{what’s new} L & B Construction Rides Wave to Manchester Golf Tournament Victory Five students receive scholarship awards Following a memorably and historically long, cold, and snowy winter, by May 18 the snow had melted and ice receded for the 9th Annual MCPHS Manchester Campus Scholarship Golf Tournament. The historic Donald Ross– designed Manchester Country Club hosted 100 intrepid golfers whose drives were long and straight, and putts precise, under ideal weather conditions for the 2015 edition of this popular event. After contestants teed off in the shotgun start, the scramble format benefited the dynamic foursome of Paul Lemire, Paul Boucher, Ed Burdzy, and Doug Snyder from L & B Construction, whose team score of 60, an impressive 11 strokes below par, catapulted L & B to an impressive victory by the slimmest margin of just two strokes. While L & B earned considerable bragging rights for its impressive team performance, the real winners were five MCPHS–Manchester campus students who each earned a $3,500 scholarship award funded from the tournament’s net proceeds of nearly $24,000. Four students, Hoyi Vanya Chan PharmD ’16, Jamie Chyat MPAS ’15, Megan Januszewski PharmD ’16, and Nastja Rebrin PharmD ’16, were recognized at the post-tournament banquet. Regan Sevinsky PharmD’ 15 could not attend the recognition

The real winners were five MCPHS–Manchester campus students who each earned a $3,500 scholarship award event due to her clinical rotation obligation in Utah. The assembled golfers and guests were also privileged to learn the fascinating and inspiring story of Megan (Robillard) Brown PharmD ’12, a previous scholarship award winner, whose heroic tales of her life as an Iraqi war veteran, captain in the U.S. Army, breast cancer survivor while an MCPHS student, and now lead pharmacist at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, left the banquet-room crowd spellbound. Thanks to the generous financial and gift-in-kind support from 49 sponsors, and a successful silent auction and raffle competition featuring everything from coffee makers to condos, total tournament proceeds exceeded $43,000, counting support from lead sponsors American Green Building Services Inc., Hannaford Supermarket, CVS Health, and Bank of America.
