A Taste of Humanics
You don't need to know...the difference between a Chardonnay and a Merlot!
The Distinguished Springfield Professors of Humanics invite you to join us for an informal wine tasting, all for a good cause. Come sample a variety of wines and enjoy some after-work socializing with colleagues and friends to raise scholarship dollars for our students. Light refreshments will be served. All proceeds from the event go directly to the Friends in Humanics Scholarship. Cheers to your generosity!
What is the Friends in Humanics Scholarship?
When Emeritus Professor Peter Polito, PhD, served as the 1998-99 Distinguished Springfield Professor of Humanics, he used the theme of “Friends in Humanics of Springfield College” to further build community on campus and in the local neighboring community through his initiation of Humanics in Action Day, Winter Community Carnival, Spring Community Festival and the Friends In Humanics Scholarship. This scholarship assists deserving Springfield College students who demonstrate financial need, academic scholarship, leadership on campus, care and concern for community, and embody the Humanics philosophy. Since 1999, employees of Springfield College have had the opportunity to support this scholarship, and Springfield College undergraduates have been awarded this scholarship each year. Since fall 2011, present and past Distinguished Springfield Professors of Humanics have helped Professor Polito sponsor fundraisers, through which current and retired faculty and staff have contributed. Annual distributions from the Peter and Claire Polito Friends In Humanics Scholarship Endowed Fund are added to this scholarship.
