Springfield College Honored with 2012 Super 60 AwardPosted October 31, 2012
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Springfield College has been awarded an Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield’s (ACCGS) 2012 Super 60 Award for revenue. Springfield College was honored recently at the award recognition luncheon at Chez Josef, in Agawam, Mass.
The ACCGS Super 60 Award is presented annually to the top businesses in the region which continue to make significant contributions to the strength of the regional economy. By achieving Super 60 status, Springfield College is recognized for the role the College has played throughout the last year in the overall economic climate for the Pioneer Valley.
“Springfield College enhanced its economic impact within the region this year by completing major campus improvement projects,” said Springfield College President Richard B. Flynn. “Chief among them were the renovations to Blake Track and the Appleton Tennis Courts.”
“We are pleased that, while fulfilling our mission of educating tomorrow’s leaders, Springfield College continues to benefit the region as one of its largest employers and purchasers of local goods and services, and by attracting thousands of visitors to the area,” added Flynn. “Beyond revenues, we remain committed to improving the quality of life in the region through our many services. Annually, our students contribute more than 150,000 hours of volunteer work. We leverage grants to support many community programs, and our on-campus educational and leadership-development programs serve hundreds of local children.”
Nominating the college was the law firm of Cooley, Shrair, P.C., counsel to the college. Nominees are private institutions or companies with revenues of at least $1 million in the last fiscal year and which are based in Hampden or Hampshire counties or are ACCGS members.
