STCC students, donors celebrate academic achievements

Hampden County

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Springfield Technical Community College students and donors gathered on Wednesday evening to celebrate academic achievement. 

The STCC Foundation hosted its “Sweet STCC-cess” scholarship reception Wednesday night. Students who were awarded scholarships met donors who support the scholarship fund over dessert.  

A common path for STCC students includes transferring to a 4-year institution. 

“Going here before there was probably one of the best decisions I ever made,” said Jimmy Alvares, scholarship recipient. “It would have cost a small fortune.” 

Around 100 students received scholarships on Wednesday night to help further their education.
