Brian J. McIntyre, president of WorkStrategy, Inc., and his family awarded four scholarships totaling $20,000 at the Collingswood High School Academic Awards Banquet on May 29th, 2013. A former student and resident of Collingswood, New Jersey, Brian started the scholarship program in 2000 and contributed over $320,000 in funds to date. The program was renamed in 2004 to the George F. and Joan D. McIntyre Scholarship Fund in honor of his parents, both of whom had been intimately involved with local charities and educational programs.
The 2013 scholarship recipients are Christine Abacan, Anna Flaherty, Tina Ngo, and Katelyn Renz.
“Collingswood High School thanks Brian and the McIntyre family for their personal contribution to our scholarship recipients and to the future of our students. Our students were positively enriched by the generosity displayed at our Academic Awards program," stated Edward Hill, Collingswood High School’s Principal. "Year after year, the members of the McIntyre family return to Collingswood and give back to our students. We remain privileged to have Brian and his family in our hearts and forever consider them an integral part of our Collingswood Community.”
“We look forward to participating each year at the Collingswood High School Scholarship Awards Banquet," commented Brian J. McIntyre. "These graduates have already accomplished a great deal academically, and we hope to provide new opportunities for them during the next phase of their learning and careers".
Mr. Hill added, “We thank the McIntyre family, and certainly appreciate the generosity and striving for excellence that is part of the award’s makeup. It is the McIntyre family’s kindness that truly affects the personal “eternity” of our students. I think that our students will not fully comprehend the gift Brian and his family has given them until they realize the opportunity to become a better person through education is attainable.”
