The Impact Award was created to honor an accomplished Bentley graduate whose contributions have had a transformative effect on the Bentley community. Through dedicated service and loyalty, the award recipient personifies the power to make a difference at Bentley – both on and off campus.
Grace Doherty MBA ‘01, a loyal member of the Bentley community since she first set foot on campus to complete an MBA focused on international marketing, is the inaugural recipient of the Impact Award.
Doherty has sought out new and innovative ways to assist the Bentley community. These include helping with Career Services workshops to prepare MBA students for job interviews and encouraging her employer to take on Bentley MBA candidates as interns.
Most recently, Doherty was a key liaison in developing the Santander Universities Study Abroad Scholarship Fund at Bentley. The fund provides annual support for students to pursue academic and service-oriented programs overseas.
