Stephen C. Massey Scholarship Fund

The Stephen C. Massey Scholarship has been created by the Foxboro Music Association and the Massey family to honor the legacy of Mr. Massey’s musical direction in the Foxborough Public Schools. Mr. Massey is known for his tireless dedication to his students and his craft, and he has established a culture of excellence admired by others far beyond Massachusetts. The cornerstones of his teaching have been leadership, mentorship, hard work and personal integrity, and these lessons have become lifetime learnings for the thousands of students he has influenced. Beginning in 2018, a college scholarship will be awarded to a Foxborough High School graduating senior who participated in the FHS music program and reflects the culture of excellence cultivated by Mr. Massey within the Music Department and Foxborough High School. In addition, an annual professional development scholarship for current FPS music faculty will also be awarded.

In honor of this extraordinary educator and to support Mr. Massey’s legacy, please consider a donation to The Stephen C. Massey Scholarship Fund. Here’s how….

Checks should be made out to the “Foxboro Music Association – Stephen C. Massey Scholarship Fund” and mailed to: Foxboro Music Association, PO Box 746, Foxborough, MA 02035; please enclose this form with your check:. Massey Scholarship Form.

FMA Needs Your Help

DO YOU LIKE VIEWING THE MUSIC CONCERTS ON FOXBORO CABLE???

Well…Foxboro Cable and FMA need your help to continue to record and broadcast these great events!  Without the help of camera volunteers, Foxboro Cable cannot provide this support.  No experience necessary — Foxboro Cable will train you on the spot!

The amount of coverage any organization gets is a function of how many camera volunteers come forward. It is a partnership.

Please email Neil Kaiser at guncka@Verizon.net to let him know of your interest. He will then add you to his mailing list. Neil sends monthly calendars with requested needs and assignments.  It is at that point that you accept an assignment, so your volunteering is flexible to suit your schedule.  He is most in need of elementary and middle school coverage, so please spread the word. THANK YOU!!
