Dr. Laura Buffaloe announced the creation of the Dr. Laura W. Buffaloe Business Education Scholarship at Halifax Community College (HCC), June 20. The scholarship represents the largest endowment established at HCC this year, with a total of $10,000 contributed.

The scholarship was created by Buffaloe's friends and family as part of a retirement celebration held for her last fall. Having spent 40 years in education, with about 35 years at HCC, Buffaloe supported the idea. I really believe in education and wanted to help students, she said. Buffaloe retired as Vice President of Instructional Services in 2005.

An annual award, it will recognize and promote academic achievement and excellence for students enrolled in the Business Administration Program at HCC. Selection will be based on enrollment as a full-time student in the business program, a 3.0 grade point average, letters of recommendation recognizing the qualities of character and leadership, and demonstrated financial need.
