Decorated Veteran is First to Receive New Daemen Scholarship

AMHERST, N.Y. – Daemen College student veteran Nicholas Pilozzi has been selected as the first recipient of the new Karamanoukian Scholarship established with a generous gift from board trustee Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian and his wife, Karen Karalus Karamanoukian.

“As a strong supporter of our veterans and our country’s military, I’m pleased to award this scholarship to a veteran as inspiring as Nick and to offer him financial assistance so he may achieve his educational goal at Daemen,” said Karamanoukian, a vein specialist and director of the Vein Treatment Center. “This gift will also add to Daemen’s commitment to provide student veterans the resources and support they need at the college, which has been a key focus of President Gary Olson and Vice President Michael Brogan.”

Keep the Streets Safe this St. Patrick’s Day: Don’t Drink and Drive!

With fun parades, a large Irish community and no shortage of pubs in which to celebrate, St. Patrick’s Day is a huge event in Buffalo and Western New York. But when excessive alcohol becomes part of the equation, St. Patrick’s Day can quickly turn tragic.
