Mayor Domenic J. Sarno joined with Springfield College for a special endowment announcement at Springfield College as the Alvin Joseph McKenzie Scholarship Fund will be making a $25,000 scholarship fund to the college to benefit minority students in memory of Alvin Joseph McKenzie, who graduated from Springfield College in 1994. City Councilors Justin Hurst and Tracye Whitfield were also in attendance.

Mayor Sarno states, “McKenzie was a big believer in education and how it could not only enhance and change lives but also improve our local community.  Sadly, we lost Mr. McKenzie to cancer in 2007 but his memory and legacy of love to his family, children and our students will live on through this scholarship fund benefiting minority students.  I know that Mr. McKenzie will be smiling down upon us in heaven as we announce this special endowment fund for minority students at Springfield College.  Thank you to the McKenzie family for your continued belief and investment in our Springfield.”
