Helping Out with the Cost of Education: Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts Awards Two Tighe & Bond Scholarships

Posted November 17, 2016 by

WESTFIELD, MA – November 17, 2016 – With the cost of education on a steady rise, scholarships can be a gateway for students to achieve their dreams of a college education. So it was good news when the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts recently announced the recipients of two Tighe & Bond college scholarship awards. These scholarships honor several of Tighe & Bond’s former leaders and provide support for local college students pursuing engineering degrees. Founded in 1991, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts administers over 550 charitable funds, which have been created either for the benefit of or by residents of the Pioneer Valley.

According to David Pinsky, President and CEO of the civil and environmental engineering firm, “Tighe & Bond established these annual scholarships to honor the careers and contributions of three former company leaders who were instrumental in setting the long term direction and success of the company. Our goal is to help fund higher education for talented young students who are pursuing engineering careers.” He adds, “Plus the Community Foundation does an exceptional job administering these funds to well-deserving recipients who will go on to build successful careers and make valuable contributions to their communities.”

Tighe & Bond established its first memorial scholarship fund in 1996 to honor past President George H. McDonnell, and in 1999 set up another scholarship to honor past President, Edward J. Bayon. In 2006, the firm established yet another scholarship to honor past President Philip W. Sheridan. This year’s Tighe & Bond scholarship recipients are described below.

Nam Pham, a 2016 graduate of Cathedral High School, is a recipient of the Philip W. Sheridan – Tighe & Bond Scholarship. He is attending the Northeastern University to study civil engineering.

Damond Davis, a 2016 graduate of Roger L. Putnam Vocational Technical High School, is also a recipient of the Philip W. Sheridan – Tighe & Bond Scholarship.  He is attending Western New England University to study civil engineering technology.
