Powersports scholarship established at Manchester Community College
The Scott M. Mullin Memorial Scholarship Fund to aid students' academic pathways into the powersports industry
The family of Scott Mullin has established an endowed scholarship fund at Manchester Community College (MCC) to support students pursuing careers in the powersports industry.
Named after the longtime motorcycle enthusiast and racer, the Scott M. Mullin Memorial Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to students enrolled in the powersports program, which helps prepare students to be highly skilled, work-ready technicians with a focus on customer service.
“Scott was a very close friend of the Power Sports program at MCC,” said Professor Marc Bellerose, chair of the Automotive Technologies department at MCC. “He knew the value of an education and how important it was for the industry to have a skilled workforce. The MCC faculty and staff were grateful for his energy and constant focus on supporting students. Scott’s influence helped his MCC family maintain a commitment to the educational, professional, and personal success of their students. With this scholarship, we will continue Scott’s legacy and help others enter the field.”
A resident of Milford, Scott Mullin was 38 years old when he passed away last August. He was an accomplished expert-level racer, a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast and a pillar of the motorcycle racing community. A passion for motorcycles and an entrepreneurial spirit led his family to open Souhegan Valley Motorsports in 2005.
“Through watching his family ride and race, Scott’s motorcycle passion started at a very young age,” said Scott’s parents, George and Barbra Mullin. “His desire to get into the industry started from day one. When he was in school, there weren’t any powersports programs, so he had to figure it out on his own. Once we started the business and recognized the need for a larger pool of skilled technicians, he took the initiative to work with MCC to recruit and was always more than willing to talk to students. We hope the Scott M. Mullin Memorial Scholarship Fund will open doors for others to start down the power sports path to continue his legacy and his desire to help others.”
