Employees support former BFA-St. Albans student's scholarship fund

Paying for college is typically a daunting cost to would-be college bound students and their parents, and any amount of financial assistance is usually well received. In the spirit of back-to-school in just a few short weeks, Burlington Labs, through its Employee Giving Campaign, chose to support the Kyndle O. Mongeon Foundation, whichpresents a scholarship each year to a graduating student from Bellows Free Academy. The foundation was named in honor of Kyndle, a BFA-St. Albans alumni, who was killed while attempting to break up a fight outside his fraternity house while he was a student at Colgate University. Employee donations totaled $774 for this courageous young man and the foundation created on his behalf.
