The Middlesex Community College Foundation presented student Mirna Sugden, of Ayer, the Markowicz-Dundorf Scholarship for the 2015-2016 academic year in a recent ceremony on the Bedford campus.
Sugden is currently enrolled in MCC’s Mechanical Engineering Program. After graduation, she plans to continue her education to pursue a doctorate in the field. Sugden works as a Supplemental Instructor in “Pre-calculus for Engineering/Science” courses helping other students find success.
The Markowicz-Dunforf Scholarship was established by the Markowicz-Dundorf family to honor the memory of Rev. Walter Markowicz, whose philosophy of learning was the foundation upon which the Markowicz-Dundorf family became dedicated to public education and community service. The scholarship is awarded to a female student who is completing an associate degree with plans to continue to pursue a bachelor’s degree in math, science, technology or health.
