PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Greylock Federal Credit Union has established the “Marilyn Sperling Greylock Scholar” Scholarship to honor the credit union’s recently retired president and CEO.
The scholarship will be awarded annually to a recent female high school graduate, or non-traditional woman student interested in studying business at Berkshire Community College (BCC). It provides a maximum award of $5,000.
This year’s scholarship recipient is Lori Cormier, a non-traditional student who is studying Business Career Health Information Management and plans to graduate with her associate's degree from BCC in December 2016.
“The ‘Marilyn Sperling Greylock Scholar’ Scholarship will honor Marilyn’s community leadership and highlight her contributions as a mentor to women in business. The scholarship reflects Marilyn’s strong reputation as a role model for women and the need to cultivate more women business leaders and professionals in Berkshire County,” said Greylock President John L. Bissell. “We congratulate the 2016 recipient, Lori Cormier, and wish her well as she pursues her degree and business career.”
Sperling retired Oct. 1, 2015, after serving as president and CEO of Greylock since 2010. In 2003, Sperling was named Greylock’s first woman senior vice president and held responsibility for Greylock's entire branch network. She established a distinguished 40-year career as a financial services professional in Berkshire County.
