Jack Binks

Class of 2016, BA English & BA/MA Psychology

From a small town in the north east of England, Jack Binks came to St. Francis College as a transfer student and has led the Division I soccer team to two straight conference championships.

Danielle Francavilla

Class of 2019

“The McGuire Scholarship represents opportunity in every sense of the word. When it came time to apply for college, I knew it would be a financial stretch to attend a private school. I applied to SFC; a few weeks later I received a call informing me that I qualified for a new scholarship created by the owner of the NY Mets!"

Dean Brown

Class of 2010, BA in Psychology

I chose St Francis because I needed a radical change. I wanted a school that had a Division I athletic program where I could build my athletic career and foster a successful academic career. I wanted a school that provided easy access to professors and one with a tight knit, helpful culture.

Kenneth Daly

Class of 1988, President, National Grid, New York

“A goal of mine is to pay St. Francis back for the scholarship Brother George gave me. Part of that is with contributions, but what I enjoy most is working with the students.”

Theresa Franchi

Class of 2016, BS/MS in Accounting

"As an Endowed Scholarship recipient I have learned so much about the spirit of giving. It's not about what we can do for ourselves. It's about what we can do for others and our community."
