Name the New Allied Health and Science Building After Dr. Bettencourt
Countless Marist alumni can unequivocally attest to the fact that there are not enough words to describe the dedication, commitment, excellence and kindness of Dr. B.
We are proposing to honor Dr. B by naming the Allied Health Building after him. This is a simple way to recognize the immeasurable effect that Dr. B has had on the School of Science during his over 50 years of service. There are currently no other contenders for the Allied Health Building’s namesake, and naming the building after Dr. B will fit with Marist’s rich tradition of christening buildings after integral individuals.
Dr. B with "His love of science and passion for teaching" has truly, "touched the lives of thousands of Marist students, giving us learning tools and life skills to be successful."
Over fifty years of full-time teaching at Marist is remarkable. Many science alumni were greatly shaped by his teaching, mentoring, and commitment towards all his students. Let us genuinely honor the man who dedicated his life to his students by dedicating a beautiful building that will "perpetuate his name on the Marist campus...and continue his legacy."
There is also currently a spotlight story about Dr. Joseph Bettencourt via the link below. Once there, there is another link to donate to the Dr. Joseph Bettencourt Scholarship Fund for future Marist students. (Designate as "Other Designation" and Bettencourt Scholarship).
In the words of Dr. B, "Have a fine day."
