DANIELSON — The Quinebaug Valley Community College Foundation has awarded $140,000 to current and future QVCC students in support of a debt-free education.  Students from northeastern Connecticut, Central Massachusetts and Western Rhode Island round-out the list of worthy recipients.
Monique Wolanin, QVCC director of institutional advancement, was excited about awarding a newly established full-scholarship endowed by Steve and Marge ’87 ‘88 Townsend. Wolanin said: “This year, for the first time in the Foundation’s 48 year history, thanks to the generosity of Steve and Marge Townsend, the Foundation awarded one full $5,000 scholarship to Putnam High School student Jeffrey Reed in recognition of his stellar high school achievements. This scholarship is renewable for year two, effectively providing Jeffrey the opportunity to earn his associate’s degree at QVCC free! Thank you to the Townsends and to the hundreds of donors who support the QVCC Foundation on an annual basis.”
Steve is a nationally recognized business leader who co-founded United Natural Foods (UNFI) in Danielson. A long-time member of the QVCC Foundation, in 2012 Steve was honored with emeritus status for his “extraordinary contribution to the Foundation’s mission.” Marge is an active community volunteer whose hard work and dedication has helped many.
