Richard E. Bergquist ’49

“I'm happy to give back to the Becker community. The College was a great fit for me, and I’m excited to see the traditions continue.”

“I give to the Becker Annual Fund because I am committed to the betterment of Becker.”
Johanna LeClair ’00 (undergrad) & ’11 (accelerated)
President, Becker Alumni Association

“The education I received at Becker was instrumental in achieving a successful career and, in turn, afforded me the opportunity to help provide college educations for our three children. It is of vital importance that we donate to the Annual Fund so that young people are afforded every opportunity to attain their goals.”

“Getting my degree was a long-term goal for me. I earned my bachelor’s degree through Becker’s Accelerated & Professional Studies program. It’s a great program for anyone who is already in the workforce. It’s important to me to help others achieve their goal of earning a degree.”
JoAnne Legacy ’08

“I am so proud of my heritage at Becker and think of how far I have come because of it. I came from a very small town in southern New Hampshire, just north of Boston (Kingston). My mother was a school teacher and I owe a great deal to her, as well as to Becker, for my adventurous journey from that small town to the Foreign Service (Department of State), where I was fortunate enough to travel all over the world and encounter some very unexpected adventures in the most remote parts of civilization, particularly in Africa, the Middle East, and southeast Asia. At my advanced age, it is satisfying to read my life story (which has been rewritten more than once) and to realize that I owe a great deal to my foundation at Becker all those years ago.”
Constance McDowell ’42
