Crestron Establishes the Fred Bargetzi Memorial Scholarship at the University at Buffalo

Following Crestron's Chief Technology Officer's Passing in 2021, the Fred Bargetzi Memorial Scholarship has been established to provide opportunities to undergraduate students from underrepresented communities

Rockleigh, New Jersey – July 26, 2021 – Crestron today announces the establishment of the Fred Bargetzi Memorial Scholarship at Crestron's Chief Technology Officer Fred Bargetzi's alma mater, the University at Buffalo. Following Bargetzi's passing in January 2021, Crestron and members of the Bargetzi family founded the scholarship to honor his legacy and empower students at the University at Buffalo to succeed in their education by removing barriers from their progress.

The interest from the scholarship endowment will be used each year to provide four scholarships to undergraduate students from underrepresented communities to remove barriers of race, gender identification, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, or veteran status. One scholarship will be awarded to a student from each class, and at least two of the four student recipients will be Electrical Engineering majors, which was Bargetzi's former major when he was a student at the University at Buffalo. Students can begin applying for scholarships at the beginning of the Fall semester.

"One of Fred's greatest passions in life was empowering others to achieve their dreams and understand that anything is possible if you have the mindset and will to accomplish it," said Dan Feldstein, Chairman and Chief Operating Officer at Crestron. "We are pleased to establish the Fred Bargetzi Memorial Scholarship to provide new opportunities to students by giving them the resources they need to advance their education. Fred has inspired a countless number of people throughout his life, and we hope to honor his legacy through this scholarship."

Bargetzi leaves behind a legacy of innovation, creativity, enthusiasm, and kindness that has helped shape the AV industry into what it is today. Under his leadership, he challenged the industry to not only push the boundaries of what's possible, but to do so with an eye towards making the world a better place. The family at Crestron is eternally grateful for his dedication and inspiration, and the Fred Bargetzi Memorial Scholarship is one of the many ways the company is continuing to honor his remarkable life.
