We sat down with James Daley, Assistant Athletic Trainer, Amanda Finnegan, Administrative Assistant to the School of Business, and Dr. Mark Herlihy, Associate Dean of Arts & Sciences, to talk about all things Boston Marathon 2013. We are so proud of their accomplishments and are very much looking forward to doing it again next year!
Since the Keys to Degrees program started at Endicott in 1992, it has been a source of pride for us. As this model continues to grow and gain notice with higher education groups, we’ve begun working with other universities to set up similar programs and expand opportunities for single parents. We just announced some very exciting news on this front – Keys to Degrees has received a grant for $700,000 to replicate its program at Dillard University in New Orleans!
This year, Endicott College has been presented with an exciting opportunity that is the first of its kind for the College. The John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program has awarded Endicott with three guaranteed entries into the historic Boston Marathon! As part of the marathon sponsorship each year, John Hancock provides local non-profit organizations with entries into the race, which can help create a significant fundraising opportunity and great exposure for a non-profit cause.
We’ve had a great response on campus to several recent articles put out by the Boston Globe on our groundbreaking Keys to Degrees program, designed to allow single parents to participate in the full college experience by living on a campus that supports their needs and the needs of their child. Take a look below to see some photos of our current students and hear about their experiences in the Keys to Degrees program.
