God, country, family, and Providence College—four pillars for a fulfilling life. As an alumnus and legacy parent, my gratitude to PC and the Dominican Fathers runs deep. My PC education served me immeasurably during my 33 year tenure as a Family Court councilor for the Connecticut Judicial Branch. It is with immense joy and pride that I donate annually to the Fund for Providence College to help carry on the excellent quality education and tradition for current students.

My love of Providence College for a great undergraduate experience and the 50 years after has only grown. I was fortunate to make lifelong friends and get to know faculty and leaders of the college over the many years I worked in Rhode Island. My PC ‘roots’ have been such a big part of my family’s life and I will be forever grateful that the choice I made as an 18 year-old was absolutely the right one. The impact Providence College had on my life is immeasurable. My support for the good work of the College as it benefits future students will always remain my top priority.
