and dedication to their communities. The award was presented to Ms. Vancheri by 2006 Fredonia graduate Randall Filighera, a GEICO college recruiter based in Getzville, N.Y., who works closely with Fredonia’s Career Development Office, along with 2017 Fredonia graduates Michaela Lee and Brianne Corbelli, GEICO management development associates.

Vancheri, daughter of Nino Vancheri and Sarah Taffner, graduated Magna Cum Laude from Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women. She is enrolled in the Honors Program at Fredonia and a member of the women’s tennis team.

Established 25 years ago, the GEICO accolade is intended to benefit students while they are in college, as well as to introduce them to GEICO as a potential employer.

To be considered for the award, students must be enrolled full-time as a sophomore or junior at an accredited four-year college or university and have a GPA of 3.0 or better and a major in Business, Mathematics or Computer Science or in a discipline related to Business such as Economics, Finance, Marketing, Management, Information Systems, Computer Engineering, Statistics or Actuarial Science.
