The Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce has awarded five $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors from local high schools. Recipients of the 2018 Scholarships from Marlborough High School are Igor DeMoraes, who plans to attend Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Julia Lambert who plans to attend the University of New Hampshire. The recipients from Hudson High School are Michael Cuddy, who plans to attend Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Bradford Connor who plans to attend Merrimack College. The Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School recipient is William Soto who plans to attend Wagner College.
The Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the presentation of the 2018 Cathy Gregory Mogavero Business Professionals of America Award. The award is an annual award presented to student members of the Business Professionals of America Club from each of the programs at Marlborough High School and Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School. The award is sponsored by the chamber’s scholarship fund through the auspices of the Marlborough Regional Community Foundation.
The idea for the award was first presented to the Foundation Board by President Darren McLaughlin back in the fall of 2013. “For years I have seen the efforts of the students and the advisors of the BPA programs in our local schools who work tirelessly to raise the funds necessary to send deserving students to the national competition. Students earn an invitation to compete at the national level based on their performance at the regional and state levels. I thought that some kind of an award from the Chamber of Commerce, an association of local businesses, made sense. I presented the idea to the Foundation Board and it was well received.”
Susanne Morreale Leeber, President and CEO of the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce said, “This is a perfect opportunity for our chamber of commerce to recognize the business acumen of these fine, young students. The slogan of Business Professionals of America is “Today’s students. Tomorrow’s business professionals”. What more appropriate association of students could we, as a chamber of commerce, acknowledge for their accomplishments?”
