Fran & Melissa's B-Day Northern Essex Scholarship Fundraiser
Organized by: Francis Bevilacqua
The Francis and Agnes Bevilacqua Scholarship is given annually to a current Northern Essex Community College student with a 3.0 GPA. They must be a resident of Haverhill, MA, and also they must have demonstrated involvement in, or preparing for careers in public service. Francis J. Bevilacqua (Bevi), representing Haverhill, served in the House of Representatives from 1959 to 1981. Bevi was instrumental in bringing Northern Essex Community College (NECC) to Haverhill and in 1992 received the NECC Leadership Award in recognition of his many contributions to the school and the City of Haverhill. Agnes was his devoted wife who also believed in the importance of education and public service. Scholarship awards like this one can help pay for a students tuition as well as reduce out-of-pocket expenses for things like books, supplies and health insurance. It is important to both Melissa & I that we do what we can to help people in need especially people trying to further their education.
