Honor Roll of Donors a 2018

A community of support


The word “community” is often used to describe Nichols College. It is also front and center in our mission statement, which begins, “Within a supportive community, Nichols College transforms today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders through a dynamic, career-focused business and professional education.” Our campus and extended communities, which include alumni, parents, friends, major corporations, local businesses, and private foundations, contribute to the success of our students in myriad ways each year. As donors who provide critical financial support and volunteers who help shape the college experience through service on boards and advisory committees, or directly enhance the professional development of students in the classroom or at their places of work. We are a better Nichols College because of you. Thanks to your generous support in the past fiscal year (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018), we can report the following: • More than $5.2 million was raised to fund over 100 areas of the college, including academic initiatives, athletics teams, event sponsorships, facilities, advanced technology, and scholarships.

• The number of endowed scholarships rose to 68, topping last year’s count by 10 and continuing to fulfill a perennial need for our students. New scholarships were established in memory of the quintessential Bison, Dick Scheffler ’63; to aid a student opting to study abroad; in honor of the Class of 1968’s 50th reunion; and to support a student who seeks a second chance to recommit to his/her education, among others.

• After its second year, the Bison Club has grown to nearly 300 members and raised more than $140,000 to increase the competitiveness of our 21 men’s and women’s varsity programs. The successful and historic season included four conference championship titles and record wins for women’s ice hockey and men’s lacrosse. Go Bison!

Through a dedicated community of support, Nichols College can carry out its mission with confidence. We are grateful to all of our donors and volunteers who invest in us and our future leaders. Thank you!

Dave and Ellen Bedard


simple twist of fate brought Ellen Smith to Nichols College. “I wanted a small business school, so Nichols was definitely in the running,” Ellen says, then admits, “But I had my heart set on going to Bryant.” Because Bryant College was unable to offer the Agawam, Mass., native on-campus housing, she took a “leap of faith” and a chance on Nichols. “It turned out unbelievably great for me,” she declares. “No regrets.” Dave’s path was a bit more preordained. Growing up in Shrewsbury, Mass., he was familiar with the college from contacts and neighbors who preceded him, including a fellow baseball player from his high school. The couple met through mutual friends, but classes, campus jobs, sports and clubs kept them otherwise busy: Dave ’86, with baseball and work in the cafeteria, and Ellen ’87, as co-editor of the yearbook and a library employee. They began dating during Dave’s final semester in 1986, were married in 1988, and raised two sons, Matthew (26) and Nicholas (23), at homes in Wilbraham, Mass., and later Avon, Conn. The End? Not quite. In the past 10 years, Dave and Ellen have added a new dimension to their Bison story, in pursuit of a deeper connection to their alma mater. Dave, who is currently senior vice president in the finance organization at New York Life in Manhattan, joined the college’s Board of Advisors as a charter member in 2007. “I really enjoyed getting up to the school and connecting,” he says. He has participated in panel discussions and mock interviews, mentored students at his work, and hosted or co-hosted alumni events. Becoming a trustee in 2011, he says, really “catapulted” his involvement. For her part, Ellen, a former employment and marketing consultant who remembers working

the phonathon all four years as a Nichols student, has shared her time and talent advocating to alumni the virtues of staying connected and supporting the college. She was also a long-time volunteer at her sons’ schools, and she and Dave have served as co-chairs of the Crystal Ball Gala for Connecticut Easter Seals. The Bedards infuse meaning in their many acts of philanthropy. When Dave’s mother died unexpectedly in 2015, the family established the Norma P. Bedard Annual Memorial Scholarship for a three-year term and planted a tree in front of Conrad Hall. When the scholarship reached its term last fall and its recipient graduated, Dave and Ellen wanted to make it permanent so they created a new endowed scholarship. The couple also recently joined the Conrad Society, documenting a commitment to provide for Nichols College in their estate planning. “We’ve been more than fortunate on many fronts, and we wanted to get something started,” Dave says of their decision to create this legacy. “We are involved in a couple of charities but Nichols is at the top…. It’s where we met. We have dear friends from there for 30 plus years. Lots of good things emanated from the Hill. What we’re doing is to help support and recognize that.” The Bedards have watched their college ties become stronger and more rewarding over the years.

They are helping to usher in a new generation of Bison — Ellen’s college roommate and maid of honor, Robin (Sharpe) Brown, has a son who is heading into his senior year at Nichols. Ellen hosted a barbecue for some of her college friends this summer; Dave met up with his for a golf outing in Orlando in April and at the Annual Alumni Golf Tournament in July. Dave has enjoyed seeing these same friends become more involved with Nichols, two of whom recently joined the Board of Advisors. “They are getting the same experience I did six or seven years ago, reengaging with the campus, the faculty, the President,” he says. (He’s quick to defer full credit for their participation, though. “Promise them some free beer, they will go anywhere,” he quips.) The group is currently rallying their class to create an endowed scholarship. While their Nichols network is precious and pervasive, the Bedards contend it is not unique in Bison Nation. “Students graduating today talk about the friends and the connections they made at Nichols. Those who graduated 10 years ago still have a tight and strong connection with their Nichols friends. I’m not sure all schools are like that,” says Dave. “All schools aren’t like that,” Ellen asserts. “There’s something about the small scale, the interesting location. Whatever it is, people seem to take away the same thing from it…that strong sense of community that they made when they were there for the four years.” Whether it was truly a twist of fate that brought them together, Ellen and Dave Bedard found a home at Nichols College, and the college is all the more blessed and grateful for it.
