Mike Murphy, senior vice president of QuickChek, announced that the company will donate $25,000 to William Paterson University, with most of the funds supporting scholarships for students in the Cotsakos College of Business.
Murphy has been a regular speaker at the College’s annual Crux of Industry Niche (COIN) bootcamp, now in its fifth year, where students majoring in business or economics meet and interact with industry leaders.
“It is always great to see the enthusiasm of the students at this event,” he says. “It compelled me to see what QuickChek could do to support this great program. As a company, we are people driven and believe in the growth and development of our people. I know that William Paterson feels the same way about its students.”
“We are so grateful for this generous donation from QuickChek, as well as the partnership we’ve established with the company through Mike Murphy and Dean Durling, president of QuickChek,” says Pam Ferguson, vice president of Institutional Advancement at William Paterson. Durling has been a keynote speaker for the College, speaking to students as part of a business leadership forum series.
The $25,000 donation will go towards need-based scholarships in the Cotsakos College of Business; scholarships given out at the COIN event; and $2,500 to support the University’s annual golf outing.
