A Reunion Giving Message from A Wicked 80s Reunion Committee Member Bob Valinski '82

As you register for the Wicked 80's reunion, take a moment to think about what your life would be like had you not been able to finish Worcester State. What would you be doing with your life? Where would you be living? What opportunities would your kids have?

I, like many of today's students at Worcester State, was a first generation college student. My parents and grandparents never had the opportunity to attend college. As reasonably priced (inexpensive) as Worcester State was, it was still a struggle at times for the son of an auto mechanic. Put that situation in today's economy and think about how fragile the dream of a college diploma may be for some students that are close to the financial edge. There are some deserving students who just need a little financial help to get over some rough spots in their quest for a diploma.

This is why the reunion committee has selected the Student Emergency Fund for our reunion gift. We want to make sure that any hard working student is given help through the rough times in their college experience so that they can reach their dreams.

Worcester State has given me more opportunities than I ever imagined with my life. In my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd work on some of the projects I've been involved in. This is a direct result of the experiences and friends I made at Worcester State. These friends from my college days have also stayed with me longer than anyone else in my life, and I look forward to having them all in the same room with me at the same time again!

I'm sure that everyone can think of at least one friend that "just went away" during their four years at Worcester State (I had at least 3). In making a donation to the Student Emergency Fund, you are making it possible some of today's students to graduate instead of just "going away." The Student Emergency Fund provides a safety net to those who want to stay with their friends and chase the dream of a college diploma.

Bob Valinski '82
