Bentley College Honors Students For Service to Community

November 5, 2001

WALTHAM, Mass. - On Wednesday, three Bentley College students will be honored for their service-learning work in the Waltham community. The three students - Amanda Baker, Dominic Basile and Abbey Flanagan - will each be presented with a $500 award and plaque for their contributions to the MacArthur Elementary School in Waltham.

Dominic and Abbey were instrumental in the development of a state-of-the-art computer lab at MacArthur Elementary School. The students arranged for the donations of computers, set up the lab, and have been involved in the training of teachers and students. The 30-computer lab - the only network- and Internet-connected lab in an elementary school in Waltham - opened for use this fall.

Amanda started the America Counts math tutoring program at MacArthur Elementary School.

The luncheon will be attended by Bentley College Service-Learning students, faculty and staff and students and teachers from MacArthur Elementary School. It will take place in the Adamian Academic Center Commons at Bentley College on Wednesday, November 7 from 12:45-2:00 p.m.

The award fund was established in 1994 by Bentley College Chancellor and former President Gregory H. Adamian in memory of his mother, Sandy M. Adamian, to honor Bentley undergraduate students who make a significant contribution to the community through participation in service-learning projects.
