(Farmingdale, NY - April 6, 2017) IFMA Long Island Chapter congratulates Farmingdale State College’s Spring 2017 Farmingdale Foundation Scholarship awardees Daniel Parks (Mechanical Engineering Technology) and Magbert Rafuna (Mechanical Engineering Technology).

IFMA-LI Board Members and College President Dr. John S. Nader presented Daniel and Magbert each with $500 scholarships at the 17th Annual Scholarship Reception held at the Campus Center Ballroom.

The scholarships are funded each semester by generous donations from the chapter’s members. 

IFMA Long Island Chapter established the two scholarships in 2016 for students studying in the college’s Construction Management and Facility Management programs. The scholarship was implemented each semester to foster interest in facility management and to help students engage with the chapter’s members. Student’s will also receive a complimentary membership to IFMA Long Island Chapter.  

The chapter thanks board member Jennifer Hermann of Altice USA for her continued efforts to administer the scholarship each semester.
