Members of the 2011 graduating nursing class made personal donations as a Pay It Forward gesture toward a benefit held in memory of Jaden’s brother, Kylan, who passed away during the fall 2010 semester. Jaden, a freshman in the nursing program, will graduate in 2012. (Their brother Seamus is also an ASC student in the School of Arts & Sciences.) Also pictured is Linda Panter, professor, Physical and Health Sciences Department, who oversees the Pay It Forward Scholarship on the Alfred State campus. The benefit, held Feb. 26, 2011, at the Canisteo American Legion, was organized by the Canisteo Community Support Group, Inc.; proceeds were presented to the Quinlan family to help offset Kylan’s final expenses.
