The recipients of the scholarships were Terrell Johnson, a 2014 graduate of the Charter School for Applied Technologies who will be attending Buffalo State College, and Saw Mey, a 2014 graduate from Lafayette High School who will also be enrolled at Buffalo State College this fall.

One of eight federal TRIO programs created for disadvantaged students, Buffalo State’s Upward Bound serves ninth through twelfth graders from Buffalo annually. Activities include a mix of tutoring, after-school programming, and a six-week summer residence at Buffalo State offering core academic subjects. Ninety percent of participants enroll in college after high school, including several at Buffalo State.

The keynote speaker at the event was former U.S. Congressman Louis Stokes of Ohio. Stokes, who served in the House of Representatives from 1969 through 1999, was the first African-American to represent Ohio. He chaired several congressional committees, including the House Select Committee on Assassinations that investigated the murders of President John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

“These young students who have achieved so much in high school deserve every opportunity to be successful in their college careers and in life,” said Carubba. “I am honored to help out with these scholarships.”
