Annual Veteran’s Scholarship Breakfast

On April 14th, 2022, Mount Wachusett Community College Foundation celebrated our veteran scholars at our Annual Veteran’s Scholarship Breakfast at Great Wolf Lodge.

The Keynote speaker was James Kopp, a senior executive with more than three decades of experience leading regional, national, and international nonprofit organizations, and was a key member of the United States World War One Centennial Commission which established the WWI Memorial on the National Mall.  The Alumni speaker was Christopher Shaddock, and Andrea Giodano was the student speaker.

The Scholarships Presented were:

Veterans Memorial Scholarship – Andrew Martinez

Joseph B., Jr. and Mary I. Ruth Scholarship – Joshua Surrette

Joseph S. Baldyga Veteran’s Fund – Tony Lam

Harold E. Drake Jr. Veteran’s Scholarship Fund – Nicole Leeper

The Babineau-Johnson Veteran’s Scholarship Fund – Andrea Giordano and Patrick Cumming

Polish-American Veteran’s Scholarship – Brian Claffey



MWCC has ranked among the top colleges for military veterans for several years. Part of this success is due to our wonderful Veteran’s Center which is run by the tireless Robert Mayer. Join us in acknowledging the successes of this year’s veteran’s scholarship winners while giving much-needed support to our Veteran’s Center. Our veterans depend on the Center for technology and a multitude of support programs, the proceeds from this event will help fund these needs.

Thank you to our sponsors!
