On January 5, 2016, the Goodwin College Foundation accepted a gift of $10,000 from Maneeley’s Banquet and Catering, South Windsor, to benefit student scholarships.
“After many years of partnership with Maneeley’s, we are very grateful to accept this generous gift,” said Goodwin College’s president, Mark Scheinberg.
The check presentation signified the fulfillment Bruce Maneeley’s 2015 commitment to assist students in need. He believes in the mission of Goodwin College, and he feels strongly about giving back to the local community — so much so, that he has generously agreed to repeat his support in 2016.
Last year, the Goodwin College Foundation distributed $64,000 in endowed scholarships, which benefitted 16 students who displayed financial need and strong academic successes. Michele Gomez, pictured, was one of the students awarded a scholarship thanks to donors like Bruce Maneeley.
