Saul Lerner, BA '60, JD '63, and Teresa Lerner '73

Saul Lerner attended UB for his undergraduate studies before graduating from the Law School with the class of 1963. He lived in the dorms, was very active on campus, and belonged to Beta Sigma Rho. He made many dear friends as both a student and resident advisor who he kept in close contact with until his passing in 2015. He enjoyed a 35 year career in law in Buffalo. Saul’s wife, Terry Lerner attended Buffalo State College as a biology major. Afterward she attended UB and obtained a Masters in Education and, later, certification in math. She enjoyed a 28 year tenure at Amherst Middle School in Amherst, NY. Saul and Terry retired to Surprise, Arizona in 1998, where Terry still resides. Saul and Terry worked their way through school and understood the value of a dollar, but more importantly, the value of an education. Their hope was that this scholarship will provide assistance to students who are working toward achieving their goals.
