"My two business degrees from LSSU were instrumental in preparing me to work at all levels of Edison Sault Electric (ESE), concluding with the privilege of becoming ESE President in 1998. My company also takes pride in that 14 out of a total of 17 management personnel and about 20% of hourly employees at ESE either have degrees from or have attended a substantial number of classes at LSSU. Finally, our company and employees have contributed in excess of $500,000 to various LSSU projects over the last 25 years. ESE Believes in Blue."

Fifty-nine jets sat motionless and some 10,000 employees had no job. A shaken and exhausted Howard Putnam announced to his employees and the world that Braniff had no more cash. After 54 years of flying, Braniff would cease operations and attempt to reorganize. American Airlines picked up most of Braniff's business; within two weeks, American had substantially raised its rates.
