Cameron University Foundation wraps up year with establishment of Dorothy Saltus Endowed Scholarship

The Cameron University Foundation closed out 2015 with the addition of an endowed scholarship, thanks to the generosity of donor Chris Saltus. His gift of $10,000 has resulted in the creation of the Dorothy Saltus Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship will benefit full-time Cameron students who have declared a major in a pre-nursing field.   

On behalf of his five brothers and sisters, Saltus elected to establish the scholarship in recognition of their mother, Dorothy Saltus-Johnson. She is a retired nurse who devoted more than 25 years to pediatric patients at Comanche County Memorial Hospital. She and her husband, Rohalia Johnson, reside in Lawton.

“Dedicated nurses are a valued commodity in today’s society,” says Albert Johnson Jr., Vice President for University Advancement. He is married to Mrs. Saltus-Johnson’s daughter, Tammy. “What better tribute than to establish an endowed scholarship commemorating the contributions this amazing woman made during her professional career. Her legacy of caring and compassion will endure through this endowment.”
