Amber Pelletier Memorial Scholarship
In May 2019, Amber had just completed her junior year at Saint Leo University, where she studied Psychology and Education. Soon after, Amber tragically passed away. Amber, a resident of Central Falls, Rhode Island, participated in cheerleading and dance. She was beloved by her classmates, her friends, her animals, and her family. The Saint Leo community will always remember Amber’s bright spirit. Her family established the Amber Pelletier Memorial Scholarship in her name. It will impact students for years to come – just as Amber impacted the lives of those close to her.
