Cameron Stanton


We are very pleased to highlight one of our student members, Cameron Stanton.  Cameron joined WNYPA while studying at Erie County Community College.  Cameron is very supportive of WNYPA and tries to attend as many monthly meetings and events as possible.  WNYPA would like to congratulate Cameron on his recent graduation from the State University of New York at Buffalo and having been conferred a B.S. degree in May 2018 in Social Sciences Interdisciplinary with a Paralegal Studies concentration.  We are proud of Cameron in this major achievement and wish him success in his ultimate goal of acceptance into law school and studying to become an attorney. 

If you have received a recent promotion, attained an academic achievement or are involved in a community activity, please let us know.  We would like to utilize our website  to highlight member achievement.  Please contact one of our Board of Directors to post or highlight an achievement.  Thank you.
