The Carey Family Scholarship

Past Westfield State Foundation Chair Sheridan “Bing” Carey ’65 continues to give to the Westfield State University community.

Having served as Vice-Chair of the Foundation Board and twice as Chair, Carey has contributed throughout the years to the success of the Foundation, applying his life-long interest in investments for the University’s benefit. He has also given of himself in numerous other ways to the University. Most recently, Carey and his wife, Eileen, donated a piano to the University’s Music program—just one more example of his generous spirit and commitment to students and faculty.

During the summer, Bing enjoys sailing his Sabre 38-2 named “Indian Summer” in and around his home port of Hyannis, MA.
