Gary L. Buffington Memorial Scholarship


With the blessing and active involvement of the Buffington family, the ISA Education Foundation will award a $10,000 annual industry scholarship as a memorial to I.D.A.’s beloved Executive Vice President, Gary L. Buffington, and his three decades of service and leadership to the industrial distribution channel.
