Cookie Sale to Benefit Aaron Salter Scholarship

Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Honor Society, is selling St. Patrick’s Day cookies to benefit the Lt. Aaron Salter Memorial Scholarship fund.  Cookies are $2 each and can be purchased Mon. through Friday, March 13-17 from noon until 6:00 pm in the Andrew Bouwhuis Library. You may also make a donation to the Scholarship fund by stopping by. One hundred percent of the funds raised will be donated to support the scholarship.

Lt. Aaron Salter was a hero. He served 30 years in the Buffalo Police Department before retiring in 2018. He continued to protect the community as a security guard at the Tops supermarket on Jefferson Avenue. Lt. Salter was one of ten people killed in the mass shooting in May. He was awarded a degree in Communication Studies posthumously at the 2022 commencement ceremony. Students in Lambda Pi Eta chose to honor Lt. Salter by raising money to donate to the scholarship fund in his name. Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors from financially disadvantaged families to help ensure that they succeed as matriculated college students.
