Berkshire REALTORS Scholarship Awarded

Thirty years ago, Berkshire REALTORS developed one of the oldest scholarships still in existence at BCC, to proudly support a legacy of learning and the development of new skills and knowledge.  This year’s REALTOR scholarship in the amount of $750 was granted (by BCC Trustees) to James Wheeler, to a qualified business student at Berkshire Community College, and a resident of Berkshire County. He is a Business Administration major while working full time in the Pittsfield Public Schools as a custodian.  He is inspired by his children and is returning to school 10 years after his high school graduation.  His career goals are to remain a city employee and continue working in the pubic schools system or even city hall.  He writes,   “Thank you, Berkshire REALTORS, very much for awarding me with this scholarship. I will continue to work hard to keep my grades up and your scholarship will inspire me to keep working hard when things get tough. When I have accomplished the goals of my education, I hope one day to be in a position where I can give back more to my community.”  Thank you James Wheeler, 2016 Recipient
