Hartford, CT, April 3, 2015 - Approximately 300 scholarship donors, scholarship recipients, and their families gathered in the Washington Room at Mather Hall on March 26 to celebrate their achievements at the annual Scholars Reception. The Trinity College Scholars Program consists of more than 450 scholarships awarded to more than 600 Trinity College students.

The featured speaker was Jim Cuminale ’75, P’09, who said that one of the reasons he gives back to his alma mater in the form of scholarship is because he is grateful for the Trinity education he received. Summit Scholars Justin Fortier ’18  and Bridget Reilly ’16 both expressed how studying at Trinity has been enriching and rewarding academically. Cuminale’s generous contributions to the College support the Summit Scholarship Program and the newly endowed Cuminale Family Scholarship Fund.
