Rollstone Bank & Trust recently donated $10,000 to the Dr. Daniel M. Asquino Scholarship Fund that is set to provide approximately $15,000 in scholarships annually to students at Mount Wachusett Community College (MWCC ) beginning next year.
“We are grateful to Rollstone Bank & Trust for this donation that will have a positive impact on MWCC students for years to come,” said MWCC President Daniel Asquino of the donation.
The donation from RBT was presented to President Asquino and Executive Director of the Mount Wachusett Community College Foundation Carla Zottoli by RBT’s Chief Operating Officer Arthur Feehan and Linda L. Racine, Executive Vice President Retail Banking and Marketing.
"RBT is happy to support MWCC and the Dr. Daniel M. Asquino Scholarship Fund," said Racine. "MWCC is an asset to our area, and a truly innovative institution. We are proud to help them continue their work."
The donation will go toward a new scholarship fund in Dr. Daniel Asquino’s name that will begin distribution next year. The goal for the endowed scholarship fund is $300,000, which will allow the Mount Wachusett Community College Foundation to award approximately $15,000 in scholarships to deserving students every year.
