Charles T. ‘Charlie’ Salem was one of The University of Akron’s most beloved faculty members. His personal charm and rapport with students complemented his skill as an educator. Charlie was a poet, a composer, and a performer who made music an integral part of his classes and his life. Family, friends, faculty colleagues, and students were saddened by his untimely accidental death in October 1990.
The Charles T. Salem Scholarship was established as a perpetual tribute to the contributions of Charlie Salem to The University of Akron Community and Technical College (now the College of Applied Science and Technology). One of Charlie’s special interests in the college was the Distinguished Student program. This scholarship will provide annual support for one student in the program who will be selected by the Distinguished Student Committee to be the Charles T. Salem Scholar. Alternatively, the dean of the College may select an outstanding student for this designation.
