MetroWest CFCU Announces Richard J. Callahan Scholarship Winners

Framingham, MA – July 13, 2020 - MetroWest Community Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce that Joseph Harrington of Ashland High School and Andrew Xu of Belmont High School, are this year’s Richard J. Callahan Memorial Scholarship recipients. Both students excelled academically as they graduated in the top 15% of their schools respectively, but what truly differentiated these two from other candidates was their community service. Over the course of his high school career, Andrew Xu accumulated over 1000 volunteer hours between Mount Auburn Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Over the same period, Joseph Harrington accumulated over 300 volunteer hours at Ashland Youth Baseball and made several large donations via fundraisers for organizations such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Jimmy Fund, and many more.    

“Richard was someone who really cared about the community and tried to give back whenever he could,” said Joseph Mansour, CEO of MetroWest Community Federal Credit Union. “It’s clear to see that the community is important to these two young men and we wanted to reward them for that.” 

Mr. Callahan, a lifelong resident of Framingham, served on the Credit Union Board for over 40 years. He strongly believed in giving back and caring for others which was evident by his service to his country as a member of the U.S Army during the Korean War, and to his community, as a veteran officer of the Framingham Police Force. Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 were awarded to both recipients in memory of Mr. Callahan.
