PLYMOUTH — On Aug. 26, Quincy College President Richard DeCristofaro and Cordage Commerce Center owner Joseph Jannetty hosted the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours along the waterfront at Cordage at the Stack Shack outdoor dining area.
The evening included remarks by Sue Giovanetti, chairman of the Board of Directors of PACC; Eileen Bevivino-Lawton, member of the Board of Governors of Quincy College; and Richard DeCristofaro. All guests had the opportunity to learn more about the college and add their input on how the college can better serve the Plymouth area community.
Bevivino-Lawton recognized Plymouth as a college town and a hub of educational activity that contributes “one of the highest percentages of the student population on our campuses.”
“We are all living in very unusual times with COVID-19 and it has changed how we all live and conduct our businesses. It has also taught us the importance of staying connected and looking at what we do with a new perspective. I hope we will be able to find many opportunities to strengthen our work together. Our name may say Quincy, but we are America’s Hometown college,” said Bevivino-Lawton.
Quincy College was established in 1958, and 33 years later founded the Plymouth campus in 1991 to serve the educational needs of Southeastern Massachusetts. The first Plymouth classes were held in the Plymouth Town Library, and in 2007 the campus moved to its current location in the Cordage Commerce Center. Once
