Natalie Regan and Derek Ferris joined Dr. Domingo and Dr. Hayes-Bohanan in welcoming Lisa and Theresa Smolski to the campus on behalf of the department.
Dr. Chet Smolski, a graduate of the department, had a distinguished career as a geographer at Rhode Island College, but never forgot his roots at BSC.
Wishing to continue the tradition of excellence in geography at the college, the family has endowed an annual scholarship in the name of Chet and Theresa Smolksi. Students in good standing can apply for the award, beginning in the 2009-2010 academic year. Details of the scholarship will be publicized during the fall semester.
