Andrew L. Herster Scholarship Endowment

This scholarship was established to honor the memory of Andrew L. Herster, Northampton Community College’s founding solicitor. He provided legal counsel to the College from 1966 until he retired in 1980. In reflecting on their work together, Dr. Richard C. Richardson Jr., Northampton’s founding president, said, "Andy Herster was one of the finest human beings I have ever known. His personal integrity, high professional competence, sense of humor, positive thinking and unswerving commitment to the community led everyone to like and trust him. His contributions to the founding years of Northampton were and remain invaluable. This scholarship was founded to provide annual scholarship support to paralegal students.
