May 4, 2022 — The Brunswick Community College Foundation (BCCF) team had the honor of hosting members of the military veteran’s honor society, La Société des Quarante Hommes et Huit Chevaux (the Society of Forty Men and Eight Horses) on Wednesday May 4, 2022. The gentlemen were on campus to present scholarships to two (2) well-deserving Brunswick Community College (BCC) Nursing students, Lena Devlin and Angelica Rivera. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding students who have demonstrated a commitment to bring quality nursing skills to their patients. Elizabeth Wassum, BCC Foundation Executive Director says, “It was a pleasure to have representatives of Forty & Eight on campus once again to present the scholarships to Lena and Angelica, two outstanding BCC students working towards their nursing degrees. We are fortunate to have supportive groups like the Forty and Eight in our community.” Committed to charitable and patriotic aims, the “Forty and Eight” is a fraternal and charitable Honor Society of American Veterans whose name comes from the French railroad and its 40/8 boxcars.
